Supercars driver Tim Slade will return to the Bathurst 12 Hour with Objective Racing next February.
The Brad Jones Racing star will join the McElrea Racing-run squad for a third year running, teaming up with car owner Tony Walls, Supercars co-driver Warren Luff, and Carrera Cup gun Jaxon Evans in the Objective McLaren.
"It's great to be heading back to Bathurst with Tony and the Objective Racing crew," Slade said.
"Things haven't gone to plan the last couple of years and we haven't been able to get the kind of results we know we are capable of – but the car is fast and if things roll our way we know we will be competitive.
"Thanks to Tony for inviting me back. I'm really looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of those cars."
The car will run in the Pro-Am class.
It's been a tough couple of Bathurst 12 Hours for the Objective crew; in 2016 Slade, Luff, Walls and Matt Campbell lasted just 49 laps before Luff crashed out of the race. And this year Slade, Luff, Walls, and Alex Davison finished down in 20th after a hitting a number of problems through the race.
