Updated: The 2022 Bathurst 1000 field

Just seven vacancies remain for the 2022 Bathurst 1000, despite the field growing to 29 cars.

Aaron Seton has become the latest driver to score a call-up for the October 6-9 event, slotting in alongside Jack Le Brocq at Matt Stone Racing.

There are still some moving parts to shake out, however, with Team 18 co-driver James Golding expected to take up a full-time opportunity for the remainder of the Supercars Championship season at PremiAir Racing.

That would create a key opening at Team 18 in the #20 entry of Scott Pye.

Elsewhere, co-driver announcements have yet to be made for either PremiAir Racing car, nor MSR’s #35 (Todd Hazelwood) or Brad Jones Racing’s #4 (Jack Smith). The same goes for the wildcards of Anderson Motorsport and Matt Chahda Motorsport.

Pending any reshuffles involving the Team 18 seat, Cameron Hill and Tyler Everingham are among the favourites to wind up at PremiAir.

Jayden Ojeda and David Wall meanwhile are logical options to remain at MSR and BJR, respectively.

Anderson has openly targeted a household name to partner in his Dick Johnson Racing-built Mustang; and Super2 Series race winner Jaylyn Robotham has been linked to the MCM drive.

It’s unclear whether Garry Jacobson will take on The Mountain at all following his sudden post-Darwin dumping.
