Contenders

Shane van Gisbergen – The reigning champion has started the season on fire, with six wins from a possible nine. He has never won in Perth – will this be the weekend he rectifies that?

Chaz Mostert – Mostert has won the three races van Gisbergen has not claimed this season. Has four podiums in 17 races at Wanneroo.

Anton de Pasquale – The 26 year-old has only raced in WA four times. After a strong finish to last season, has picked up where he left off early doors in 2022.

Will Davison – Has three victories in WA to his name and has begun this season with four second-place finishes and three pole positions.

David Reynolds – After a slow start, Reynolds has come into his own in the last few races – third, fourth, second, second and third before a retirement in the last race in Melbourne. This weekend’s dark horse.
