Audi deploys aces for Adelaide title scrap

THE three contenders for the GT World Challenge Australia title will each have a global star helping their case this weekend in Adelaide.

EMA Motorsport had already announced Porsche Penske sensation Matt Campbell will slot in for Garnet Patterson as Yasser Shahin’s co-driver.

Shahin enters third in the standings, with Liam Talbot the Pro-Am series leader, seven points clear of fellow Audi driver Geoff Emery.

Talbot will have German ace Christopher Mies by his side in Adelaide, while Austria’s Max Hofer partners Emery.

It makes for an unusual situation where Mies and Hofer will both be out to defeat drivers they paired up with earlier in the year.

Hofer was Talbot’s co-driver at the first two rounds, and Mies partnered Emery in Perth.

Mies does have runs on the board in Adelaide, having won two of the three races there last year with Shahin.

V8 Sleuth’s coverage of the VAILO Adelaide 500 is proudly presented by Bad Boy Mowersexplore the world of Bad Boy Mowers with the new Spring/Summer catalogue of high-performance mowers here.

Emery meanwhile is looking to become the first driver to win four Australian GT titles, his previous successes having come in 2017, ’18 and ’19.

There will be a 40-minute GTWC race on each of Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week in Adelaide.
