GALLERY: Internationals prepare for Bathurst
The Bathurst 12 Hour may still be five days away, but preparations are already in full swing for several international entries at Mount Panorama.
The Japanese Nissan Nismo, Hong Kong-based Craft Bamboo and English Motionsport teams have set-up camp in the Bathurst paddock, undertaking pre-event work.
The Motionsport outfit is preparing for its first race with its Prodrive-built Aston Martin, which enjoyed a brief shakedown at Donington Park before being dispatched to Australia on December 1.
GT Asia runners Craft Bamboo are also Bathurst rookies, while Nissan is making its second assault on the race after crashing out early last year.
The majority of cars are expected to arrive at Bathurst tomorrow while others, including the Trass Motorsport Ferrari, could be as late as Thursday following shipping delays from New Zealand.
Track action will begin Friday, with four 60 minute practice sessions scheduled.
