Be interested to see who gets a seat and in which car. I've heard there was some handy steerers who put their hands up for a drive

Daytona sportscars announce driver line up for their two car assault on the 2018 Bathurst 12 hour.

With the decision made to run two cars in the 2018 Bathurst 12 hour, Richard Bendell, owner of Daytona sportscars realised that we needed some new drivers to take the team forward. The team decided to sponsor 2/3 of the cost of the event for each driver to ensure that we could attract the very best drivers to the team, without money holding quality drivers back.
As soon as entries opened for the drive, Daytona sportscars were inundated with driver resumes from all over the country, and overseas for this opportunity. The difficult task of selecting the drivers came down to a final drive off at Phillip Island.

All of the drivers at the test day did a fantastic job, showing the amount of driving talent available if the opportunity is right. Unfortunately for some of the drivers, we couldn’t take them all, even though everyone tested would have been capable of racing in the 12 hour.
Finally, we have been able to confirm all of the drivers and announce the following driver line ups.

Dodge Viper:
• Ben Schoots
• Adam Macrow
• Michael Caine
Daytona Coupe:
• Jamie Augustine
• Dylan Thomas
• Rhys Howell

Each of the drivers have shown considerable skills in their areas of motorsport and are most deserving of the drive. This exciting team of racers is looking forward to a successful 12 hour and are aiming for a 1-2 in Class I in 2018.


Car specifications:
Dodge Viper:
• Engine Type: V10
• Capacity: 8.4l
• Top Speed: 291km/h (rpm limited)
• Engine rev limit: 6200
• Fastest lap time: 2:09.7 (event limited)
• Horsepower: 730hp @ 6000rpm
• Weight: 1400kg

Daytona Coupe:
• Engine Type: V8
• Capacity: 7.0l
• Top Speed: 306km/h
• Engine rev limit: 6800
• Fastest lap time: 2:10.8 (event limited)
• Horsepower: 720hp @ 6700rpm
• Weight: 1250kg

Macrow is a gun, I look forward to seeing you guys tackle the mountain. Are the cars maintaining the blue and white liveries? (asking as a photographer)

Photographer for hire.

yes, the cars are going to both be white and blue as the team look.

Macrow is an awesome driver, we had him in the car when I worked at Ford Performance Racing many years ago. It was a real shame that he didnt get the full time steer when the opportunity came around, but sometimes it just works out that way.

We are so pleased to have him and I think it is a really strong team with him.

I'm pretty sure I went to school with Dylan back in '91/'92! Same school and same vintage according to Facebook. I had no idea he was a racer.

Great to see him with the Daytona guys too.

Congrats Jamie you've got two good lineups there can't wait to hear the Daytona rumbling around the Mountain again and also the Viper, I was going through my photos from this years race and it was a nice reminder of how good it is to have a Viper in the race. Beautiful cars.

Good luck with the prep

yes, we are happy with the line up. Adam is a really great addition, such great endurance race experience.

The other guys all tested well, so fingers crossed for the event that they will be able to perform just as well at the event.

We have our final test day on the 18th of Jan at the open pit lane test at phillip island.

We'll need to get the money in a little earlier than first thought, so if you can let me know on here or by PM by early January it would be much appreciated.
