It's happened before and it will likely happen again.
Every time any kind of racing event takes place at Mount Panorama, there's always the chance of hitting a kangaroo. The first Safety Car deployment in today's Bathurst 12 Hours was for just that.
The No. 42 BMW E46 M3 GTR went crashing into the wall with major front-end damage, coming to a rest at Conrod. Driver Anthony Glibertston indicated that he had hit a roo, causing the Class D team to retire from the race.
The race resumed with the No. 15 Phoenix Racing Audi on point.
