PremiAir Racing is pleased to announce that Cameron Hill will join Chris Pither in the #22 PremiAir Coca-Cola Racing Supercar at the 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000.
The promising 25-year-old is well positioned to make an impressive debut with plenty of racing experience behind him. He is the reigning Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Champion and the winner of the Bathurst 6 Hour this year. Hill is also the 2015 Australian Formula Ford Series winner, runner-up in the 2017 Toyota 86 Racing Series, finishing third in the inaugural series in 2016.
Currently competing in the Dunlop Super2 Series with Triple Eight Race Engineering, Hill sits second in the point score heading into the Sandown round.
“This will be my first main game race, and what better way to make my debut.”
“While it may be my first time at Bathurst in a Supercar, I’ve got plenty of laps under my belt, having recently won the Bathurst 6 Hour after starting 60th due to a technical infringement. I’ve also raced in the Bathurst 12 Hour, in Carrera Cup, and the Toyota 86 Racing Series.”
“For me, this is going to be an incredible experience, and I’m looking forward to being on the mountain. Hopefully, between Chris and I we can achieve a great result.”
Pither said he was looking forward to sharing the PremiAir Coca-Cola Racing Supercar with the up-and-coming Hill.
“It’s very hard to get your first opportunity in the Supercars Championship.’ said Pither.
“Cam’s been going well in Super2, this year, so he deserves the opportunity. Racing in the Bathurst 1000 for the first time is a special experience, I look forward to sharing with him. I know he’ll do a great job.”
PremiAir Racing Team Principal Matt Cook, is pleased to welcome the Canberra-based racer to the team.
“We are very excited to have Cam coming on board with Chris to co-drive the PremiAir Coca-Cola Racing Supercar.”
“Cam currently drives for Triple Eight Race Engineering in Super2 and our cars are Triple Eight cars, so the transition should be pretty seamless for him and we are hoping he can do some big things here with us.”
Coca-Cola Europacific Partner’s National Partnership Manager, Lyndon Hunter said “We’re delighted to welcome Cam into the PremiAir Racing Team for the upcoming Bathurst 1000 and excited to see Chris and Cam team-up to drive the Coca-Cola Supercar around the mountain one last time in a Holden.”
Hill joins Pither on Tuesday, August 9th, at Queensland Raceway for a test day in preparation for the Repco Bathurst 1000.
