Warwick driver wins Bathurst

Warwick's Matt Campbell and his team celebrate after Bathurst win.

Queenslander Matt Campbell has etched his name into history as a two-time winner of the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour.

Campbell, along with teammates Laurens Vanthoor (Belgium) and Ayhancan Güven (Turkey) brought home the win for the #912 Porsche, with Manthey EMA delivering victory despite a penalty and compromised strategy.

Campbell denied defending Champion Jules Gounon a record fourth straight win after a Safety Car restart late in the race.

The 29-year-old Campbell from Warwick — who won the Rolex 24 at Daytona two weeks ago — raced to victory with Laurens Vanthoor and Ayhancan Güven, who claimed their first wins in the race.

“Feels awesome, obviously second win, tough day, the weather, everything like that,” Campbell said.

“We were always running at the front and it wasn’t easy with the mixed conditions, thanks to Larry [Laurens] and Ayhancan, they did a fantastic job.

“We kept it off the walls and it was phenomenal. Second win, it’s unreal.”
