This event races GT3, GT4 and invited production-based or specialised endurance vehicles with four classes permitting 3 or 4 drivers. First racing in 1991, the Bathurst 12 Hour now attracts thousands of visitors yearly to Mount Panorama to watch this exciting race. The race is also televised live on TV in Australia and is typically viewed by millions worldwide.

Australia’s International Endurance Race has become one of the most anticipated races on the GT calendar, with 12 hours of exhilarating action at the iconic Mount Panorama. Some of the most talented international drivers on the planet will battle against our Supercars stars in a host of the latest GT3 vehicles.

The Paddock is free with your event ticket, giving you behind-the-scenes access to watch the teams in action in the garages. Away from the racing on the track, see the latest road cars from the world’s premium manufacturers, ranging from high-powered performance vehicles to the latest in EV technology up close in one place.

Unique bars, classic cars on display, and entertainment and food offerings add to the motoring festival feel; the LIQUI MOLY Bathurst 12 Hour delivers an unforgettable experience.

Ticket sales commence in August, allowing visitors to secure their spots early. Grandstand and general admission tickets will be available, as well as camping passes for visitors to make the most of this huge event.

Trackside camping is also available during this event, with several campgrounds available, including McPhillamy, Reid & Sulman, Paddock and Tent City. Toilets and showers are available on-site; however, the campsites have no power. Private generators are welcome. Alcohol is permitted in the campgrounds, but only in ‘reasonable’ quantities. You can park your car at your campsite, as long as it fits within the perimeter of your site. Animals are not permitted in the campgrounds.

Travel along the Great Western Highway through the Blue Mountains to reach Mount Panorama from Sydney. The trip takes around 3.5 hours, but on busy race days, it can take up to 5 hours with traffic, so ensure you leave enough time to make the journey. Train and bus services also operate and stop at the Bathurst Railway Station, located at the bottom of Keppel Street.
