The Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 could be set for the best ever fleet of co-drivers to tackle the Mountain for the event’s 60th anniversary.
The co-driving ranks have become stronger and stronger in recent years as teams place a high priority on securing a prized second steerer to help their bid for the Peter Brock Trophy.
Last year, Craig Lowndes, Garth Tander and Michael Caruso all made the switch to focus purely on the endurance season. The year before it was James Moffat and Dale Wood.
Now, you can add 2009 title runner-up Will Davison, two-time solo race winner Tim Slade and the talented James Golding into the mix; each with plenty to prove as they strive to force their way back into a full-time drive.
And that’s not even to mention other seats taken by highly rated youngsters including Brodie Kostecki, Will Brown, Broc Feeney and Dunlop Super2 Series leader Thomas Randle.
