Attracting some of the biggest drivers from the country and a handful of exciting support categories, the highly anticipated event is sure to prove quite the hit for the thousands of fans across the three days.
Once again, the main event boasts a high-quality entry list with a strong field of 160 drivers spread across 61 cars, with the category to be on show multiple times throughout the weekend.
Some of the notable entrants for the 6 Hour include reigning champions Jayden Ojeda and Simon Hodges, Supercars stars Will Davison, Thomas Randle and Tim Slade, Bathurst legend John Bowe and a host of previous event champions, including Iain and Grant Sherrin, Tim Leahey and Beric Lynton, Shane Smollen, and Rob Rubus.

While there will be lots to keep track of in the 6 Hour itself, the support bill will undoubtedly pique the interest of many motorsport fans around the country.

Forming part of the jam-packed array of support categories are HQ Holdens, Hyundai Excels and Nissan Pulsars, Improved Production, the Australian Formula Ford Series and the brand-new Supermini Challenge.
Starting off with the new series, a field of 23 Mini Coopers and Mini Challenge cars will grace the iconic circuit for the first time in its short history, with Bathurst 1000 wildcard racer, Zane Goddard headlining the entry list. 
The popular Australian Formula Ford Series will be kicking off its 2024 campaign at the mountain on the weekend, and it has 20 cars confirmed to take part in the first of its seven-round season. 
The Excels will also be using the weekend to open a unique competition, with Bathurst to serve as the first stop of a three-event CERA Dunlop Destiny Series, which is giving young rising stars a national platform to showcase their talents.
Boating one of the largest grids of the event is the Revolution Racegear Improved Production, which will have a diverse field of 55 cars contesting the round, including Improved Production stars Adam Poole and Luke Grech-Cumbo.
Rounding out the support categories are the HQ Holdens and Nissan Pulsars – both of which always provide entertaining racing at grassroots level.
With such a strong main category and support bill, the event’s bumper schedule begins early on Good Friday and concludes on Easter Sunday with the six-hour Production Car race.
The three-day meeting includes a number of practice and qualifying sessions, as well as 19 support races and the main event.
