The leading Bentley Continental GT3 and BMW M6 GT3 have been knocked out of contention in the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, following a four-car accident in the closing stages of the race.

Both the No. 17 Bentley of Steven Kane and the pole-sitting No. 43 Team Schnitzer BMW of Chaz Mostert are in the garage after the two collided with a Class B Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car and Kevin Estre’s No. 991 Craft-Bamboo Racing Porsche 911 GT3 R at Cutting.

The three GT3 cars were battling for third position at the time, with the incident bringing out the race’s 13th full course caution of the race.

The No. 55 Strakka Racing Mercedes-AMG GT3 of David Fumaneli leads with two-and-a-half hours to go, ahead of the lone-remaining Jamec Pem Audi R8 LMS of Markus Winkelhock in second.

Patrick Long has been elevated to third in the No. 12 Competition Motorsports Porsche, with the Craft-Bamboo Porsche pitting to change over to Earl Bamber while under the yellow.
