After a long and eventful 12hr race the #5 GT motorsports R8 LMS prepared by Melbourne Performance Centre has taken out class honours and 6th outright at the 2016 Liqui Moly Bathurst 12hr. MPC prepared 5 Audi R8’s for the event 4 of which were the all new LMS MY2016 versions. Rene Rast managed a stunning qualifying effort to put the 75 Jamec Pem car on the front row of the grid in second. But unfortunately suffered some minor issues throughout the race but managed to get back to 8th. The other 3 cars, 40, 74, and 9 all suffered damage and were not able to finish the grueling race which often breaks the hearts of the men and women who try to conquer it.
