Triple Eight reveals National Storage-backed 2024 Bathurst 12 Hour Pro entry

Triple Eight Race Engineering have revealed their striking Pro entry for the 2024 Bathurst 12 Hour, scheduled for February 16-18. The Mercedes-AMG GT3 will be piloted by Red Bull Ampol Racing’s Broc Feeney, and the team’s newest recruit Will Brown, who will compete in his first race for Triple Eight after being signed by the powerhouse team. Joining the team’s Supercars stars is Mercedes-AMG’s factory driver and Canadian national, Mikaël Grenier.

The team’s all Pro entry, featuring the synonymous #888, will be backed by National Storage, the leading self-storage provider in Australia and New Zealand and long-term partner of Triple Eight Race Engineering. The car will don the major backer’s iconic yellow and black corporate colours, and features support from Mercedes-AMG, LIQUI MOLY, Rotiform, Pilatus, Peak Marketing and OMP.

The team’s 2023 Pro entry featuring Feeney, Shane van Gisbergen and Maximilian Götz qualified on the front row for the 12-hour endurance race, before crossing the line in fifth place.

“The Bathurst 12 Hour is one of my favorite events of the year, so I can’t wait to get back there.

“The National Storage car looks awesome and I can’t wait to see it around the mountain. I’ve been using the off season to try and get as fit as possible, and we have a test day coming up along with some Supercars preparation, so there’s going to be plenty happening over the coming weeks.

“Having back-to-back events at The Mountain is going to be awesome. If I could race at Bathurst every week I would, so to do two in-a-row in some pretty cool cars is exciting. I love driving these GT cars and Bathurst is the best track for it.

“It’s exciting to have Will (Brown) on the team for his first event with Triple Eight as well. To have a weekend working with him before we get to the first Supercars event is going to be pretty crucial. To have someone like Mikaël and his experience join us is going to be invaluable as well.

“Last year, we qualified on the front row which was awesome, but we lacked in the race, so hopefully a bit more experience from myself and the team with these cars will help, and the goal is to be right up there at the end of the race against some super-fast guys in the field.

“It’s going to be challenging, but that’s why I love this race – you race against the best guys in the world on home soil.”

“It’s been great here at Triple Eight so far. It’s obviously a massive change for me this year moving teams, and now doing the Bathurst 12 Hour, it’s a lot to take in very early in the year.

“It’s not my first time at the 12 Hour, but it’s going to be my first race with Triple Eight. It allows myself to work closely with the team before we get to the first Supercars event the weekend after, so even though we’re going there to try and win the 12 Hour, it’s a great way for me to familiarize myself with the entire team.

“It’s great to have Broc as my new teammate. I’ve known Broc for years, I knew him when he was racing Toyota 86, he actually bought my car off me and it’s great being able to work with him. It’s funny though, you’ve come from being competitors last year and now we’re teammates. We get along great and hopefully we have a lot of fun racing.

“Broc has done a lot of miles in these GT cars; we’ve seen what he’s done in Asia which is really cool. I haven’t done as much so I’m definitely going to be looking at his footage and data, but we have a test day coming up so it will be great to learn from him and the team then.”
