Two Peugeot RCZ sports coupes will be among more than 50 cars competing in the 2013 Bathurst 12 Hour race in February.

The French Peugeot Sport team are set to be the only factory-backed entry in the field, and will race in the invitational I1 class for vehicles up to 1600cc.

These race prepped RCZs use an up-specced 190kW/290Nm 1.6 litre turbocharged petrol engine (up from 147kW/275Nm in factory trim), and tip the scales 120kg lighter than stock.

Peugeot Automobiles Australia is also supporting the 12 Hour team, hinting at the potential for further racing involvement for the local distributor.

"An event like the Bathurst 12 Hour is a great toe in the water in Australia as it shows off the racing capability of the RCZ but also reinforces the reliability of the cars as well," Peugeot Australia’s Bill Gillespie said.

The lead RCZ will be driven by three French drivers Stephane Caillet, Bruce Jouanny, and Julien Rueflin.

All three have previously driven diesel-powered factory RCZs in the Nurburgring 24 hour race.

The driver lineup for the second car is yet to be finalised, but motorcycle legend Mick Doohan is tipped to be among the local trio.

Bathurst 12 Hour organisers have this week released an initial entry list for the 2013 event, with 20 of the 54 cars listed travelling from overseas to compete.

Other cars entered in the RCZ’s I1 class include Mazda RX-7s, MINI Cooper S, Lotus Elise, and a trio of New Zealand Seat Leon Supercopa entries.

Local 12 Hour entries will be joined by teams from New Zealand, UK, Singapore, Germany, Hong Kong, USA, Belgium, Switzerland and France.

A new element of the 2013 Bathurst 12 Hour event will be the inclusion of the first round of the 2013 Australian GT Championship, with GT-specific entries competing in the first hour of the main race.

The 2013 Bathurst 12 Hour will be held at the famous Mount Panorama circuit from February 8-11 next year.
