Nurburgring.com.au scores class win at the 2013 Bathurst 12 hour

The nurburgring.com.au sponsored Lotus Exige has won class C at the 2013 Bathurst 12 hour. In an action packed race, team and car owner Rob Thomson steered his Lotus with co-drivers Romano Sartori & Liam Talbot to a well earned class win and 19th outright. With over 50 entries in the race the Lotus outgunned it’s opposition class runners to finish well clear in Class C (GT4).

The race saw many safety cars and the team worked to their plan of staying out of trouble by managing the slower and faster cars to perfection and avoiding risks whilst maintaining a steady race pace seeing the Lotus gradually climb up the field from a starting position of 38th to finish in the top 20.

The result was very emotional for driver Rob Thomson, Rob’s Father passed away on race eve after a brave battle with cancer and the win is dedicated to him and before the race Rob was determined to ensure the result was only a win.
