59Racing will boast an international trio of drivers in the team's Silver Class McLaren 720S GT3 at this year's Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.
Sharing the NXTZEN backed car will be accomplished GT racers Fraser Ross (Australia), Dominic Storey (New Zealand), and Martin Kodric (Croatia).
For Bathurst, it has opted for three experienced race winners in its quest for victory in the Silver class.
Having competed in Europe during his formative years, Dominic Storey claimed the 2017 Australian Endurance Championship. This year's event will mark the New Zealander's first race outing with 59Racing after joining the team in November at Mount Panorama for Challenge Bathurst.
Completing the line-up is Martin Kodric, who won the Blancpain GT Series Asia in 2018 after graduating from a junior career spent in single-seaters. The Croatian driver spent 2019 campaigning a McLaren 720S GT3 in the International GT Open series in Europe.
A seasoned competitor in Australian GT, Fraser Ross recorded the McLaren 720S GT3's first global win after taking victory during the opening round of the 2019 Australian GT Championship. Ross was also a winner on the streets of Surfers Paradise in 2019, having previously tasted success aboard a McLaren 650S GT3 after stepping out of one-make and historic racing.
"The Bathurst 12 Hour is a highlight of the motorsport calendar and I can't wait to get up there with the McLaren 720S GT3. The team at 59Racing showed all through last year that they are among the best in the business, and I think with the driving combination we have we're in with a real shot of a good result. Having raced against Dom before I know how good he is, and I'm looking forward to racing alongside him. It's also great to have Martin joining us and his wealth of experience and pace is going to be a great addition to the team."
