Lowndes, Davison step up for 2023 12 Hour

BATHURST legend Craig Lowndes will only have to wait until the first weekend of February for his tilt at The Mountain in 2023.

For the second straight year, Lowndes will lead an Ash Seward Motorsport-run Scott Taylor Motorsport entry at the Bathurst 12 Hour, raising funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia.

A driver roster of Lowndes/Alex Davison/Geoff Emery/Scott Taylor has been retained – but this time they’ll vie for Pro-Am honours.

Having driven a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car in the 2022 edition, the quartet will return in Taylor’s Mercedes-AMG GT3.

Their campaign earlier this year raised more than $67,000 towards the PCFA.

“I am excited to be heading back to Mount Panorama with good mates for a great cause,” said Lowndes, who was inducted into the Supercars Hall of Fame less than a fortnight ago.

“Prostate cancer has unfortunately impacted my family, so running a car in support of PCFA is a chance for us to have the conversation about getting checked, raising funds and having a red hot go at the podium”.

Davison added: “This year was a great experience driving with good friends and for a really worthy cause that has touched us all.

“It was easy to agree to come back and the step into the Mercedes AMG takes it to another level.

“Ultimately we’re out there to have a good time and do everything possible to raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and if we can do that and enjoy the weekend as well then it will be very worthwhile.”

Lowndes/Davison/Emery/Taylor finished the 2022 race outright 10th and first in Class C.

Next year’s event will be held across February 3-5.
