PRACTICE & QUALIFYING COMPLETE ON A GOOD BATHURST FRIDAY

A GOOD FRIDAY with near-perfect weather has seen practice and qualifying completed at the Bathurst Motor Festival at the start of the Easter long weekend.

Seven different classes of racing and regularity competitors took to the Mountain today, ahead of race competition commencing tomorrow morning and carrying through until Easter Sunday concludes.

A host of significant national-level drivers are featuring at the Festival this weekend, with several notable competitors using the weekend to gain rare laps at Mount Panorama.

TEENAGE TEARAWAYS SET FOR BATHURST DEBUTS

WHILE THE BATHURST Motor Festival showcases an incredibly diverse array of cars and drivers across the 332 entrants received for the Event, it is a group of teenagers who will be perhaps the most excited for the coming long weekend.

A group of incredibly talented youthful young drivers from around Australia will get their first laps of the famous Mount Panorama circuit at the Festival this Easter.

RAW SPEED NOT EVERYTHING IN BATHURST PRODUCTION CAR BATTLE

THEY MIGHT not be the fastest cars up, down or around Mount Panorama this weekend, but competitors in the opening round of the Australian Suzuki Swift Series this weekend will probably be having the most fun.

Running in conjunction with the New South Wales Production Touring Car (PTC) Series races, the Swifts ‘race within a race’ features one-make, 1.6-litre cars that always offer an exciting brand of close and competitive racing.

HUGE FIELDS DRAWN TO BATHURST REGULARITY OPPORTUNITY

IN PREVIOUS YEARS the New South Wales Road Racing Club (NSWRRC) has had an issue that many racing organisations would crave – an oversubscribed entry list and a massive reserve list of competitors.  

That will not be an issue for the club when they return to the Bathurst Motor Festival next week, a second group of competitors to take to the track thanks to the more than 110 entries received by Event organisers.

SPORTS CAR SPECTACULAR SET FOR EASTER ENDURO

FOR THE SECOND TIME this year a big field of Production-based Sports and GT vehicles will tackle long-distance racing at Mount Panorama.

A massive field of New South Wales Production Sports Car Racing Series competitors will descend on the Mountain for the Bathurst Motor Festival this Easter 18-20, just three months after the incredible Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour thrilled an international audience in February.

The Prod Sports field will look somewhat similar to the 12-hour grid, too – famous brands like Porsche, Lamborghini and BMW amongst the 52 entries.
