Like many offices around the country, the first question asked Moday morning was, “Did you see the race?”. In what many are calling the greatest Bathurst race in living memory, Australians saw records smashed, legends fall, new champions rise, and generally, edge-of-your-seat intensity at it’s best.
Pepsi Max FPR’s Chaz Mostert and Paul Morris achieved the unthinkable, rising from last position on the grid, to claim the top podium title in Australia’s most historic motor race. Chaz has worked with V-Sport for some time, giving us great GoPro footage all while sporting Stilo’s popular helmet of choice, the ST4WGT.
Getting to the finish at Bathurst is not a matter of just getting the car across the line. A driver’s endurance is tested just as much as their Supercar’s. Inside a V8 Supercar, it’s not uncommon for temepratures to rise above 50 degrees. Keeping seocnd place getters James Moffat and Taz Douglas from Nissan Motorsport, and third place getters Nick Percat and Oliver Gavin from HHA in cool comfort while battling the mountain was their Sabelt Ti600 race suits, also supplied by V-Sport.

A big congratulations to all who finished, and especially the teams at Pepsi Max FPR, Nissan Motorsport and HHA.
