Six champions in stacked Porsche Bathurst field

PORSCHE Carrera Cup Australia has unveiled arguably the most stacked entry list in its history for next week’s visit to Mount Panorama.

There will be six Carrera Cup champions among the 30-car field, including international stars Harry King and Chris van der Drift.

Kiwi van der Drift has won three titles in Carrera Cup Asia, while 22-year-old King has conquered both the Great Britain and Benelux (Belgium/Netherlands/Luxembourg) editions.

Harri Jones, the 2022 Australian champion, also returns to race for his own team, after spending most of this year abroad in Porsche Supercup and Carrera Cup Germany.

In addition to those three are previous title winners Down Under: Alex Davison (2004), Fabian Coulthard (2005) and David Wall (2017).

Somewhat ironically, missing from the grid will be 2023 points leader Callum Hedge – who van der Drift is subbing in for – as he juggles a campaign to win two series on different continents.

Also of note is that five of the 30 drivers will be competing as co-drivers in the Repco Bathurst 1000 race next Sunday: Coulthard, Davison, Dylan O’Keeffe, Dale Wood and Sandown 500 runner-up David Russell.
