BATHURST 6 HOUR WINNING CAR CONFIRMED FOR FINALE

 

Barry Morcom’s 2016 Bathurst 6 Hour winning BMW 335i has been confirmed for the 2016 Australian Production Car Series finale.

While Nathan Morcom and Chaz Mostert took the DPO BMW to victory in March of this year, this time around it will be regular production car racer Leigh Burgess and a yet-to-be confirmed steerer at the wheel.

“It is a great car, and I would definitely like to see it keep winning when we take her out on track at SMSP,” Barry Morcom said.

“The APC is a great series, I used to run with it but I haven’t for a while, and we will be back in 2017 for another go at the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour as well.

“We are building a new car at the moment, a Focus RS for the Six Hour, but as it is under construction it won’t be ready for November.

“When she rolls out in November, the car will look exactly the same as it did at Mount Panorama – we pretty much rolled it out of the truck and put it under the cover after the six hour, so we do have a bit of work to do in it.

“Not too much though, and we are confident it will be a strong entry.”

The DPO BMW 335i will be one of an expected 30 plus entries to hit Sydney Motorsport Park across November 11-13 for the final round of the 2016 series.

While the 2017 season dates are yet to be confirmed, the 2017 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour is already confirmed as part of next year’s season for the series.
