28 entries confirmed for Bathurst 12 Hour

By

A total of 28 cars will enter the 2023 Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour next month with eight cars entered into the Pro class of the race that also serves as the first round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge.

In the Pro class, Mercedes-AMG will support four cars, BMW will have two, while Porsche and Audi will each be represented by one car. Team WRT will run the pair of BMW M4 GT3’s and last year’s race winners SunEnergy1 return with its Mercedes-AMG GT3.

Legendary Australian Supercars team Triple Eight Racing will enter a Mercedes-AMG GT3 in the eight-car Pro-Am class.

Drivers were not released as part of Tuesday’s announcement but notable names who have already committed include Valentino Rossi, Craig Lowndes, Supercars champion Shane van Gisbergen, and reigning DTM champion Sheldon van der Linde.

Of the 28 cars on the grid, six are non-GT3 entries in the race’s invitational class. This includes a single Porsche 911 Cup, a Mercedes-AMG GT4, and two MARC Cars Australia, including the MARC II V8 that won the invitational class previously.
