A man has been taken to hospital after crashing a ride-on lawn mower during final preparations for the Bathurst 12 Hour.
The man had been cutting grass verges at the famous Mount Panorama circuit when he lost control of the machine at Forrest’s Elbow.
He was treated at the scene before being transported to Orange Base hospital with unspecified injuries.
News of the incident quickly spread via social media as teams and drivers undertook their track walks ahead of tomorrow’s opening practice.
