AN EXCITING new publication charting the rise of the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour as an international force has been announced today – with a Race Torque connection.

To be published by Aaron Noonan’s AN1 Media organisation and edited by TRT’s Richard Craill, ‘Bathurst: Going Global – 10 Years of Australia’s International Enduro 2011-2020’ will document a decade of the 12-Hour’s GT era.

The 320-page, hardcover, limited edition collector’s book, will chart the event’s rise in global esteem and importance across the last decade, with reflections from key players, winners and influencers throughout the period.

Illustrated by over 500 stunning images from elite photographers Andrew Hall and Dirk Klynsmith, the book will feature a photo of every car to have competed in the Bathurst 12 Hour from 2011 through to 2020 including non-starting and non-qualifier cars, headlined by the exotic, outright class entries including machines produced by Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Honda, Lamborghini, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG, Nissan and Porsche.

Along with dedicated chapters on each race, recapping the events from that year’s running plus its wider context in the growth of the race, the book will feature a comprehensive list of results from 2011-2020 plus the name of every driver to take part in the race across the period.

Available here for pre-order, ‘Bathurst: Going Global – 10 Years of Australia’s International Enduro 2011-2020’ complements recent fast-selling books by the publisher that documented every Holden and every Ford to compete in the Bathurst 1000.
