All-female line-up enters Bathurst 6 Hour

AN all-female line-up will chase class victory in the 2023 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour.

Chelsea Angelo, Rianna O’Meara-Hunt and Chelsea Herbert will join forces in the BPRO Toyota 86 which took out Class D in this year’s edition.

On that occasion, the car was shared by Jaylyn Robotham, Mitchell Wooller and BPRO team principal Brett Parrish.

Angelo is best known of the trio, with Super2 and TCR Australia experience to her credit.

“I’m so excited to race in the 6 Hour with BPRO in their Toyota 86,” she said.

“It will be my first official enduro and to have two other females by my side is incredible.

“We all have credibility behind us as racers, and I couldn’t be any more pumped.

“I’m also excited about returning to The Mountain. I’m very fortunate to have raced there three times, ranging from Formula 3, Super2 and TCR.

“Racing in an 86 will be a blast, and I’m really looking forward to the weekend. I know I’ll be giving it my all.”

Herbert described the chance to tackle Mount Panorama as a dream.

“To be presented with this opportunity to race the 6 hour with two other talented females is a race that simply can’t come soon enough,” she said.

“I am really looking forward to getting back into the Toyota 86 after racing in the NZ championship earlier this year, but this time, competing across the ditch.

“Two Chelseas, two Kiwis and three females sounds like a race-winning combo!”

Herbert’s compatriot O’Meara-Hunt added: “I am so excited to be a part of this experience and proven race-winning team driving alongside two other very talented female drivers.

“Laps around Bathurst has always been a dream and I feel privileged to be given this opportunity so early in my racing career.”

The 2023 Bathurst 6 Hour will be held on April 7-9.
