A total of 54 cars have been entered for the 2013 Bathurst 12 Hour

A solid field of 54 cars have entered the 2013 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

A record 20 cars will travel from overseas to compete against the best GT and Production cars Australia across the February 8-10 weekend.

The three teams that filled the top three places in the 2012 race, Phoenix Racing, Erebus Motorsport and Clearwater Racing, have all confirmed their return for next year against, making up some of the 32 GT-specification entries.

The list includes 20 different manufacturers with teams coming from 10 different counties including Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Singapore, Germany, Hong Kong, United States of America, Belgium, Switzerland and France.

The French entry is one of most interest. The factory-run Peugeot RCZ France team will field two cars, with former 500cc world champion Mick Doohan slated as a potential starter.

Event director James O’Brien says that he is pleased with the initial entry list.

“As it always does, the entry list will likely change in its makeup in coming weeks as teams finalise their plans, but to have a 50-plus car field locked in vindicates the change to a GT3 format alongside production cars,” said O’Brien.

“We are particularly pleased at the level of international interest with 20 cars coming from overseas.

“The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour is fast becoming a ‘must win’ race on the international GT3 calendar and the 2013 edition should provide an entertaining spectacle and enhance the event’s reputation further.”

According to event organisers, a breakdown of GT vehicles doing double duty and competing in the opening round of the Australian GT Championship – to include the first 50-minutes of the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour – will be available soon.
