A BIG WEEKEND at the Bathurst Motor Festival has finished with a big Easter Sunday of racing at Mount Panorama today.
Five race and two regularity categories wrapped up their respective weekends after another near-perfect Autumn day in Bathurst, with only some early fog slightly delaying proceedings before the sun broke through.
The biggest race of the day was the Production Sports Car one-hour enduro, won spectacularly by Andrew Miedecke and Jamie Augustine in their thundering Daytona Coupe’.
CLEAR BLUE SKIES and warm weather coupled with competitive racing helped create a stunning second day of the Bathurst Motor Festival at Mount Panorama, Bathurst, today.
Event organisers have been pleased with the attendance so far this weekend, a strong crowd gathering at key points at both the top and bottom of Mount Panorama today basking in the sunshine and enjoying the entertaining racing.
THE CHANCE TO SPEND a relaxing Good Friday public holiday enjoying motorsport has drawn plenty of fans to Mount Panorama, as the Bathurst Motor Festival kicked off in spectacular fashion today despite a delayed start.
Heavy fog rolled into Bathurst this morning, completely shrouding the circuit and delaying the first on-track action by ninety minutes - but that failed to dampen the spirits of an enthusiastic public holiday crowd and more than 250 competitors taking to the track today for practice and qualifying.
