Porsche-duo Long and CJ joined by Campbell and Davison
For the 2018 edition of the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour American Porsche ace Patrick Long and car owner David Calvert-Jones will team up with Supercars regulars Matt Campbell and Alex Davison in the Competition Motorsports Porsche that finished second overall in the 2017 event, as first of the Pro-Am cars.
David ‘CJ’ Calvert-Jones had a great season in the Intercontinental GT Challenge last year, finishing second in Bathurst and fifth in the Mazda Raceway California 8 Hours. It landed him fourth in the driver standings for 2017.
Supercars’ naming-rights partner Virgin Australia is among the entities backing the Porsche, and offering the public flights to and from Bathurst for the February 2-4 race.
“We are very excited to support the Bathurst 12 Hour fans on public flights within Australia to the event for the first time – it’s a great opportunity for fans to get to the circuit in comfort – and quickly,” Ann Elliot, Virgin Australia’s general manager of corporate and industry sales said.
