This 2005 Subaru Impreza RX has contested four consecutive Bathurst 12 Hour events, from 2007 through to 2010. In 2009 and 2010, crewed by an all-Bathurst team of drivers, the car placed first in its class at both events, racing as Team Bathurst.
The Bathurst 12 hour race was revived in 2007 to return a production-based endurance race back to the Mount Panorama circuit. In 2007, a total of 32 cars were entered across 8 classes, and over the following four years, the event gained a reputation for competitive racing, attracting professional and amateur drivers from across Australia and overseas.
