The driver entry list has been released for the Bathurst 6 Hour

Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour organisers have released the list of drivers who will take part in this year’s running of the Easter production car enduro.

The inaugural race winners and last year’s runners-up Chaz Mostert and Nathan Morcom will pair up for the third year in a row, in a Ford Focus RS.

Tim Slade and Dylan Thomas also make for a strong combination when they drive a Mitsubishi EVO X together for the second year in a row.

There is continuity too in the form of Grant and Iain Sherrin, the 2017 Bathurst 6 Hour pole-sitters and Australian Production car champions again piloting a BMW M4.

Likewise, Craig Baird and Garth Walden are sharing a Mercedes-AMG A45, having missed out on a solid result last year with an engine failure while running fifth.

In the sister GWR A45, Steven Johnson will drive with Rob Woods and Marcel Zalloua.

Former APC champion Beric Lynton is bringing a brand new BMW M3 to share with former Supercars enduro driver Tim Leahey, who hails from nearby Orange.

Also among the 62-car field will be the FG Ford Falcon GT-F of Jeremy Gray and George Miedecke.

Meanwhile, Supercars rookie Todd Hazelwood is set to steer a Class B1 BMW 135i with Rob Rubis and Scott Turner.

In Class B2, Brian Walden, Michael Auld, and Richard Bloomfield will be attempting a third straight class win.

The 2018 Bathurst 6 Hour takes place from March 30-April 1.
