Exciting news coming from Down Under and Rod Salmon. The team added Jason Bright for their effort in New Zealand at the brand new Highlands Motorsport Park.

The race is a 101-lap endurance event and is a non championship event combining Australian GT regulars and local teams. The #6 Audi R8 LMS ultra will have a three-driver lineup, Jason Bright joined by car owner Rod Salmon and Liam Talbot. The car will be supported by the talented team from Melbourne Performance Centre. A very healthy grid is expected with many V8 Supercars stars joining the field such us Fabian Coulthard, Greg Murphy and Dean Canto.

Highlands Motorsport Park will also host the season finale of the 2013 Australian GT Championship the same weekend. Only Rod Salmon and Liam Talbot will drive the "Orange" R8 LMS ultra in the two 40-minute races.
