Andrew Watson has been added to Objective Racing’s driver crew for the 2019 Bathurst 12 Hour, to race its 650S GT3 in the Pro-Am class.
The 23-year-old Irishman will race alongside Tony Walls and Warren Luff, completing the team’s new-look driver-crew for the race.
Objective had initially planned to run Jaxon Evans for a second year, and Tim Slade. But Evans has since become a Porsche driver after his success in the recent Porsche Shootout, and Slade has been confirmed with HubAuto Corse for the race.
“We’ll be running myself, Luffy and Andrew Watson next year,” Walls confirmed.
“He’s run there the last few years and did a good job last year in particular. He’s driven the McLaren all year in Blancpain with Garage 59 so he knows the car well.
“Jaxon is a Porsche driver now, which is fantastic, and Tim told me a while back that he’d like to do the race with the team he races in Asia which is absolutely fine.
“We wanted to find someone experienced and Andrew has the miles in the car and at the track.
“In the end I’ll have to do a bit more work in the race (with three instead of four drivers) but I’m really happy with the plans we have for the race.”
