Why one Bathurst when you can have two?

Why just one race at Bathurst when you can have two? The bulls are heading into the season opener for 2024 and we are charging full steam ahead to start the year off with some champagne celebrations. 

Things are looking a little different around here, with the team now having the youngest driver line-up (some say it is also one of the most exciting we would tend to agree however we might be a little biased ;)) The newly revealed #87 Camaro will be joining Broc Feeney in #88 to make up the Red Bull Ampol Racing’s driver line-up for 2024, and let us tell you, we are can’t wait to see what they achieve. 

We kicked off strong at the start of the season with our Livery Landing event in Toowoomba, where we not only revealed our new season livery but also welcomed Will to the team by doing some pretty sick skids. 

Supercars are kicking off the season at the iconic Mount Panorama this year with the Bathurst 500 event which marks the second weekend to make up the Bathurst Superfest, with the Bathurst 12 hour taking place during the first week. Ready to conquer the mountain and be in the hunt from the very first race, the drivers are amped to get on track.

“It has been good to be able to race in Bathurst the week before the Bathurst 500, regardless of what car you are driving it’s good to get back on the track and get familiar with it. It’s a busy couple of weeks but it’s always fun to get to drive this track regards of the car you are driving, it’s always good to get seat time. I am pumped to get to be here for two weekends in a row. It’s all about getting the ball rolling for the year for the first round. It’s such a long year and anything can happen at these tracks. We didn’t have the best start to last year, so we are aiming to get some solid points right from round one and be in the hunt right from the start. Obviously, I’ll have to make sure I am getting in the right side of the car next week having been in the GT cars for the 12 hours, but it’ll be good to get back into a Supercar and readjust to driving one again.”

“Having the 12hr the week before the Bathurst 500 is definitely helpful, in the sense of just getting some seat time even though they are different cars. It’s a bonus that it is also the same track we get to race for the two weekends. There is a big difference between driving a GT and a Supercar. I’ll have to make sure my brake markers are right, I won’t have traction control and ABS. But like I said it is great to already have one weekend under my belt to get comfortable with the track for the year. In the lead up to weekend, I’ve been working closely with my engineer Andrew Edwards making sure we are talking the same lingo and that we are understanding what we both want.”
