Racers Look to Mount Panorama
Round 10 of the 2014 Telkom Gaming Gran Turismo 6 (GT6) League will resume tomorrow on Mount Panorama as racers prepare for the end of an enduring season.
Mount Panorama Circuit, more commonly known as Bathurst, is a real world racing circuit in New South Wales, Australia. The track is host to a complete day/night cycle, which can be used to recreate the real-life 24-hour race and was used avidly to promote GT6 upon release.
As of writing, back-to-back Telkom Do Gaming Champion David 'GTAS_PEETHAM' Peetham sits top of the table while teammate Robin 'GTAS_Krsht' Van Merch and Justin 'justin watokal1' Jonck round off the podium in second and third respectively.
Interestingly, Mount Panorama has a woeful real-life safety record. Sixteen competitors, including 1967 World Drivers' Champion Denny Hulme who suffered a fatal heart attack at the wheel of his car, have lost their lives on the course. Let’s hope our racers have better luck.
