Entries for the 2024 Bathurst 12 Hour continue to come in, with Volante Rosso Motorsport joining Valmont Racing in entering in next year's race.

Next year’s Bathurst 12 Hour will be held on February 16-18 as part of the all-new Bathurst SuperFest.

Volante Rosso Motorsport has secured an entry in each in the Pro-AM and Silver/Bronze classes. The Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia front runners will race a pair Mercedes-AMG GT3s, and will reveal its driver roster in due course.

Volante Rosso’s 2023 has has included multiple pole positions, a race win and regular podiums for Jayden Ojeda and Ross Poulakis in GT World Challenge Australia.

Ojeda has since been selected for this weekend's Mercedes Young Driver Test at Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain.

It comes after Valmont Racing confirmed its entry to the 2024 race for Marcel Zalloua and Sergio Pires.

“With our entries confirmed, I met with [fellow team owner] Chris Papadopoulos last week to really begin zoning in on our driving team as the program takes shape,” said Josh Hunt, Volante Rosso Motorsport’s Motorsport Director.

“There are many Australian and international drivers that would be suitable for Volante Rosso Motorsport’s 12 Hour team across the entries in both classes.

“We’ve had a tremendous year in 2023 GT including a podium at the Bathurst 12 Hour and race wins in Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia — along with the Radical Cup Australia — taking out that Championship, so it has been a year of great progression for our team.

“Our engineering team has been able to get a really great handle on the Mercedes-AMG GT3 in 2023, and the Pirelli DHF Tyre compound.

"Our crew at Volante Rosso Motorsport have left no stones unturned to extract more from the cars and how we can unlock the maximum performance from them, and consistently. 

“Our commitment to 2024 starts with being one of the early entries into the Bathurst 12 Hour as the event approaches its 100 day countdown.”
