2012 Bathurst 12hr Part 2
***View in HD***
Rentcorp Motorsport driver, and 2012 Formula 3 prospect, Duvashen
Padayachee competed onboard the #35 Ric Shaw Racing/Sennheiser Mazda RX-7
in the 2012 Bathurst 12 Hour Endurance race. Competing for the Invitational
Class (I) honours, the weekend started well with the #35 car qualifying
16th out of the quality 26 car grid, and first in class. Duvashen started
the race at 6:15am on Sunday the 26th, and completed a tough 1.5 hour stint
before handing the car over to his team mates. Sadly the car retired after
only 2.5 hours, due to extensive damage after a accident at Skyline. They
were leading class I at the time.
"With the backing from major sponsor Sennheiser, Ric Shaw has certainly
built a very competitive endurance race car. It ran like clockwork all
weekend and was pretty fast on full fuel, as well as being relatively easy
to drive, which is very important for endurance racing.
It was an unforunate end to the weekend but that's Bathurst, it can claim
the best car's and driver's. I must thank the entire team at Ric Shaw
Racing and the crew on the weekend for a fantastic job of running the car
faultlessly all weekend, team sponsor Sennheiser, Ric Shaw himself and my
personal sponsors Rentcorp Forklifts, Demon Tweeks UK and Arai Helmet."
Duvashen was disappointed with having to end the weekend on the sidelines,
but is looking forward to returning to the 'mountain' for next years event.
