Full Carrera Cup Pro-Am line-up revealed
The full 44 driver line-up for the Phillip Island Carrera Cup Pro-Am has been released ahead of the May 22-24 Shannons Nationals event.
As previously reported, the list of guests is headlined by V8 Supercars stars Scott McLaughlin, Nick Percat and Tim Slade and German GT ace Christopher Mies.
Experienced V8 Supercars co-drivers Dean Fiore, Alex Davison, Steve Owen and Dean Canto will also feature in what is expected to be a hotly contested pair of 36 lap races.
Six co-drivers have been sourced from the second-tier GT3 Cup Challenge, including Dunlop Series convert Geoff Emery.
Emery will partner Shae Davies, who is running a part-time Carrera Cup schedule this year in between his own Dunlop Series duties with Matt Stone Racing.
The Carrera Cup Pro-Am is one of two feature events at the Shannons Nationals meeting, with the Australian GT field also hosting its Phillip Island 101 enduro.
Mies, Canto, Owen, Emery, Davison, Cameron McConville, Michael Almond, Matt Campbell, Daniel Gaunt, Max Twigg and James Koundouris will all be tackling both categories.
