Bentley claims win at Bathurst 12 Hour

Bentley has finally broken through to end its Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour duck in a thrilling race at Mount Panorama.

The #7 Continental was in the fight all afternoon, leading at both the half and three-quarter-distance marks of the race amid a see-sawing battle with the #999 GruppeM Mercedes.

The first half of the race was framed by lead changes, big accidents and pit strategy, while the weather remained the question mark with dust and clouds circling the rural circuit.
