    Default Bathurst Motor Festival Easter 2014

    There were 4 Zds at this year's Bathurst Motor Festival. Bathurst is arguably Australia's most challenging motor racing circuit located on Mount Panorama a few hours west of Sydney.

    Peter H and I made the four day transcontinental trip trailering our Zds from Perth. All four Zds competed in the regularity events (essentially up against pre-nominated times but in reality attempting to post the best time possible). Attached is in car footage of my highlights from the 3 days on the track and some photos from the weekend.

    Great video, thanks for posting. That number 34 must of been a PITA, specially with that stunt down the end of conrod.
    Brings back memories watching the A9X, XU1 and the old XA Falcon doing laps. Didn't see any XY GTHO's or HT Holdens, getting rare these days.
    My father used to race motorcycles on the mountain, very long time ago. I might still have a couple of photo's somewhere.

    To race a bike at the Mountain would simply be heroic!

    Thanks for the video Chris, fun to watch. I was entered to go but due to uncertain engine problems did not risk it, intend to enter next year.
