Two-time Supercars champion Marcos Ambrose will contest the 2022 Bathurst 6 Hour.
Ambrose and George Miedecke will drive a Ford Mustang GT prepared by Garry Rogers Motorsport in the production car race on April 15 to 17.
Ambrose currently works as Garry Rogers Motorsport’s competition director, heading up their young driver program and working with the team’s rising stars across their TCR Australia, S5000 and TransAm stables.
The Bathurst 6 Hour represents a one-off racing return for the Supercars champion, with no plans for future races beyond the Easter long weekend.
“I go back a long way with the Miedecke family, George came and raced in the (NASCAR) Late Model program with us while I was racing NASCAR, and I know Andrew from way back too,” said Ambrose.
“I was proud to say yes, I’ll come and celebrate the past with them at Bathurst.
“We’ve built this new Mustang and we’re really excited to get it on the track. The 6 Hour will be afun race to do and to get back behind the wheel will be celebrating not only the car build, but my long relationship with the Miedecke’s.
“George is a fantastic person. He really came close to making it in the ‘states – he’s a pro driver who never quite made that last jump.
“We’re (Garry Rogers Motorsport) part of the car build, I’ve been part of the project throughout the build and hopefully we’re going to be a contender.
“It’s not a comeback – it’s a celebration, to be with George and Andrew and the Miedecke group and I’m looking forward to it.”
