Team BOC's Bright is the most experienced, having competed in the US Formula Ford 2000 Championship in 1996, Indy Lights in 2000 (including a victory in Portland) and the 2006 Sebring 12 Hour for Aston Martin Racing - where he finished fourth overall and second in class.

Jeld-Wen FPR Ford's Davison (pictured top) was the first Australian to win a race at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway when he won in Porsche Supercup in 2002.

He also competed in a handful of American Le Mans Series races in a Porsche in 2003 and 2008 - including a second place finish in the GT2 class of the 2008 Sebring 12 Hour.

Fujitsu Racing GRM's French ace Premat (pictured above) competed in a round of the American Le Mans Series at Laguna Seca in 2011 in an OAK Racing Pescarolo-Judd, while the Holden Racing Team's Courtney made a one-off start in the U.S. in 2004 when the Japanese GT Championship he was racing in at the time competed at California Speedway in Fontana.
