The 32-year-old Austrian is a works driver for KTM and will be making her Mount Panorama debut at the February 16-18 event.

She will share an Audi-powered KTM X-Bow GT2 with David Crampton and Trent Harrison, with the car to be prepared by GWR Australia and supported by KTM itself.

“Bathurst has always been our Achilles heel in the past,” Crampton said, mechanic issues having last year forced them to swap pre-race into an Audi R8.

“But 2024 will definitely be our year. Our team is better positioned than ever, with fantastic support from KTM in Austria which we have never had before, as such I think this year’s entry is the highest quality team we have ever put together for this race.”

Among the cars the X-Bow will face in the Invitational class will be a Matt Stone Racing MARC GT, and a V8 Vortex.
