WILL DAVISON TO DRIVE F1 CAR AT BATHURST

Will Davison is set to drive the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix Swisse Two-Seater at the Bathurst 1000 this October, taking V8 Supercars commentator Mark Beretta for a hot lap.

Davison will be the first person to lap Mount Panorama in the Minardi F1 car for the weekend on Thursday, October 10, before handing the reins back to regular driver Zsolt Baumgartner.

The Swisse Two-Seater will be at Bathurst as part of a collaboration between V8 Supercars and the Australian Grand Prix Corporation where lucky fans could receive the ride of a lifetime around the iconic circuit.

The opportunity to get behind the wheel of the F1 car will be a thrill for Davison, who knocked on the door of the prestigious category early on in his career.

“What an awesome opportunity – to combine two of the biggest milestones of my motor racing career into one experience, driving a Formula One car again and doing it at Bathurst,” Davison said.

“I tested for Minardi some years ago when I was racing in Europe and it remains a career highlight for me, right up there with winning the Bathurst 1000 in 2009.

“When V8 Supercars and the AGPC announced that the Swisse Two-Seater was going to be at Bathurst this year, I was really excited and then absolutely delighted to have the chance to drive it. To take Beretts (Mark Beretta) on a lap of Bathurst neither of us will ever forget, it’s going to be enormous fun.”
