Alex Davison's chances of being renewed as a Shell V-Power Racing Team co-driver have seemingly risen after the 42-year-old took part in the ongoing Repco Supercars Championship pre-season test at Queensland Raceway.
The duo combined for 10th place on that occasion, and could well find themselves joining forces in the Great Race for the sixth time come October this year.
A Dick Johnson Racing spokesperson declined to confirm whether Alex Davison's on-track appearance reflected a co-drive deal being done.
It should be noted though that other potential 2022 co-drivers including Triple Eight Race Engineering's Jamie Whincup are not driving today.
Walkinshaw Andretti United enduro stalwart Warren Luff is also at QR today, but by virtue of his connections with Porsche Paynter Dixon Carrera Cup Australia team McElrea Racing.
Davison was a late call-up to DJR's Bathurst 1000 roster last year, once it was confirmed three-time champion Scott McLaughlin would not be able to return from the United States to tackle The Mountain.
Tony D'Alberto co-drove the team's sister #11 entry led by Anton De Pasquale.
DJR, like many teams, has not made any announcements regarding 2022 co-drivers.
Dale Wood (Brad Jones Racing) and Michael Caruso (Team 18) should both be locked in given they joined their respective teams last season on two-year deals.
Beyond that, only Grove Racing has signalled its intentions to field Matt Campbell and rookie Matt Payne.
