Courtney believes Murphy best bet for Bathurst win

5:55 am on 17 July 2013

The former Australian V8 Supercars champion James Courtney believes his partnership with New Zealand's Greg Murphy is the best chance of winning the Bathurst 1000 in his career.

Murphy has been confirmed as Courtney's co-driver for this year's endurance events at Sandown, Bathurst and on the Gold Coast.

The 40-year-old Murphy is a four-time Bathurst winner but the 1000-kilometre classic is the one achievement missing from Courtney's resume.

Murphy has been unable to find a regular drive for this year's V8 Supercar series.
