Bathurst 12 Hour grid, 2023: Where every car will start the race

THIS is how the grid will look when the 2023 Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour starts on Sunday morning.

Maro Engel took his second Allan Simonsen Pole Award with a stunning 2m00.8819s lap to give he and teammates Raffaele Marciello and Mikhail Grenier pole position in their #999 GruppeM Mercedes-AMG GT3.

Alongside them on the front row will be the #888 Triple Eight Mercedes-AMG of Broc Feeney, Maximilian Goetz and Shane van Gisbergen.

A pair of exclusions from the Top 10 Shootout result in a few changes in the back half of the top 10.

Both the #32 BMW and #74 Audi were stripped of their times, dropping them to the fifth row of the grid for Sunday’s race.

The full 26-car field that started the weekend will not make it to the start of Sunday’s race after a series of incidents during practice and qualifying involving Invitational Class runners.

The #52 MARC II V8 of Keith Kassulke, Hadrian Morrall and Cameron McLeod was withdrawn from the event following Kassulke’s terrifying crash in Practice 4 on Friday afternoon.

The #66 Daytona Sportscars Sin R1 has also been withdrawn after enduring a difficult weekend where it was plagued by a persistent oil leak through Friday’s running before a hard crash at McPhillamy Park during Practice 5.

Another car to sustain damage on Saturday was the #111 MARC I Mazda, which crashed during Qualifying 1 with Grant Donaldson at the wheel, although work continues to repair the car in time for the race.

The Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour is scheduled to start at 5:45am AEDT on Sunday.
