October’s Repco Bathurst 1000 will mark another key career moment for teenage ace Broc Feeney.
The 18-year-old was announced Wednesday to partner two-time Great Race winner Russell Ingall in a Supercheap Auto-backed, Triple Eight-prepared wildcard entry.
Feeney announced himself to the main game last October as he combined with James Courtney and Tickford Racing to record a top 10 finish.

In 2021, he made the move to powerhouse squad Triple Eight for another assault on the Super2 series, and commenced his campaign with victory in Race 1.
A post-race penalty after the second race cast a minor pall over his weekend, but Feeney left the mountain well and truly as a title favourite.
"Russell is a legend in the business,” said Feeney, who will return behind the wheel of his #888 Super2 entry at Winton next month.
"Having the chance to race with a Supercars and Bathurst champion is an exciting prospect and will certainly help to boost my racing career."

Critically, October’s Great Race will see Feeney and Ingall have chances to set some remarkable records.
Ingall, who turned 57 in February, could become the oldest winner of the Bathurst 1000.
Kiwi legend Jim Richards is the current custodian of that record, having won the 2002 race alongside Mark Skaife at age 55.
Feeney, who turned 18 on race day last year, could become the youngest winner of the race.

Back in 2003, Rick Kelly was 20 when he combined to win alongside Greg Murphy.
The Repco Bathurst 1000 will run across October 7-10.
The 2021 Dunlop Super2 Series will continue at Winton across May 29-30.
