Craft-Bamboo Racing has released its livery and driver line-up for this weekend’s 12 Hour.

The Hong Kong team returns for another tilt at LIQUI MOLY Bathurst 12 Hour glory.

The team boasts an impressive driver line-up of two factory Mercedes-AMG drivers in Maro Engel and Daniel Juncadella.

German Engel and Spaniard Juncadella will be joined by amateur driver Kevin Tse.

Engel, a former Supercar driver, returns for another shot at winning the race.

He scored pole in 2014 and infamously missed out in 2017 after a late Shane van Gisbergen crash.

The #91 Mercedes-AMG GT3 livery features backing from Evisu, Motul, Contempo Concept and Tarmac Works.

Two-time 12 Hour winner Darryl O’Young, Craft Bamboo team director, was delighted to return to Bathurst.

“I’m really pleased to be back at the Bathurst 12 Hour as a Mercedes-AMG Performance team,” he said.

“Our drivers are strong, we have worked many times over the years with Maro and Kevin, and we are very happy to welcome Daniel to the team this year.

“Bathurst is a very unique circuit, and although it is Kevin and Daniel’s first time on the mountain.

“They boast years of experience at circuits such as Macau Grand Prix as well as Daniel’s experience at Nurburgring.

“This is quite important as driving at high speed close to walls is something not so easy to adapt to.

“I’m also glad to have a great list of partners this year to ensure our team is able to perform at the highest level.

“Really excited to get the week started.”

Cars will hit the track next Friday, which will be headlined by a first-ever night practice.
