26Gran Turismo 6 headed to Bathurst 1000

"Anything you can do, I can do better." That seems to be what Gran Turismo 6 developer Polyphony Digital is saying with its fifth concept movie, which stars Australia's legendary Mount Panorama Circuit, home of the Bathurst 1000. While arch-nemesis Forza Motorsport 5 is sponsoring a car for the upcoming Bathurst 1000 race and including the track in the upcoming title, the Gran Turismo 6 camp has struck back, showing a gorgeous rendering of assorted vehicles being flung around the 3.8-mile, 23-tu

13Watch the Australian GT Championship take on Bathurst

The Australian GT Championship is one of the more entertaining race series going. Racers compete head to head in hardware plucked from our supercar dreams. Drivers campaign bruisers like the Ferrari 458 Italia, Porsche 911 GT3-R, Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Audi R8 and even the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Ginetta G55. There are few other places where you can see so many excellent vehicles go fender to fender. This year, the series got started at the infamous Bathurst circuit. If

20Eric Bana confirmed for Bathurst 12 Hour

Ask the typical gearhead what race they most want to attend and you'll probably here something about the 24 Hours of Le Mans (with a couple of mental patients no doubt pining for the 24 Hours of LeMons). Awesome race, great movie, viva la France and all that, but let's be honest. Le Mans has become so concerned with something called "safety" that they chicaned the Mulsanne Straight! As any fan of the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe will tell you, "Boo!"

15Toyota Aurion attempting to tackle Holden and Ford in Australia... again

Toyota is attempting to breach the large car market in Australia, again. Although past attempts were not exactly stellar, it thinks now it may have what it will take to succeed with the Aurion. This large front-wheel drive sedan effectively replaces the lamentable Avalon in the only market segment the company hasn't managed to make a dent in so far. The Toyota Aurion has already been advertised quite heavily and will hit dealerships soon, starting at an MSRP of AUS $34,990, including an electron
