Default The Bend Motorsport Park

Early next year they're hosting Le Mans cars for the first time and I aim to be there!!! I've been increasingly excited by these cars since finding the Mercedes C8, C9, C11 on Youtube. I have no idea why I wasn't paying attention until now and was previously focused on drag racing and V8 Supercars, but my interest plummeted when MB left the race.

In fact I hardly knew this track existed until my ears pricked up only a week ago! Hopefully there'll be a Benz engine or two in the Asian Le Mans field, but I'm sure I'll enjoy the sound regardless!

As my dad would always say before I drove anywhere.

“Watch the road”

Looking forward to your wrap up of the event.

We’re here and WOW! This complex is brand new & amazing! Like something from the States... And the cars are incredible!!! If it hadn’t rained yesterday we might’ve missed some amazing sights! We found a spot where we were literally in the middle of the action and found ourselves spinning around anticlockwise constantly! Enough to make you dizzy but what an experience!
