PremiAir Racing will pair rookie Cameron Hill with Chris Pither in the #22 Coca-Cola Racing Holden ZB Commodore at the 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000.
Hill will make his Supercars debut in the Great Race, following in the footsteps of Dunlop Super2 Series teammate Declan Fraser who will team with Craig Lowndes in Triple Eight Race Engineering’s wildcard entry.
The 25-year-old Hill currently races for Triple Eight Race Engineering in the Dunlop Super2 Series, sitting in second place in championship standings. He is the reigning Porsche Carrera Cup Australia champion and winner of the Bathurst 6 Hour this year.
“This will be my first main-game race, and what better way to make my debut,” said Hill.
“While it may be my first time at Bathurst in a Supercar, I’ve got plenty of laps under my belt, having recently won the Bathurst 6 Hour after starting 60th due to a technical infringement. I’ve also raced in the Bathurst 12 Hour, in Carrera Cup, and the Toyota 86 Racing Series.”
“For me, this is going to be an incredible experience, and I’m looking forward to being on the Mountain. Hopefully, between Chris and I we can achieve a great result.”
Pither said he was looking forward to sharing the PremiAir Coca-Cola Racing entry, which is a Triple Eight Race Engineering customer car, with the up-and-coming Hill.
“It’s very hard to get your first opportunity in the Supercars championship,” said Pither.
“Cam’s been going well in Super2 this year, so he deserves the opportunity. Racing in the Bathurst 1000 for the first time is a special experience, I look forward to sharing with him. I know he’ll do a great job.”
