Jim Hunter, Gavin Bulla and Barton Mawer drove the Jim Hunter Motorsport Subaru WRX to victory at the inaugural Eastern Creek 8 Hour in December 2010.
After 249 laps, just one lap separated the winner from the Barry Morcom/Nathan Morcom/Garry Holt Morcom Motorsport BMW 335i, with a trouble-plagued VIP Petfoods Evolution 9, driven by Tony and Klark Quinn, placed third.
Channel 7 Motorsport commentator and media identity Neil Crompton had a lucky escape when the Number 35 Pro-Duct car he was racing caught fire during a fuelling stop.
