Formula 1 driver turned commentator Martin Brundle has declared his intention to race at Mount Panorama, Bathurst.
The 60-year-old Brit started in 158 F1 Grand Prix between 1984 and 1996, but is best known as the modern day voice of Formula 1.
Although long retired from regular driving, Brundle made a return to racing in 2019, with a one-off appearance at the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife circuit.
He shared an Aston Martin GT4 with son Alex in a VLN series race, finishing second in class.
Having ticked off his life-long goal of tackling the Nordschleife, Brundle is keen on a start in the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.
“We’d love to go to Bathurst,” said Brundle when asked by Supercars.com about the Australian venue.
“I did the old Nurburgring last year, had a race there with my son.
“That was to tick a big box, I had never raced there before and I would like to do Bathurst in a GT.
“I need to go back in the gym a bit but that looks great.
“It looks a bit scary in places but if I go to my grave having not raced at Bathurst, it would be a shame.”
More trophies for the Brundle cabinet. P2 this time, unlucky with a puncture. Pleased to say that I’m really disappointed not to win the class and a top 15 result at the Nordschleife. Gutted in fact. Which is a victory in itself. 🤔 pic.twitter.com/gDfRSZrYBh
