The entry list for next month’s Armor All Bathurst 12 Hour has been revealed.

A 32-car field has entered to take part in the February 26 event – the second time that international GT3-specification vehicles have been permitted to compete.

The field boasts an impressive 12 overseas entries.

Last year’s winner’s Audi – who finished first and second in their R8 LMS – will face a tougher task this year, taking on the likes of Ferrari, Mercedes and Lamborghini for outright honours.

Fans of V8 Supercars racing will be well catered for in the event, with the likes of TeamVodafone’s Craig Lowndes, Lucky 7 Racing’s Tim Slade and Jim Beam Racing’s Steven Johnson competing in outright contending cars.

Other well-known names to suit up for the race include Carrera Cup drivers Craig Baird and Steven Richards, plus Touring Car Masters champion John Bowe.

Also confirmed is former F1 driver Christian Klien, who will team up with Rob Thompson and Sarah Harley in a Lotus Exige S.
