Utes driver Andrew Fisher shakes down his Bathurst 12 Hour ride at Wakefield Park

V8 Utes Series driver Andrew Fisher is preparing to step into unfamiliar territory behind the wheel of a left-hand-drive Porsche 997 GT3 Cup car in the Bathurst 12 Hour this weekend.

Fisher joined the Rentcorp Motorsport squad in a shakedown session at Wakefield Park recently.

He was chosen from a list of candidates pitching for the seat in a line-up that includes team owner Indiran Padayachee, Ric Shaw and Aaron Zerefos.

“I was pleasantly surprised at Andrew’s performance,” Padayachee said.

“This is his first time in a Porsche and he has never driven a left-hand-drive car before.

“It’s a thoroughbred race car, very different from his V8 ute, but within just a couple of laps Andrew was on the pace and looked very comfortable.

“I’ve known Andrew for years, raced against him in production sports and seen him in the utes.
