Two familiar Australian icons will adorn the Team Phoenix Audi R8 LMS race cars for this year’s Bathurst 12 Hour event.

The Audi R8 LMS will return to Mount Panorama on February 24-26 to defend its 2011 Bathurst 12 Hour title under the cover of two famous Australian animals. The pair of Team Phoenix Audi R8 LMS race cars will be disguised as a ‘Redback Spider’ and a ‘Kangaroo’.

Australian drivers Craig Lowndes, Warren Luff and Mark Eddy will be driving a white R8 LMS, complete with a graphic of a ‘Redback Spider’ sitting in a black web that covers the entire surface of the car. The International team of Christer Jöns, Christopher Mies and Darryl O’Young will race a black R8 LMS, with the world famous yellow traffic sign that depicts a kangaroo reproduced on the bodywork.
