    A host of drivers will attempt to complete 36 hours of racing across two weekends and on opposite sides of the world over the next ten days. Ten drivers will contest both this weekend’s Rolex 24 at Daytona and the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour endurance classics, split by a more than 15,000km trip in between where they will cross the international date line as part of a 20-plus hour journey from airport to airport.

    Rule changes open up Intercontinental GT Challenge

    The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour (3-5 February) is the first event of the second year of the Intercontinental GT Challenge, the only global GT3 and GT4 championship. In contrast to the inaugural season, manufacturers no longer need to enter their cars separately. In 2017, as long as they hold an international licence, all cars and drivers entered in the overall GT3 class, together with the manufacturers in the overall GT4 class are automatically eligible to score points towards the titles.
