Bathurst 6 Hour opens EOI for support categories
Friday 15 July, 2022
The Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour has opened up expressions of interest for support categories to make up the schedule for the 2023 edition of the popular event.
Traditionally held over the Easter long weekend in April, the event has a number of support categories as part of the three-day event at Australia’s most iconic circuit.
This year's edition saw national categories such as the Supercheap Auto TCR Australia and Turtle Wax Trans Am Series join up with the Nissan Pulsar series, NSW Historic Touring Cars and HQ Holdens to form a bumper support list.
Broadcast via Stan Sport, the event is the perfect stage for categories to get on the national spotlight for promotion.
Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour Event Director Ken Collier encouraged clubs to consider applying for the support category program.
"We're always looking for categories that might want to grab an opportunity to race at Mount Panorama and be part of the Bathurst 6 Hour week," Collier said.
"This year our support program provided big fields and lots of great racing, which is great for the competitors and great for the spectators who come to the circuit and watch on TV.
"We are in the process of looking ahead to 2023 and building the on-track program so we have put the call out to categories around Australia to put their hands up.
"We always have more demand for a position on the event than we have space, but it's good to know who is out there and see if there is a great new addition that can add value to the event.
"The Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour is an amateur team and family focused event with great on-site camping and a highly organised but relaxed atmosphere. I encourage any category that is thinking about a round at our event to contact me so that you can be considered.”

The 2023 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour takes place at Mount Panorama on 7-9 April.
