Fresh from his thrilling win at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, Will Davison now has his sights set on another trophy – the Pirtek Enduro Cup. 

 Davison declared his win at Mount Panorama one of the greatest moments in his career.

“Now looking back with the enormity and the pressure involved yeah adding in the fuel aspect defending and the biggest race of the year, when you put all three together it probably was one of my greatest moments,” Davison told Supercars.com.

“I don’t think I could have done anymore."

The Bathurst win gives the TEKNO Autosports pair of Davison and Jonathan Webb a six-point lead in the 2016 Pirtek Enduro Cup, ahead of Red Bull Racing’s Shane Van Gisbergen and Alex Premat.

The two-time Bathurst champion said he will go out guns blazing next week at the Castrol Gold Coast 600 and do what he can to get his #19 Holden Commodore over the line first.

“It’s something I’ve never won before…it would be a very special one to win,” Davison told Supercars.com.

“It’s a huge team effort endurance races and I love the endurance races because it’s about everyone and it’d be a huge result. For a little team it’d be a massive achievement.

The Pirtek Enduro Cup will be decided at the Castrol Gold Coast 600, October 21-23.

Despite Davison’s self-confidence for the Gold Coast 600, he emphasised this year’s competition in the category is intense. 

“I take confidence I know the car should be pretty strong around here but year to year everything changes; the oppositions are incredible at the moment and everyone is continually upping their game,” Davison said.

“I think we have a good opportunity to be strong here for sure.”
