For Bon Anniversaire! events in general, see Bon Anniversaire.

Bon Troisième Anniversaire! is Really Rubbish Racing's thirtieth(!) Special Event, celebrating the third anniversary of the Club's first race in June 2011, and as such is the third such event to be held.

The race, as is traditional, will see two classes of car racing head-to-head on track at the same time. This year, as well as the usual LMP class gunning for the overall event victory, the race will play host to the final round of the GT Endurance Auto Racing Series which will make up the Grand Touring element of the event. Drivers from both the PRO and AM classes will be eligible for a GT class win and will score points towards the GEARS championship title.

MotoYeti's Acura is dialled in and ready to rock!
Maurizio has a new look for this iconic race
Kaibutsu go LMP.
