New Zealanders Chris Holdt and Alan Turner will team with Sydneysider Ross Donaldson in a bid to win the Compact Class (Class E) in this weekend’s six-hour classic.

The pair of Queenslanders have long had the ambition of contesting a Bathurst enduro with the stars aligning for both this year.

“Lea Medhurst and I are driving a BMW 130i, we are a couple of production car racing tragics,” Medhurst said.
