The Cooma based driver broke the outright lap record of the famed 6.213km circuit in his Kumho shod Dallara Mercedes Benz F3 with a time of 2m03.8245s on the way to claiming his maiden win.

According to the Anthony the track's new surface and Kumho's Ecsta tyre are a match made in grip heaven but the record hasn't sunk in yet.

"We didn't struggle for grip at all. The tyres are great for these cars," said Chris Anthony.

"It's a big thing. It's just massive! I can't comprehend it all at the moment," he beamed.

"I wasn't concentrating on the laps. I was more focused on consistency and building a gap so when my engineer told me I broke Shane van Gisbergen's record I couldn't believe it."

Formula 3 is the only 'wings and slicks' category in Australia and uses a specially designed Kumho Ecsta tyre.

Powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0 litre motor, F3 highlights the relationship between grip, handling and speed.

Kumho shod Formula 3s also hold the record at Adelaide's Parklands Street Circuit, New South Wales' Wakefield Park and Queensland's Morgan Park.

"It's just phenomenal to be in the record books as the fastest man around Bathurst," added Anthony.

Tomorrow's Formula 3 podium will have a pink theme with the trophy recipients showing their support of the McGrath Foundation ahead of Kumho's major McGrath Foundation fundraiser Pink Fitters Day on Friday 2nd May.

Since its inception in 1960, Kumho Tyres has been a model of steady growth amid dramatic changes of business landscape. Driven by innovation in management and technical development Kumho has become one of the top ten tyre companies in the world.

Over the past half-century Kumho Tyres has built the foundation for a sustainable company, which has thrived through a full range of business environments.

Kumho has succeeded in the development of superior tyres for all vehicles including high performance, passenger, sports utility and recreational vehicles, as well as light trucks, heavy truck and buses, industrial, agricultural, mining and construction vehicles as well as aircraft.

Kumho produces more than 68 million tyres annually with a massive research and development program which comprises more than 600 research personnel and 300 testing machines at proving grounds in South Korea, China, Europe and North America, Kumho leads the world with the latest in tyre technology, safety and performance. In Australia Kumho markets an extensive range of tyres for cars, 4WD's, light commercials, trucks and buses with a network centred around five state locations with the ability to distribute tyres to retailers across all areas of Australia.
