THE 2016 BATHURST Motor Festival will be bigger and better than ever before and will include a brand-new marquee race: the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour enduro.
As such, there’s also now more ways than ever before to follow the action across the Easter long weekend. Here’s how:
For the first time at the Bathurst Motor Festival, Sunday’s action will be streamed live and free via www.bathurstmotorfestival.com.au.
With coverage produced by noted motorsport production house AVE, each of Sunday’s races – including the debut Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour – will be broadcast live with coverage right the way around Mount Panorama.
Commentary will come from the local on-air team from Bathurst Broadcasters, supported by motorsport caller Richard Craill and a host of guest drivers both in the commentary box and in pit lane.
Streaming commences on Sunday just prior to 8:00am and will continue to the finish of the podium celebrations for the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour that evening.
The stream will also be avaialble via mobile devices via the MotorsportsTV app for Android or iPhone platforms so you can watch it everywhere!
Highlights of the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will air on SBS Speedweek (on SBS One and SBS HD) on Sunday, April 10.
Fans will be able to access live timing for free via the Bathurst Motor Festival website across all three days of on-track action. The brand-new Mount Panorama timing system offers multiple pages of information for fans to access including a circuit tracker, statistics and more – the same info the teams get in pit lane.
The Bathurst Motor Festival will be posting regular content to social media throughout the weekend, with people encouraged to follow the event on Facebook and Twitter.
The official hashtags for the weekend are #BMF2016 and #B6HR – join the conversation!
