STRAKKA CONFIRMS SUPERCAR V8 STAR CAMERON WATERS FOR BATHURST 12 HOURS

Strakka Racing’s line up for its inaugural visit to Bathurst next February will see the team benefit from local experience of the Mount Panorama circuit after signing Supercar V8 front-runner Cameron Waters. Waters, a winner in the Australian touring car category, will partner Strakka regulars Nick Leventis, Lewis Williamson and David Fumanelli. The second car line-up will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

“I’m really excited about doing the 2018 Bathurst 12hr with Strakka Racing,” says Waters. “It is a top-level team and I think we have a genuine shot at winning it. It’s also a race that I have always wanted to do and I can’t thank them enough for the opportunity.”

“It’s great to have Cameron with us for our Mercedes-AMG debut,” says racing director Jay Davenport. “Cameron recently secured his first Supercars victory and he is keen to share his knowledge of The Mountain, a track that’s new to Strakka. We know having Nick, Lewis and David in the same car worked well last season. Together with Cameron, this entry has a strong and competitive line up.”

To date Strakka has run the first of its AMG GT3 chassis at Barcelona and Silverstone, getting the chance to complete over 130 laps in both wet and dry conditions. “The car has been perfect, it ran straight out of the box and both Lewis and Nick who have tested the car have both said it feels responsive and well-balanced,” concludes Davenport. “Bathurst is a competitive event and it has its own rules and regulations, so we aren’t expecting it to be easy but that said, with the quality we have in the driver line-ups and with known reliability of the Mercedes-AMG cars, we are sure we have a chance to fight at the front.”
