Webber to race Porsche at Bathurst

Mark Webber to race a Porsche at Bathurst in 2015

It’s news to make most motorsport nuts lightheaded: Mark Webber could race a Porsche at the 2015 Bathurst 12 Hour.

And if Webber alone isn’t enough of a drawcard, he’s planning to share the car with movie megastar Eric Bana.

Webber confirmed his plans on his official Twitter this morning, responding to incorrect rumours the drive would take place at next year’s event:

Mark Webber @AussieGrit “@harrytuckerr: @harrytuckerr: Holy crap, @AussieGrit and @EricBana67 racing a Porsche together at the @Bathurst12hour next year!” No 2015.

Interestingly the drive is unlikely to be in a factory backed Porsche, with Porsche Cars Australia revealing it currently has no plans to prepare a car.

That could change by 2015, or the drive could fall through altogether.

Fingers crossed it doesn’t…
