Now that the dust has well and truly settled after the 2020 Bathurst 12 Hour, Grant Denyer has spoken about the difficulties that faced his team at this year's event.
Driving in the #29 Trofeo Lamborghini Huracan GT3, Denyer was in a team that featured 2012 Bathurst 1000 runner-up Dean Canto, Liam Talbot and Marcel Zalloua.
Canto lost the rear of the car during qualifying on Saturday, as he tipped into Skyline enduring a wild ride across the gravel trap and into the barriers.
Shaken but unhurt, the experienced racer extracted himself from the car to be alerted to a small fire in the engine bay, something which was quickly extinguished.
Whilst the incident looked dramatic and was replayed around the world, the biggest problem the team had to deal with was extracting the car from the top of the barriers without inflicting any further damage.
Fortunately the experienced recovery crews did just that, getting the #29 Trofeo Huracan back down to the pit garage for the team to begin work.
"I've never seen so many tear ups at that part of the mountain this early in the weekend, that was incredible," Denyer said.
"He [Canto] was pushing really hard we're obviously just trying to get ourselves into a nice position in our class - you know, Dean Canto can drive, there's nothing wrong with that bloke's skills but that was a really scary accident and to see it parked up on the wall is incredible.
"These are really, really horrific conditions, they're tough for the driver - its 65 degrees inside the car and the track is super hot so it's pretty slick," he said.
"Everyone is pushing so hard - and 80 per cent of the field are hot guns from Europe in factory supported cars and even those guys are binning them, so it's going to be a fair old race of attrition, but I'm so glad he's okay."
A lengthy investigation by the crew revealed no structural damage to the car.
Whilst a nervous hour to prepare the engine and gearbox to be fired back into life revealed that all was normal - the team had dodged a bullet, although a detailed final inspection and the replacement of damaged parts would see the team go without sleep as they repaired the car ahead of the race.
To applause from rival teams, the Trofeo crew had the car ready as the pit exit opened, allowing Canto to take his place on the grid for the 5:45am race start.
Lining up fourth in class, Canto made a conservative start through the darkness, before handing over to his teammates.
Incredibly the car ran flawlessly all day with the exception of one lengthy pit stop to address an issue with the left-rear suspension, something traced back to the qualifying incident.
