12:59 pm on 28 November 2013

The recently retired Formula One driver Mark Webber says he'll contest his first Bathurst 12-hour endurance race but it won't be until 2015.

He'll share his Porsche with Australian movie star Eric Bana.

Bana is a renowned car enthusiast and has previously raced the Bathurst 12-hour event as well as the Targa Tasmania rallies and the Porsche GT3 challenge.

Webber quit Formula One after 12 seasons to switch to sports car racing with German manufacturer Porsche but is yet to announce his 2014 schedule.
