Eight former CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship drivers will make their start at next week’s Bathurst 12 Hour endurance race.
2016 and 2017 Champions Will Brown and Nick Rowe will once again become teammates, albeit in separate cars.
Brown will partner Keith Kassulke and Rod Salmon aboard the newly constructed MARC II, based on the popular Ford Mustang body shell.
Rowe will share a MARC Mazda V8 with Phillip Island Formula 4 race winner Tyler Everingham and experienced British Touring Car driver James Kaye.
Another Mazda V8 will be prepared for Zane Goddard and Drew Ridge alongside experienced endurance driver Rob Thomson
After making his Bathurst debut aboard a Porsche Carrera Cup car last October, Jordan Love also joins the MARC roster in a Focus V8 with John Goodacre and Peter Major.
Having spent the last couple of years racing in Europe’s Blancpain GT Series racing a KTM X-Bow and Lamborghini Gallardo GT3, Caitlin Wood will return to the GT4 specification KTM X-Bow with David Crampton and Team BRM driver coach and engineer Tim Macrow.
Porsche driver Brenton Grove will partner his father Stephen Grove and fellow former Team BRM Formula 3 driver Ben Barker aboard a GT3 Cup car.
All 12 hours of racing will be televised on the Seven Network, with coverage to commence from 5:45am on the Sunday morning (February 4th). Saturday’s Top 10 Shootout will be screened live on 7Mate.
