A Pack of Uninvited Kangaroos Invade Endurance Racing Track

Who do you think won the race: the kangaroos or the GT3?

Australia’s International Endurance Race, Liqui-Moly Bathurst, has been home to a rather endearing scene this year.

Numerous V8 Supercars and GT cars were racing this weekend, down in Bathurst, when a pack of rogue kangaroos invaded the racing track.

Thanks to the race control and the drivers handling the situation so well, the “unprofessional hazard” was taken under control. Thankfully, no kangaroos were harmed.

However, apparently, this is not a new scenario. Similar cases had happened before, therefore, the team knew how to handle the situation. 

You might be asking why this is happening. Apparently, with the recent wildfires and the significant drought in the area, the wildlife animals are struggling to find food. With the recent events, it can be said that many more kangaroos can be seen invading the track from now on. 

All in all, little kangaroos hopping along the race line is a sight to see. You can also take a good look at the GT3 cars since they had to move pretty slower than what we've been accustomed to.

Rogue kangaroos in the racing track is a quintessentially Australian thing. And truly, it doesn’t get any more Australian than this.
