The most iconic motorsport event in Australia, the Repco Bathurst 1000, will run over six spectacular days at Mount Panorama as the final event of this year’s Repco Supercars Championship.
In an historic first, Bathurst Regional Council, Repco, Supercars and ARG have joined forces to combine Australasia’s leading categories for the biggest motorsport event ever staged in Australia.
The motorsport extravaganza will feature six-days of on-track entertainment and racing from Tuesday the 30th of November through until the Great Race on Sunday the 5th of December.
“I would like to thank the Mayor Ian North, Rob Cameron at Repco and John McMellan at ARG for their collaboration over the past few weeks to put together what might be known as the best ever Repco Bathurst 1000,” Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said.
“It’s been a tough year for motorsport fans but we’re confident this is the recipe for the best possible end to the 2021 season.”
Erebus Motorsport CEO Barry Ryan said: “the entire team is eager to get back racing and there’s no better way to finish the season then at the biggest race of the year.
“We look forward to completing four more events before heading back to the mountain for the season finale.”
Supercars and ARG will be working closely with NSW health authorities around COVID-safe measures and Public Health Order requirements to ensure the safety of all staff and patrons attending the event.
Fans at the track and watching at home, will be able to take in the Southern Hemisphere’s best motorsport categories in an event that reinforces Mount Panorama’s reputation as Australia’s motorsport Mecca. Support categories taking to the mountain will include the Super 2 Series, Porsche Carrera Cup, Toyota Gazoo Racing 86 Series, and TCR Australia to name a few.
The event will become the finale of the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship as part of the latest revision of the draft calendar.
Discussions are ongoing with various stakeholders on the four other events that are due to feature on the calendar prior to the Repco Bathurst 1000.
Full broadcast details for the remaining events of the Repco Supercars Championship will be announced in coming weeks.
