Bathurst 12 Hour Marshal Invite, Mount Panorama February 3-5, 2017

If you think marshal invitations for Lone Star Le Mans & Petit Le Mans are early, you haven’t gotten an invite for 2017 yet… mine showed up a few days ago from Australia. The Bathurst 12 hour race is in February of 2017 but V8 Supercars or just Supercars are already recruiting!

Having done it twice, I highly recommend this event!

What is it; Bathurst 12h

When is it: February 3-5, 2017

Where is it:Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst, NSW, Australia

Who’s recruiting: Supercars

Who will be there: Australian GT + multiple international entries. Typical support races include production cars which are 1970’s style HQ Holden taxis, Northern Muscle Club from Australia bring their vintage Trans Am cars, etc.

How to get there? Fly into Sydney (SYD) and take the 4 hour drive to Bathurst. Public transport is possible with train connections in Lithgow, but I’d recommend hiring a car instead. Alternatively you can probably go on Flag Marshals of the World and bum a ride from a local… I’ve rented a car in 2013 and mooched a ride in 2016.

Where to stay?  The cheapest place: Mt Panorama campground. The camping is shared with spectators but is pretty close to the Marshal Mustering tent, with convenient access to the track and stations. In the past I also used CouchSurfing to stay in the surrounding area. But camping is convenient (as much as I dislike it).

Good Luck!

Have Fun!

Registration is Open for the Liqui Moly Bathrust 12h at Mount Panorama

My fingers are now crossed on both hands as I submitted my registration for the Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 hour race in February of 2016 taking place along the public street of Mount Panorama in New South Wales, Australia.

I registered, and you should too!

Why is this event so awesome?

Because… it is the biggest event on the Australian racing calendar. It is bigger than the recently popular Australian V8 Supercars races on the same circuit. It is bigger than Formula One in Melbourne. It’s huge!

I had the privilege to marshal the Bathurst 12h race at the start of the 2013 season and the event has only grown bigger since then. So I really look forward to coming back. Back then I marshaled on the very top of the mountain (above the famous Mount Panorama sign) but now have requested something closer to the paddock/pits area so I can wander on our off time to check out the amazing machinery on display, most of it from overseas. (New Zealand, Asia, Europe, US)
