The 18th running of the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour endurance race is all set for Mount Panorama this weekend.

V8 veterans Craig Lowndes, Jamie Whincup and Garth Tander plus TV personality Grant Denyer are among those ready to take on the challenging circuit outside of Bathurst.

Known as "Australia's International Endurance Race", the Bathurst 12 Hour is a race for GT3, GT4 and invited production-based or specialised endurance vehicles.

Alan Jones and John Bowe are among the former winners, along with Lowndes and Whincup. They teamed up with Finland's Toni Villander to win the 2017 event in a Ferrari 488 GT3.
