Sydney Porsche racer Aaron Zerefos skips Bathurst 12 Hour for Nascar Test

·

Sydney Porsche racer, Aaron Zerefos, has elected to skip this weekend’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour to pursue a NASCAR test in the United States, one month away from the 65th running of the famous Daytona 500.

While nothing has materialised in terms of a drive in the premier American category, Zerefos has scheduled a test in an Xfinity Series car in February.

“Unfortunately for me, I don’t have any prior experience in NASCAR which will make it tough to land a race seat, but I do have the opportunity to cut some laps which will give me a little more experience in those sorts of cars,” Zerefos said.

“My Bathurst 12 Hour deal fell over at the last minute because the car owner withdrew his entry, but that’s racing. I might still attend the race as a spectator, it’s always an entertaining event.

“I’ll head over to the US for the test, but I’ll come back to Australia in time for the Grand Prix and the Bathurst 6 Hour.

“As always, Fiji Water and C Coconut Water will support my racing program this year, and we look forward to announcing more news soon.”
