Aaron Zerefos jets into Sydney for Bathurst 6 hour

·

Fresh from sampling a NASCAR in Texas, Porsche racer Aaron Zerefos has confirmed his place on the grid for Bathurst’s lesser-known Great Race, Easter’s Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour.

The 6 Hour is the hallmark endurance race on the Shannons SpeedSeries calendar, which harks back to the golden era of touring car racing downunder.

The six-hour race isn’t filled with sports cars or purpose-built race cars. Instead, its focus is on the grass roots of Aussie motor racing with a grid of more than 60 production cars.

Zerefos, who resides between Los Angeles and Sydney, said he is looking for to joining On Track Motorsport, where he will share a BMW 130i with John Fitzgerald and Peter Johnston.

“It should be a fun weekend, I’m looking forward to jumping in the Bimmer,” Zerefos said.

“It’s a good package for endurance racing because it’s consistent and reliable, and I’m excited to be teaming up with John and Peter.

“Milk Lab will be supporting the #47 entry – the racing world is so commercial these days, so it makes sense for me to promote a brand that I sell. It will be good to have some oat lattes before the race and aim for the podium again – hopefully we can go a couple of spots better than our third in class last year.

“I am looking forward to seeing what the Mountain has in store for us this year, you just never know,” Zerefos concluded.

The Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will be shown live and ad-free on Stan Sport.
