Joining forces with Tigani Motorsport and Supabarn

The Daniela Dwyer Foundation is proud to announce its involvement in the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour race. The race is part of the Intercontinental GT Challenge season opener.

DDF has joined with Supabarn Racing to help promote awareness of the Foundation’s fund-raising activities to support research and the early detection and intervention of cancer, particularly brain cancer, before the onset of any symptoms.

Supabarn Racing has returned to the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour with the same driving line-up in 2024, but with a new car, displaying the DDF signage, as it aims for more success at Mount Panorama. After several years behind the wheel of an Audi, Supabarn key executives James and Theo Koundouris will be joined by David Russell and former 12-Hour winner Jonathan Webb again in 2024.

This year they have entered a Mercedes-AMG GT3 in the race for the first time. The car made its debut in the hands of the Koundouris brothers at the Adelaide 500 in November 2023, the final round of the GT World Challenge Australia series. The duo recorded top 10 finishes in each of the three races of the GT World Challenge Australia series, running in contention with the GT3-AM class contenders throughout.

The Koundouris brothers have three 12-Hour class wins to their credit while driving together, taking victory aboard a Class B Porsche in 2015, then again in 2018, and in 2022 driving an Audi R8 LMS.
Russell, a two-time Bathurst 1000 podium finisher, has 11 of a possible 12 GT3 era 12-hour starts to his credit, among the most of any driver in the current era.

We are passionate about making a difference, a big difference, but it needs your help. Your donations will help to support vital research and brain cancer services which will make the difference to patients and the way that brain cancer is treated.
Thank you to the boys for their support, and best of luck for the rest of the series.
