The Bathurst 6-Hour is just around the corner and racecar fans are gearing up for another exciting weekend at Mount Panorama.
WHAT IS THE BATHURST 6 HOUR?
The Bathurst 6 Hour is Australia's longest race production cars at Mount Panorama. It includes three days of racing at Mount Panorama across the Easter long weekend. Although the race only goes for six hours, the event goes for three days with practice sessions across Friday and Saturday morning, qualifying rounds on Saturday afternoon and the race taking place on Sunday.
WHEN IS THE BATHURST 6 HOUR?
This year that means the green lights go at 11.30am on Sunday, April 21. But the fun begins on Friday.
ARE THERE STILL TICKETS AVAILABLE?
Yes! And there will be tickets on the gate. A three day pass starts at $30, tickets for individual days start at $5 and go to $15. Find tickets here. The event sees around 18,000 people watch and 300 vehicles compete at Mount Panorama.
WHAT KIND OF WEATHER IS EXPECTED?
It's expected to be mostly sunny and 24 degrees across the entire weekend. For those camping (yes, that's an option), it's only meant to get down to 10 degrees overnight. For Bathurst...that's balmy.
