THE BATTLE FOR PRODUCTION CAR honours within the 2011 Armor All Bathurst 12Hour is gathering strength following conformation of a three-car BMW team entered thisweek by GWS Motorsport.One of the cars nominated by the successfuloperation is the same BMW 335i Turbo that won the2007 and 2010 races outright, this year with GarryHolt, John Bowe and Paul Morris sharing the drivingduties.The car that ended Mitsubishi’s shot at three wins ina row on the Mountain is known for its excellent fueleconomy and reliability – a trademark of BMW and akey component to the vehicle’s impressive victory inthis years’ dramatic rain-affected race.This year, the GWS Personell-sponosred car will bedriven by owner Peter O’Donnell, V8 Touring Car regular Matt Hansen and the experienced ChristianD’Agostin.The team will also enter a pair of BMW 130i modelsto battle for class victory once again.“The car has a great deal of credibility at Bathurstand, from a Production Car perspective, we’re looking to go very well,” O’Donnell, aclass winner on his Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour debut in 2009, said.“We have a very strong team. Most of our drivers have been to Bathurst before and weknow they are all capable. Garry Mennell from On Track Motorsport is preparing thecars and will put together the strongest group of people to work on them during theweekend, so all of our bases are covered.“We’re never going to beat the GT Cars, but that’s not the goal. We want to go out andwin our classes and I think we have the capability to do that.”O’Donnell said that in a GT car or in a Production car, racing at Bathurst was a rareopportunity.
