The 2020 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 has had a major boost, with the confirmation of fans being approved for next month’s Virgin Australia Supercars Championship season finale.
As a result of extensive planning and consultation between Supercars, the NSW Government and Bathurst Regional Council, up to 4000 spectators will be allowed to attend Mount Panorama each day between 15-18 October.
With public camping closed for the event, there will be four spectator points available to attending fans - being Murray’s Corner, Hell Corner, Pit Straight East and Pit Straight West.
Next month’s finale will be the first time ‘The Great Race’ has concluded the season, and Supercars CEO Sean Seamer was excited to have fans present for the biggest round of the year.
“Whilst we are disappointed that we can’t have a full crowd at Bathurst, we’re delighted to offer even limited attendance,” Seamer said.
“A race track like Mount Panorama is not as easy as a stadium to prepare in a COVID-19 compliant way due to the lack of dedicated seating.
“We thank the NSW Government and Bathurst Regional Council for their ongoing support of the event and for working with us on a plan that will allow fans the opportunity to see a new king of the mountain and championship winner crowned on October 18.
“We understand a number of fans will be disappointed that camping and normal ticketing opportunities are not available this year, however the safety of everyone attending the event is our main concern at all times.”
Priority access to the four-day event will be given to all existing ticket holders, with a 24 hour pre-sale window to take place from 12pm AEST on Tuesday 22 September.
Supercars will have two rounds at The Bend Motorsport Park over the next fortnight, before heading to Bathurst where the champion of the 60th edition of the Motorsport Australia Touring Car Championship title will be decided.
The 2020 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 takes place at Mount Panorama in Bathurst on 15-18 October.
