JORDAN LOVE TO MAKE GT3 DEBUT AT BATHURST 12 HOUR
Jordan Love will join David Reynolds and Tony Bates in a Mercedes-AMG GT3 at the 2023 Bathurst 12 Hour.
Mercedes AMG driver Jordan Love will join Reynolds and Bates to form a Pro-Am entry in a Mercedes-AMG run by Volante Rosso Motorsport for the Intercontinental GT Challenge opener at the legendary Mount Panorama Circuit.
Jordan has previous experience around the Mount Panorama Circuit and has also enjoyed success there on multiple occasions. At the end of 2022, Jordan took a podium finish at the Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS endurance event at Mount Panorama Circuit. In 2019, during his championship-winning campaign in Porsche Payce Carrera Cup, Jordan achieved three wins, two pole positions, and the fastest lap in a dominant performance. A year earlier in 2018, Jordan claimed three podiums and a race win; and in 2017 finished in third place at the Bathurst 12 Hour in the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race.
“I got a teaser at the end of last year in the three-hour so I’m pretty pumped to be heading there,” said Love. “To have the 12 Hour back at the start of the year where it belongs and with a strong field is going to be great. To be teaming up with Batesy and Reynolds means we’ve not only got a strong line-up but will have a good time doing it too. I’m super pumped. The car was mega at the three-hour and I got along with everyone at the team really well. They’re a great bunch of guys and I’m super keen to be back with them for a second race at the big one.”
