CSRO's Caribbean GT3/4 Championship enters the FINAL Round...

Tonight, we close off what turned out to be the most challenging series even for the swift. With talks of balancing the cars at the behest of some of the fastest guys on the grid, there will be even more of a challenge as we take the GT3/4 Championship to Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst!


Mount Panorama is a 6.213 Km (3.861 mi) long, 23 turns street circuit located in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia. The track has an unusual design by modern standards, with a 174 m (571 ft) vertical difference between its highest and lowest points, and grades as steep as 1:6.13. From the start-finish line, the track can be viewed in three sections; the short pit straight and then a tight left turn into the long, steep Mountain straight; the tight, narrow section across the top of the mountain itself; and then the long, downhill section of Conrod Straight, with the very fast Chase and the turn back onto the pit straight to complete the lap. The circuit was opened on 17 March 1938 and is an FIA Grade 3 venue. It currently hosts the Supercars Bathurst 1000, Intercontinental GT Challenge and GT World Challenge Australia as some of its events and its track record is 1:59.291 by Christopher Mies in his Audi R8 LMS GT3 set back in 2018.
