ENDLESS Brake Pads win the Bathurst 6 Hour

/ENDLESS Brake Pads win the Bathurst 6 Hour

The Bathurst 6 Hour is a staple in the Australian motorsport calendar, attracting endurance drivers and teams from across the industry to stake their claims for fastest on the nations best-known circuit, Mt Panorama. In a field of 64 cars (the largest ever at Bathurst, beating the outstanding record by 1 car, set in 1969) it would be Luke Searle, Paul Morris and Barry Graham (BMW M135i Hatch) to take the overall win ahead of Chaz Mostert & Nathan Morcom (Ford Focus RS) with a difference of 9.7 seconds over 113 laps, both cars running ENDLESS Brake Pads and leaving a 14 second gap to 3rd place. Out of 64 starters, 28 cars were fitted with ENDLESS pads, making up just under half the racing field.

The Searles–Morris–Graham BMW M135i averaged 116.53km/h for 113 laps to take the win from Morcom and Mostert
