THE BEST WAY for fans of motor sport to celebrate Easter is by becoming a volunteer at the 2018 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour. 250 volunteers are currently being recruited for the March 30-April 1 Event that will this year not only include a vast array of racing categories, but also the third running of the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour enduro.Quickly becoming one of Bathurst’s iconic races, last year’s event set a record field for a major enduro at Mount Panorama when 64 cars started the race.Already more than 60 cars are entered for the 2018 running with more to come before entries close on Friday this week.Positions are available for both CAMS accredited officials – for positions like flag marshals – and non-accredited positions where formal training is not necessary yet support is still needed.All Event volunteers receive a three-day race pass, campground site, jacket, shirts, cap, poster, meals and a complimentary guest pass – as well as the closest possible access to the cars, circuit and precinct possible.Details and nomination forms are available online by clicking here.”Volunteers are the lifeblood of the sport and it simply cannot function without them,” said Event Director James O’Brien.”The Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour has always been well supported by enthusiastic officials who love spending the long weekend at Mount Panorama. The growth of the 6 hour, in particular, makes it an even more exiting with a massive grid in the main race, and capacity fields in each of our support categories. It is a fantastic weekend of racing and the earlier date this year will mean the weather should be even better than usual.”Existing volunteers will attest they are well looked after at this Event.”As well as an anticipated grid of more than 60 cars competing in the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour, the weekend will also include five additional race and regularity categories that will feature big grids and great racing.
