The Bathurst 12 Hour is only a few hours away and will be getting underway at 05:50 local time on Sunday morning.
Phoenix Racing will be starting from pole position with the #15 "Kangaroo" liveried Audi R8 LMS ultra driven by Markus Winkelhock, Marco Mapelli and pole-man, Laurens Vanthoor. The German team's second car has a very special revival of a unique bit of Audi motorsport history in Australia. The #16 Audi R8 LMS ultra, driven by Felix Baumgartner, Christopher Haase and Stéphane Ortelli, is wearing a "Crocodile" themed livery.
As we wait for the beginning of the 2015 Bathurst 12 Hour, let's look back at the previous time that the "Crocodile" raced in Australia. We have embedded the two-hour highlights package of the 2000 ALMS Race of a Thousand Years below, enjoy:
