Randle returns for charity-inspired Bathurst tilt

THOMAS Randle will reunite with brothers Ben and Michael Kavich at the upcoming Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour as the trio bids to better their fourth-place finish last year.

But even more important is the cause underpinning their campaign, supporting breast cancer clinical trials research.

The Kavich brothers’ Race For A Cure efforts have raised more than $175,000 over the years since Ben’s wife Toula was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016.

For Randle, himself a cancer survivor, his involvement comes after he last month raced with Cam Waters and Craig Lowndes at the Bathurst 12 Hour in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be racing again with Ben and Michael, especially supporting a cause that’s particularly close to my heart,” said Randle.

“Hopefully, we can get a great result in the X Class.”

Randle and the Kavich brothers – whose father Tony was the inaugural AUSCAR champion in 1988 – will again steer a Garth Walden Racing-prepared BMW M2 Competition.

“Michael and I are looking forward to the race more than ever and we are excited that Thomas has decided to join us again, along with Yellow and BCT,” said Ben Kavich.

“We are hoping for an even stronger showing both on the track and importantly in the fundraising than was achieved last year.”

The Bathurst 6 Hour will take place across March 29-31.
