After six attempts at taking out Australia’s international endurance race, Bentley Team M-Sport have finally tasted success at Mount Panorama with the #7 of Jules Gounon, Maxime Soulet and Jordan Pepper winning the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.
A late scare thanks to incoming weather didn’t put off the squad with Frenchman Gounon bringing the car home over half a minute ahead of their next closest competitor, crushing the field in the final portion of the race.
Resetting the race distance record at 313 laps, car #7 finished the race mere seconds before the heavens opened, making it difficult for the rest of the field to complete the 12 hour endurance event.
