Bathurst 12 Hour: Christopher Mies rejoins Mark Eddy and Marc Cini MPC Audi R8 LMS ultra

By Johan Laubscher

Christopher Mies will be back behind the wheel of the Network Clothing-Hallmarc Audi R8 LMS ultra at the 2015 Bathurst 12 Hour, alongside car owners and teammates, Mark Eddy and Marc Cini. The young German twice drove this Melbourne Performance Centre run Audi R8 LMS ultra with Eddy and Cini during 2014, at the Bathurst 12 Hour and at the Sepang 12 Hours.

The 2015 Bathurst 12 Hour driver line-up for the Eddy and Cini entry was confirmed when it was also announced that Christopher Mies will be driving the second of Steve McLaughlan's JAMEC-PEM Racing Audi R8 LMS ultra cars in the 2015 Australian GT Championship.

They will be joining a total of seven confirmed Audi race cars on the Bathurst 12 Hour grid in a few weeks time, six Audi R8 LMS ultra entries and one Audi TT RS. A seventh unannounced Audi R8 LMS ultra (another Steve McLaughlan entry) is also currently listed on the entry list, which would raise the Audi-count up to eight cars.

The 2015 Bathurst 12 Hour will be taking place from 6-8 February 2015.
