Time for the 12 Hour!

Mount Panorama, the spiritual home of motor racing in Australia, roars to life this summer with the return of the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour from 31 January to 2 February.

The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour is a race for GT3, GT4 and invited production-based or specialised endurance vehicles. The race is now generally acknowledged and recognised around the world as one of the most significant races for GT vehicles on the calendar, alongside contemporaries like the Spa-Francorchamps 24 Hour and the Nurburgring 24 Hour. This amazing event has been rapidly increasing in popularity with a record crowd of 49,495 in 2019. The 2020 event is promising to be even more spectacular.

Don’t miss the Town to Track celebration from 11.00am – 1.30pm on Thursday 30 January. Meet the drivers and view the cars on display in front of the Bathurst Courthouse on Russell St.

 It has also been announced that, in line with Bathurst’s own fundraising suggestions for each team, SRO Motorsports Group – the organisers of the Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli, will donate $5 AUD for every racing lap completed by all entries nominated to score Intercontinental points.

While the final number of #IntGTC manufacturers and cars won’t be revealed until next week, a repeat of 2019’s Bathurst result would generate more than $22,000 AUD.

As well as raising funds for the Lions Club Foundation, the Bathurst 12 Hour will also support the tireless efforts of the New South Wales Rural Fire Service throughout the event. Each race car will sport the RFS logo, while all RFS volunteers who wish to attend will receive a double pass for free.
