Triple Eight has fielded just the one car in the Australian competition until now, but ran two in the already completed GT World Challenge Asia season this year, with an Ibrahim brother in each.
“With our racing in Asia wrapped up for the year, we've turned our attention fully to the remaining rounds of GT World Challenge Australia and that means running two cars under the Triple Eight-JMR flag,” said Andrew Simpson, who runs the outfit's GT programme.
“Prince Abu Bakar has done a stellar job in his first full season of racing and we're looking to capitalise on that momentum. He's in very good company with Jamie Whincup as his co-driver, so it will be a good opportunity for him to learn.
“Prince Jefri is returning to Australia after sealing the Pro-Am title in Japan, so he should have plenty of confidence coming into the weekend and it's a track he knows fairly well.
“He and Broc took a couple of podiums at The Bend last year and they've got a good chance of going a spot or two better this weekend.”
