A local soccer club enjoyed a successful Bathurst 12 Hour on the weekend, selling hot food and drinks to race fans to raise money.
Bathurst City Red Tops Soccer Club has been selling food at the top of Mount Panorama every chance it gets and club secretary Margaret Higgins said it's great to receive such support from the motorcar fans.
