The recent confirmation that international Porsche ace Jaxon Evans will join Jack Smith at Brad Jones Racing locked in the field for the 2022 running of the Bathurst 1000.

With the 25 regular entries joined by wildcards from Triple Eight, Erebus Motorsport and Matt Chahda Motorsport, a total of 28 cars and 56 drivers will tackle the biggest test in Aussie motorsport.

Out of the 2022 line-up just seven entries will be entirely unchanged from last year.

Dick Johnson Racing, Blanchard Racing Team and Erebus Motorsport are the only teams to have complete consistency across its primary entries this year.

Triple Eight will field one unchanged line-up, Garth Tander continuing with Shane van Gisbergen, while Jamie Whincup joins rookie Broc Feeney and Craig Lowndes moves into the T8 wildcard with Declan Fraser.

Team 18 has one unchanged line-up in Mark Winterbottom and Michael Caruso and did plan to have a second before James Golding left the team to take up a full-time ride with PremiAir Racing.

Golding's place alongside Scott Pye was taken by Super2 front-runner Tyler Everingham.

Tickford Racing also has one unchanged line-up in Cam Waters and James Moffat, while it is fielding two drivers who raced together last year in Jake Kostecki and Kurt Kostecki. However in 2021 the brothers drove for Matt Stone Racing before Jake's off-season move to Campbellfield.

In terms of co-driver consistency, Zak Best continues with Tickford Racing but has been moved to the Tom Randle entry, while Zane Goddard joins the Ford team as James Courtney's partner.

Warren Luff will continue his long-standing relationship with Walkinshaw Andretti United, this year partnering Nick Percat, while Fabian Coulthard has been drafted into the WAU line-up alongside reigning winner Chaz Mostert.

Dale Wood and Dean Fiore have been retained by Brad Jones Racing and will partner Andre Heimgartner and Bryce Fullwood respectively, while Jordan Boys returns to the Albury squad to partner Macauley Jones after missing out on a Bathurst seat last year.

Matt Campbell returns to Grove Racing where he will partner David Reynolds, while Lee Holdsworth, who won the Great Race with Mostert last year, will be paired with Matt Payne.

Matt Stone Racing has recalled Jayden Ojeda, who this year will partner Todd Hazelwood, while the team will also hand Aaron Seton his Bathurst debut alongside Jack Le Brocq.

PremiAir Racing has re-signed Dylan O'Keeffe, who drove for the team as Team Sydney last year, to partner Golding, with rookie Cameron Hill completing the line-up alongside Chris Pither.

The wildcards will be driven by Lowndes/Fraser, Greg Murphy and Richie Stanaway (Erebus) and Matt Chahda and Jay Robotham (MCM).

There are six Bathurst 1000 rookies in the field – Evans, Payne, Seton, Chahda, Robotham and Fraser.

Why replacing Supercars' GOAT with a teenager is worth the risk for T8

On the face of it, picking an 18-year-old rookie to replace arguably the greatest Supercars driver of all time is a risky move. But as Jamie Whincup takes up a team principal role and hands his car to Broc Feeney, it's one that he is confident will be rewarded in the fullness of time - time which wasn't afforded to Whincup in his early days
