Kenthurst Lad Racing at Bathurst


Growing up in Porters Road Kenthurst and attending Hills Grammar, Aaron Zerefos has always been competitive.

Many lads aspire to be racing drivers, but Zerefos, who learned to drive on the 5 acre property, has made his dream a reality.

“Racing is in my blood man – I love it and I’m always here for the competition!” said Zerefos.

Now living in Los Angeles, Zerefos is returning to Australia to compete in the 2024 Repco Bathurst 12 Hour race. Regarded as Australia’s international endurance race, it attracts the world’s bests drivers including Valentino Rossi who will make his second start in the event.

It will be Zerefos’ ninth start in the marathon endurance race at Mount Panorama, and he is excited to be returning to the holy grail of Australian motorsport.

“I look forward to what the Mountain has in store for 2024,” Zerefos said.

Aaron will join Griffith Racing team, driving the #56 Ginetta G56 GT4 alongside English drivers Colin White and Owen Hizzey. The car features a Ginetta built 6.2 litre V8 engine, with a power output of 500 hp.

“I got a good feel for the Ginetta – it’s going to be a good package for the long-distance race and it has plenty of Torque good for Bathurst’s long straights.

“The race pace is going to be potentially the fastest it’s ever been. Hopefully we can keep our head down, look after the equipment and come home with a good result.”
