Doubts over Bathurst wildcard entry

PARKED UP PLUS podcast presenter Mark Fogarty reveals misgivings about Michael Anderson’s Bathurst bid.

04 July 2022

Doubts have emerged over Michael Anderson’s Repco Bathurst 1000 wildcard entry.

Anderson wants to run an ex-Dick Johnson Racing Ford Mustang in the Great Race, but his credentials are being questioned. The latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast reveals that his claim to have secured the necessary Super Licence to contest the 1000 is not clear cut.

Listen to the podcast here:

Anderson’s wildcard entry with the ex-Fabian Coulthard Mustang reportedly relies on securing a star overseas co-driver.

He maintains he is cleared for the Repco Bathurst 1000, but informed sources dispute that Motorsport Australia has approved his application for a Super Licence.

The Bathurst builder, who races in Super3 and occasionally Super2, has been linked with securing a star co-driver from IndyCar or NASCAR.

There are strong suggestions that the acceptance of his entry relies on being partnered by a big name. PARKED UP PLUS has the full story of why Anderson’s entry has raised concerns.

Also in the latest episode, news on PremiAir Racing’s mid-season driver change, and the future of the Supercars retro round and S5000. As well, Aaron Seton talks about becoming the first third generation driver in the Bathurst 1000.
