AT A GLANCE


Bathurst is a 1,000km touring car race held annually at Mount Panorama Circuit in Bathurst, New South WalesAustralia. The race began in 1960 and ever since has been known to amongst fans as “The Great Race.” It is widely regarded as the pinnacle of Australian Motorsport. Since 1999 the race has been run exclusively for V8 Supercars and is now a round of the V8 Supercar Championship Series. The race winners receive the Peter Brock Trophy which was introduced at the 2006 race in honour of deceased nine-time Bathurst winner Peter Brock, most successful driver in the history of the race.

Be there at Mount Panorama this year!

2013

Last year was hugely successful and our packages got race fans to where they wanted to be in style with all clients thoroughly enjoying every moment! The Great Race in 2013 saw Mark Winterbottom take out his maiden Bathurst 1000 title, holding off Jamie Whincup in a frantic finish! Craig Lowndes celebrated his 20th Bathurst and 500th career start with third place! Winterbottom – partnered by Paul Dumbrell – only won by 0.47th of a second in the blustery and wet conditions! Racing doesn’t get much better than that!
