Council Locks in Easter

The roar of engines will reverberate around Mount Panorama again next April after Council last night accepted a proposal from Yeehah Events to stage the Bathurst Motor Festival over the Easter weekend.

Confirmation that the festival will go ahead is great news for Bathurst and for motor sport enthusiasts, and ensures that a long tradition of Easter racing in Bathurst will continue in 2011.
