SIXTEEN years after David Russell first shared a seat with his father Geoff at Mount Panorama, the pair will again unite for a tilt at Bathurst glory.
They will race a BMW 135i prepared by Sherrin Racing in this Sunday's Bathurst 6 Hour.
The premier Australian Production Car endurance race will mark the second time that this father and son combination will compete together, the last time being at the 2003 Bathurst Two Hour Production Car Showdown.
The Russells hope to mark the reunion with a Class B1 podium.
"We head to Bathurst competing to win our class and to achieve a strong outright result. I think we have the car and team to achieve this goal," David Russell said.
"Dad has been by my side throughout my racing career and we have always talked about racing together again one day. The opportunity to do that at the 6 Hour will be great and we are really looking forward to it."
Both Russells' possess vast experience of racing at Mount Panorama.
Geoff Russell's links to the circuit include a total of 10 Bathurst 1000s, highlighted by his top six finish co-driving with Rusty French in 1984 Bathurst.

David Russell has raced to class victories in every 6, 12 and 24 Hour Bathurst Production Car and GT endurance race that he has finished since 2001.
Russell Senior is eager to partner up with his son, after watching David race at the mountain countless times across several different categories over the years.
"I couldn't ask for a more experienced co-driver for this race and the fact that he is my son makes it so much more special. I am sure that we will be a great driving combination at the Six Hour where it is all about consistency, reliability and strategy," Geoff Russell stated.
