Sandown 500 winner Cameron Waters will make his Bathurst 12 Hour debut in February, driving a Mercedes for Strakka Racing.

Waters will partner with Strakka regulars Nick Leventis, Lewis Williamson and David Fumanelli in one of two AMG GT3s fielded by the British squad.

Strakka is currently in the process of learning its Mercedes equipment, as it makes the switch from McLaren over the off-season.

Waters is one of several Supercars stars expected to be named for the 12 Hour in the lead-up to the February 2-4 race.

“I’m really excited about doing the 2018 Bathurst 12 Hour with Strakka Racing,” said Waters.

“It is a top-level team and I think we have a genuine shot at winning it. 

“It’s also a race that I have always wanted to do and I can’t thank them enough for the opportunity.”

Strakka racing director Jay Davenport said he’s hoping his squad will benefit from Waters’ Bathurst experience on the team’s first trip to the Mountain.

“It’s great to have Cameron with us for our Mercedes-AMG debut,” he said.

“Cameron recently secured his first Supercars victory and he is keen to share his knowledge of the Mountain, a track that’s new to Strakka.

“We know having Nick, Lewis and David in the same car worked well last season.

“Together with Cameron, this entry has a strong and competitive line up.”
