Competition Motorsports Reveals Bathurst Line-Up

Long, Campbell, Davison and Calvert-Jones

Supercars regulars Matt Campbell and Alex Davison will team up in the Competition Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 R for the Bathurst 12 Hour in next February’s American Porsche ace Patrick Long and car owner David Calvert-Jones.

Davison is the newcomer to the line-up that finished second to the Jamie Whincup/Craig Lowndes/Toni Vilander Ferrari and won the APA class for teams in 2017.

That was the start of a year for Campbell that included success in Porsche’s one-make Supercup class on the Formula 1 bill and a Supercars PIRTEK Enduro Cup campaign with Shane van Gisbergen and the Red Bull Holden Racing Team.

While Campbell’s 2018 Porsche program in GT racing precludes a full Enduro Cup return, he is likely to race Triple Eight’s wildcard V6 twin-turbo entry at Bathurst.

In addition to his Carrera Cup Australia program, Davison made seven Supercars starts with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, with solo outings at Queensland Raceway and Sydney Motorsport Park leading into the enduros.
