Penrite Racing has finalised its driver line-up for the forthcoming Repco Bathurst 1000.

The team officially announced its line-up two days before to the Penrite Oil Sandown SuperSprint.

Matt Campbell and Matt Payne were locked in as the team’s drivers earlier this year.

Back in May, Stephen Grove announced Payne alongside David Reynolds, and Campbell with Lee Holdsworth.

A late change sees Porsche factory ace Campbell paired with Reynolds, with Payne joining Holdsworth.

Campbell was recently named in Porsche Penske Motorsport’s prototype sportscar programme.

The Queenslander raced for the Ford team with Andre Heimgartner last year.

Payne is also set to drive for the team next year

Campbell won the 2019 Bathurst 12 Hour, and is the 2016 Porsche Carrera Cup champion.

"I’m very excited to be co-driving with Dave this year for Penrite Racing,” Campbell said.

"He has won the race before and is always quick at Mount Panorama.

"I just want to help put him in the best position possible to be at the pointy end late in the race and pay back the Groves for this opportunity.

"Winning the 12 Hour was a real highlight but winning the 1000 is something I’d really love to achieve in my career."

Super2 driver Payne will make his Bathurst debut alongside reigning winner Holdsworth.

The Kiwi will resume his Dunlop Series campaign at Sandown this weekend.

Payne will steer Holdsworth’s #10 Penrite Racing Mustang in Friday’s Additional Driver session.

"Racing in the Bathurst 1000 has been a dream of mine since I started racing karts in New Zealand,” Payne said.

"It will be a big weekend doubling up with Super2 as well.

"I look forward to doing the best I can and working with Lee to do a solid job for Penrite Racing."
