The Great Race Festival

Off-Track Events for 2020.

To celebrate the 2020 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and the final round of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, the Great Race Festival Off-Track Events will provide a number of activities for residents and businesses to be involved.

The 2020 Great Race Festival Off-track Events will be held from 14 -18 October. This year’s event will look quite different, whilst still supporting local businesses, showcasing the Bathurst Region, and ensuring community connectedness. The biggest changes for 2020 will see the removal of the Transporter and Driver Parade, B-Rock Super Wednesday Driver Signing, and the Saturday Street Fair.

The Off-track Events will adhere to current NSW Health guidelines and conduct activities in a COVID-Safe manner. We ask that when participating in activities, people maintain social distancing and do not attend any activity if feeling unwell or experiencing flu like symptoms.
