Supercars champion Shane van Gisbergen is optimistic about teaming up with Brock Finney and Prince Jeffrey Ibrahim for good results in this year’s Bathurst 12 Hour.

Former 12-hour winner Vanguisbergen is excited to return to Bassert to see what they can do.

In a normal week, Vangisbergen shares a garage with Finney. However, he also shares the Triple Eight Race Engineering Mercedes-AMG and is competing in the GT World Challenge Australia with Prince.

Prince Jeffrey Ibrahim is a member of the Johor royal family in Malaysia and has been racing GT cars in Triple Eight for many years.

Wangisbergen is impressed with the dedication and effort the prince has put into his motor racing and seems confident that it will pay off.

“I’m excited about Prince Jeffrey,” Vangisbergen said after winning Perth on Sunday.

“He has been working really hard for the last few years. The effort he has put into his training.

“This is his first endurance race. He did some tests in Sepang last week.

“It will be a pretty proud moment to see him race in such a big race. Being his co-driver, you can see how we go. I’m very happy. “

This year’s Bathurst 12 Hour is unique, with a complete race victory being fought among professional amateur teams.

May is the latest in Bathurst 12 Hour in the history of the event. This means more nighttime running. SVG has already admitted that Finney is in charge of the stint.

“It starts early, Brock has young eyes, so he’s heading to the start, that’s good,” laughed Vanguisbergen. “I did everything I could to get out of getting up early.

“It should be great. I love the race.

“It will be interesting in the middle of this year. The 6 hours of Bassast was quite cloudy until 9 o’clock, so please pray for 12 hours of fog.
