Huff Prepared To Move Mountains To Win Bathurst 12 Hours

Bathurst 12 Hours on Australia’s spectacular and undulating Mount Panorama circuit (7-9 February).
Backed by OCC LASIK – part of a clinical centre in Ontario, Canada that specialises in ophthalmic surgery and eye care, including laser vision correction – Huff will wrestle a Rotek Racing-entered Audi R8 LMS around the merciless Mount Panorama circuit.

At 6.21km in length, Mount Panorama rises 174 metres and its undulating layout comprises of several challenging and unconventional corners, including The Dipper – a steep, sharp left-hander – and Forrest’s Elbow, which leads onto the 1.91km-long Conrod Straight.

Huff – the 2012 FIA World Touring Car Champion – carries a great deal of momentum ‘down under’ having had a run of success in endurance racing over the past 12 months.

Victory in the 2013 NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill with Rotek Racing last December was followed by a second place in the 2014 Dubai 24 Hours and second in class in the 24 Hours of Daytona, therefore the Newmarket-domiciled racer is naturally hoping his winning streak continues for the duration of his Aussie mountain run.

“Bathurst is always a highlight for me,” said Huff. “I raced there last year and thoroughly enjoyed myself, both on and off the track. The Mount Panorama circuit is legendary and completely unique – the run over the mountain is a hair-raising experience that’s full of unconventional corners and blind crests and bookended by a couple of long straights – while the Bathurst 12 Hours is growing year-on-year.

“It’s exciting to be linking up with Rotek Racing once again, following the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill success in December. I’m familiar with the Audi R8 LMS after racing one at Bathurst in 2013 and the team’s driver line-up is strong, so I’m naturally hoping to replicate the Thunderhill result. I seem to be on a bit of a roll in endurance racing, so let’s hope this winning streak continues in Australia!"
