Greg Murphy to make Bathurst comeback.
Greg Murphy is popping out of retirement to drive in October’s Bathurst 1000.
The four-time winner will drive an Erebus Motorsport wildcard entry alongside Kiwi compatriot Richie Stanaway.
Murphy’s comeback comes seven years after retiring from racing and marks his twenty third Bathurst 1000 begin, scoring wins in 1996, 1999, 2003 and 2004, though his most well-known Bathurst second was his Lap of the Gods qualifying effort in ’03.
In the meantime, will probably be a fifth begin for one-time race winner Stanaway after hanging up his helmet two years in the past.
“Rapidly here is a bunch of people who find themselves wanting and keen to make this occur,” Murphy stated.
“I am very lucky and fortunate to be offered with the chance to return and race at a spot meaning a lot to me.”
Murphy and Stanaway will run Murphy’s iconic #51, a quantity he carried full time from 2001 – 2012.
