The striking livery that the Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia entry will sport at this year’s LIQUI MOLY Bathurst 12 Hour has been unveiled.
The Scott Taylor Motorsport Mercedes AMG GT3 sports Taylor’s regular green and black hues, with major signage for the charity throughout the livery.
A notable #GetChecked hashtag covers the rear wing to encourage people to join the conversation across the event period.
Having fielded a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car this year, the Scott Taylor Motorsport squad will step up to the Pro-Am class behind the wheel of Taylor’s Mercedes AMG GT3 this year.
Taylor will again be joined by Craig Lowndes, Alex Davison and Geoff Emery as the combination step up to GT3 competition, having won their class in 2022.
The Team will again be run by Ash Seward Motorsport, who the Team shared success with in 2022.
Around 24,000 Australian men are diagnosed each year with prostate cancer, and over 3,500 will die from the disease.
Fundraising on the day will include donation points at the event, at the town-to-track activation on Thursday prior to the race and via online portals.
The remarkable campaign this year generated an enormous response and raised more than $67,000 for the Foundation before, during and after the 2022 event.
“I am excited to be heading back to Mount Panorama with good mates for a great cause.
“Prostate Cancer has unfortunately impacted my family. So running a car in support of PCFA is a chance for us to have the conversation about getting checked, raising funds and having a red hot go at the podium”.
"This year was a great experience driving with good friends and for a really worthy cause that has touched us all.
"It was easy to agree to come back and the step into the Mercedes AMG takes it to another level.
"Ultimately we're out there to have a good time and do everything possible to raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and if we can do that and enjoy the weekend as well then it will be very worthwhile."
"Any opportunity to race at Bathurst in a Porsche or a GT3 car you have to grab with both hands.
"We had a really good experience this year working with a great group of guys and girls at ASM and with Scotty Taylor's team. To know we raised that much money for a cause important to us all was incredible, and we hope to improve on that, and our result, in 2023."
“Rebecca my amazing wife and I have a saying in our household that obliges our behaviour and we hope encourages others likewise, and that is:
‘We feel that we all have the capacity to give back to our communities in some way so as to build a better tomorrow for those in need of that vital support’”
ANNE SAVAGE – CEO of PROSTATE CANCER FOUNDATION OF AUSTRALIA
“Beyond the funds raised in 2022, the STM team helped us raise awareness of prostate cancer among hundreds of thousands of supporters in Australia and worldwide, driving action to save lives.
“We are incredibly grateful to Scott Taylor for his generosity and leadership and to Craig and Lara Lowndes for their tireless and heartfelt support of our mission.
“2023 is going to be bigger and better than ever, and we are tremendously proud to have the backing of the STM Team run under Ash Seward Motorsport.
“These guys are champions on and off the track and we can’t wait to hit the circuit in support of this truly first class motor-racing crew.”
