Ranger Lifting to compete in 2021 Bathurst 6 Hour car race
Ranger Lifting, a NSW-based lifting and rigging company, has entered a strong team to compete in this year’s Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour. Having been cancelled altogether in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Australian Racing Group car enduro is back this year and will be held over the Easter long weekend, 2-4 April 2021.
Piloting the Falcon GT, the last production GT built for motorsport in Australia, will be experienced drivers, Aaron McGill and Mick Caine. Both are fierce competitors with years of racing expertise. Aaron is the record holder of the most starts in the Dunlop Super 2 V8 supercars as well as a regular in the Touring Car Masters, also driving a Falcon. He is joined by Mick Caine who is a veteran of 12-hour sport car races in Australia and this will be his third six hour event.
The team has undergone intense preparation over the past six months with the goal of winning their class. This would place them in the top 10 of a 64 car field. While the Falcon GT is one of the heaviest cars in the field, it also boasts one of the most powerful engines.
Ranger’s managing director, Steve Thacker, is a team owner and also a major sponsor. He said, “I’m excited at the prospect of being involved in the resurgence of class and production racing at Mount Panorama. It’ll be racing like it used to be.”
A number of Ranger’s industry partners including Blacksnake, Skylotec and Agility Financial Service also feature on the Falcon GT racecar.
