RHC Lawrence-Strom will reunite drivers Daren Jorgensen, principal of RHC, Brett Strom and Cameron Lawrence in the No. 5 BMW 1M at the Bathurst 6 Hour, after a successful debut at Mount Panorama Circuit for the Bathurst 12 Hour. Jorgensen, Strom and Lawrence partner to create the only United States driver lineup for the Easter weekend event.
The Bathurst 12 Hour proved to be an eventful opening for RHC Lawrence-Strom and its support partner, MARC Cars, after contact from another car forced the No.13 BMW M4GT4 to make a lengthy pit stop and still finished an impressive 4thplace. After narrowly missing a podium finish at the Bathurst 12 Hour, RHC Lawrence-Strom will return to Mount Panorama Circuit with high expectations. In addition to competing in a BMW 1M for the Bathurst 6 Hour, Jorgensen and Lawrence will compete in Class A of the Production Sports Cars with the RHC Lawrence-Strom No.13 BMW M4GT4.
The No.5 BMW 1M and No.13 BMW M4 GT4 will be operated by MARC Cars and supported by partners and sponsors, including: JET Environmental, JET Battery Services, Strom Motorsports, Feal Suspension, Upper Ninety and Apex SportsCar Academy.
The 2018 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will be held between 30 March and 1 April 2018. Information on live streaming and timing and scoring for the Easter weekend event can be found at http://www.bathurst6hour.com.au/live-frisat.
Daren Jorgensen, Driver
“The Bathurst 12 Hour was an incredible international debut for RHC Lawrence-Strom and the BMW M4GT4. Ryan (McLeod) and his team at MARC Cars were exceptional to work with at the Bathurst 12 Hour, solidifying a partnership for additional races this season and well into the future. I’ve put together a great program with MARC Cars and our drivers, Brett Strom and Cameron Lawrence, and I’m confident that we will have a strong showing at the Bathurst 6 Hour.”
Brett Strom, Driver
“Competing at Mount Panorama Circuit for the Bathurst 12 Hour was one of my racing dreams but being able to go back and compete again in the same year is unbelievable. We’ll be competing at the Bathurst 6 Hour in a BMW 1M which is perfect as I built and run this same platform in the US with Daren and have been working closely with MARC Cars on getting it prepped for the event. I’m super confident in the equipment and Ryan’s team and looking forward to competing in my first Bathurst 6 Hour.”
Cameron Lawrence, Driver
“Mount Panorama is unlike any other track I’ve ever competed at. Everyone dreams of going to Bathurst and after competing in the 12 Hour, it’s unlike anything I imagined. I’m thrilled to go back to Bathurst for the 6 Hour and work with MARC Cars. MARC Cars brings a wealth of knowledge from a decade of competition at Mount Panorama and I’m looking forward to getting back to Bathurst and picking up where we left off.”
