Huge field for a great race

WA’S PETER MAJOR and JORDAN LOVE are among an international field 175 drivers primed for the Bathurst 12H February 2-4 around Australia’s favorite mountain. The Perth pair, who blazed an indelible trail across the country’s race tracks in 2017,  join Adelaide’s JOHN GOODACRE behind the wheel of the spritely #96 Ford Focus V8, prepared by MARC Cars Australia.  

“I’m excited to get back up to Bathurst for the 12hr, it’s such a great event with coverage world-wide and so many international teams.    Last year I ran my own little team, so there was a lot going on in the lead up and also at the event.    This year I’m excited to just get up there and drive.      Bathurst is such a demanding track so any laps there a valuable and I’ll be racing there this year as part of the championship I am doing, so it’s important to get the laps in.    We finished 3rd in Class B last year and I also had a one-off drive in a Toyota 86 at the Bathurst 1000.    After the 3rd in the last race, I’m hoping we can jump up a couple of steps.    Teaming up with my good mate Jordan Love again this year, so two WA guys in one car flying the flag.    Now that will be fun!”  Peter Major.
