Every driver racing in the 2023 Bathurst 12 Hour
The full entry list for the 2023 Bathurst 12 Hour, including 84 drivers from around the world, has been unveiled.
The opening round of the Intercontinental GT Challenge has drawn a star-studded field as Pro line-ups return for the first time since 2020.
There are factory-backed entries from Audi, Mercedes, BMW and Porsche with all four manufacturers sending works drivers down under.
Audi's pro car will be raced by Christopher Haase, Patrick Niederhauser and Mattia Drudi while it will also send the likes of Chris Mies, Ricardo Feller and Frederic Vervisch down under to assist in Pro-Am entries.
There is a number of Mercedes stars headed to Mount Panorama as well, with Craft-Bamboo set to field a Pro car for Daniel Juncadella and Nicky Catsburg. Lucas Auer is also entered in that car, however his crash in Daytona and subsequent injury throws that into doubt.
GruppeM will also field a Pro Mercedes for Maro Engel, Mikael Grenier and Raffaele Marciello, while Triple Eight has a Pro car for Shane van Gisbergen, Broc Feeney and Maximilian Gotz.
Reigning Bathurst 12 Hour winners Kenny Habul, Jules Gounon and Luca Stolz will return in the SunEnergy1 Mercedes.
Porsche has a single Pro car in the field that will be run by Manthey EMA and driven by Matt Campbell, Mathieu Jaminet and Thomas Preining.
The biggest drawcard from the driver pool, however, comes from BMW, which will run MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi in one of two Pro entries from Team WRT.
Rossi will be paired with Maxime Martin and Augusto Farfus while Sheldon van der Linde, Dries Vanthoor and Charles Weerts will team up in the other M4.
As well as the GT firepower in the field there is plenty of local star power including a host of Supercars drivers.
David Reynolds will share a Pro-Am Mercedes with Jordan Love and Tony Bates, while James Golding will race an Audi run by his Supercars team PremiAir Racing with Brad Schumacher and Vervisch.
Chaz Mostert returns to the Audi fold alongside Fraser Ross and Liam Talbot, while Jamie Whincup and Richie Stanaway will race a second T8 Mercedes with Prince Jefri Ibrahim.
Bathurst legend Craig Lowndes, meanwhile, will team up with Alex Davison, Geoff Emery and Scott Taylor in a Mercedes that will be raising funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia.
