THE Repco Bathurst 1000 field is set for the 2022 edition of the ‘Great Race’.
There will be 28 cars on the Mount Panorama grid with Erebus Motorsport, Triple Eight Race Engineering and Matt Chahda Motorsport each entering a wildcard.
Holden, in its final ‘Great Race’ before the marque disappears from the Supercars grid at the end of 2022, once again has the lion’s share of the grid with 19 ZB Commodores on the entry list while nine Ford Mustang GTs will line up for the race start.
Evans is among the seven rookies set to line up for this year’s ‘Great Race’, while the Seton family will become the first family to have had three generations compete in the event when Aaron Seton, son of Glenn and grandson of 1965 winner Bo, makes his Bathurst 1000 debut.
Among the wildcard entries is four-time ‘Great Race’ winner Greg Murphy, making his first start in the race since 2014. The Kiwi legend is one of 11 former race winners in the 2022 field.
Nine of the driver combinations have continued on from last year’s event, although the reigning champions are not among them. Chaz Mostert will have Fabian Coulthard alongside him at Walkinshaw Andretti United with 2021 co-winner Lee Holdsworth driving full-time for Grove Racing in 2022.
The Repco Bathurst 1000 will take place across October 6-9.
