Bathurst pairings confirmed.


With the opening practice sessions now in the books ahead of Sunday's Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama, the various competing teams have finalised their driving line-ups for the blue riband event.

As expected, there are few differences, either to the expected or previously announced pairings, with L&H 500 winners Garth Tander and Mark Skaife continuing in the #1 Toll Holden Racing Team entry, and reigning Bathurst champions Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup in tandem at TeamVodafone.

V8 Supercar title contender Mark Winterbottom will share the #6 Ford Performance Racing Falcon with regular team-mate Steven Richards, while lap record holder Greg Murphy will be hoping for big things after pairing with Sprint Gas Racing partner Jason Richards.

Among the unfamiliar combinations, BTCC champion Fabrizio Giovanardi teams with Briton Marc Hynes in the second Vodafone entry, while former BTCC champ Matt Neal joins American all-rounder Boris Said at Supercheap Auto Racing. Alex Davison, brother of frontrunner Will, partners Fabian Coulthard at Glenfords Racing and 'young guns' Michael Patrizi Karl Reindler will share the #777 Ausdrill Ford Rising Stars Racing entry.

The full line-up is as follows, although the PWR Holden and Team Kiwi Ford have both been sidelined following the collision between Paul Weel and Chris Pither in Friday practice.
