Bathurst 12 Hour Countdown – 9 days till race day
Now we are into single digits in our countdown till the Green Flag drops on the Bathurst 12hr race.
Today we feature the Maranello Motorsports Ferrari F458 race car.
Maranello have a long history at this race and are the defending champions, whilst they will not have Craig Lowndes in the car this year, they still have a strong team aboard in Mika Salo, Ben Collins (The Ex Stig from Topgear) and Tony D’Alberto.
Maranello have had some interesting liveries over the last few years, including a camo look a few years back, this year the team will be sponsored by McDonalds which give the car a very bright look.
This Ferrari is another amazing sounding car as it races around the mountain, it is high pitch italian exotic noise is just amazing to listen to.
This shot is take as the car heads through the Esses at the top of the Mountain, this spot is up on the hill above the racetrack, and it is shot with a 400mm lens as the cars is half way through the Esses.
