The Grove's will continue their endurance campaign in 2023 as they make a return to the highly anticipated Liqui-Moli Bathurst 12 Hour, from the 3rd to the 5th of February 2023.
The duo will be joined by Grove sponsored driver, Anton de Pasquale, as they share driving duties of their Porsche GT3 R in the Pro-Am class. de Pasquale will also join the pair, alongside Earl Bamber in the Hankook Dubai 24 Hour.
Competing among those considered to be some of the world's best endurance racers, the trio will make for a powerful line-up, with Stephen and Brenton having entered the Bathurst 12 Hour event back in 2014 and every edition of the endurance race since. Anton de Pasquale will take on his third Bathurst 12 Hour; the 27-year-old being no stranger to the world of endurance racing.
Stephen Grove said: "We love racing the 12 Hour, it's a demanding race and you need to have the best team behind you. Bathurst is one of those tracks you do
whatever you can to race at and the 12 Hour is one of the best races of the calendar. To do the race with a strong crew is exciting. We’re bringing together our Supercar and GT team as well as EBM so I think we should be covered!"
"Anton's an exceptionally fast driver with a strong endurance background so we believe we have a solid line-up to bring home some great results.
Brenton Grove said: "We’ve tried to focus more and more on endurance racing in recent times and that’s one of the most exciting parts about the event. Coming off Dubai we should be quite well prepared to take on the field at Bathurst. It’s an incredibly competitive race so we need to make sure we’re on the front foot!"
"It will be a challenging race, however, we’re extremely excited for it and having Anton with us, with his experience in endurance will be another advantage that we hope to turn into a victory."
