Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour Update - Start 6:30am

AUSTRALIA'S longest motor race, the Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour got away to a spectacular start at 6.30 am today at Mount Panorama.

The pole-position winning Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10 of Steve Owen led off a field of 43 unmodified standard production cars with headlights blazing just after dawn on a dry track, but it was touring car veteran Glenn Seton, in a similar car, who took the lead up Mountain Straight and claimed first-lap honours.

Depending on pace dictated by the weather and other factors, the winning car is expected to complete around 1500 kilometres when it crosses the line at 6.30 pm.
