A BUMPER grid is assured when the 2016 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour makes its debut at the Bathurst Motor Festival next Easter.
50 entries across 8 different classes have been received by organisers at the time of the ‘early bird’ entry offer closing, though final entries do not need to be submitted by until 28 February next year allowing plenty of time for the grid to grow further.
TICKET SALES for the 2016 Bathurst Motor Festival, to be held on 25-27 March next year, commence on 1 October.
Given the addition of the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour endurance race and the confirmation that five additional categories with full grids will join the bumper program, the tickets also represent the best possible value for money for an Event of its kind.
THE FIVE categories that will join the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour on the 2016 Bathurst Motor Festival program have been confirmed.
Bumper grids are assured from the three race and two regularity categories set to feature on a bumper Easter long-weekend program.
Production Sports Cars, Historic Touring Cars and HQ Holdens will race while Motor Festival regulars, the Porsche Club of NSW and the New South Wales Road Racing Club, will each bring huge fields of competitors looking for their once-a-year chance to get laps at Bathurst.
ENTRIES for the inaugural Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will open next week following strong early interest from Australian Production Car competitors in Bathurst’s newest enduro.
More than 70 expression of interest forms were received from eligible competitors with Event organisers confident that the early interest will translate into a strong field contesting the brand-new race, to be held within the Bathurst Motor Festival across the Easter long weekend next year.
