New Tickford Racing Super 2 driver Broc Feeney will replace Jake Camilleri for this weekend’s Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 hour event.
Foundation MARC Cars driver Camilleri was set to join Nick Percat and Aaron Cameron in the teams 91 machine, however business commitments have ruled Jake out for the weekends event.
“It’s really disappointing to miss this event, especially driving with Nick and Aaron, but I’m sure Broc will do an excellent job on my place.” commented Camilleri.
The event will be second time that Feeney has competed in a MARC car, having steered the Rod Salmon owned MARC 1 machine at the GC 400 AGT event late last year. It will be the reigning Super 2 champions first time at the Mount Panorama circuit.
“I absolutely can’t wait to join the team again for my Bathurst debut, beamed an excited Feeney. It’s such a tip-of-the-hat from Ryan to get this last minute opportunity. The cars, the team the event, it’s all just mega to be a part of it.”
“It will be great to work with experienced guys like Nick and Aaron, it’s the perfect environment to make my Bathurst debut”
Team owner Ryan McLeod commented: “Broc is clearly one of the hot young talents around. It’s well in our nature to give these young guys their first Bathurst experience. Broc joins a long line of super talented drivers that have started their Bathurst journey with our team.”
With the highly regarded Tyler Everingham in the teams 92 entry, Mcleods squad now boasts two super 2 drivers, both who have won the third tier Supercars series prior to graduating to Super 2.
The Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 hour starts on track action Friday 31 January.
