KEY Australian Production Car racers have confirmed their participation in the 2018 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour enduro, despite 200 days remaining until the race starts.
Nearly 30 entries have already been received by Event organisers for the 2018 edition of Bathurst’s new Easter classic, with another bumper field across multiple classes expected to start the race on Easter Sunday.
Early bird entry prices are available until 30 September 2017, with big discounts on entry fees for those entering before this date.
TWO NEW additions to the 2018 Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour support race program have been confirmed today.
Historic Formula Ford Racing and the increasingly popular Hyundai Excel one-make class will join the program next Easter (30 March – 1 April 2018), alongside regular Easter staples Group N Historic Touring Cars, Production Sports Cars and the Porsche Club of NSW Regularity.
2018 will mark the first time that Formula Ford racing has ventured to Mount Panorama since 2015, and the first for the purely historic class that caters for cars built up to 1989.
HIGHLIGHTS of the remarkable Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will be shown on SBS Speedweek on SBS and SBS HD at 1PM this Sunday, 23 April.
An action-packed two hour program will capture all of the highlights and drama from an incredible day on the Mountain, that saw eight different cars lead the race and the six-hour enduro come down to a thrilling finish in the final five minutes.
Luke Searle and Paul Morris' BMW M135i won the race after passing Chaz Mostert and Nathan Morcom's Ford Focus RS within the last two laps in another Bathurst enduro classic.
WHILE the story of Luke Searle and Paul Morris’ victory at the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will be spoken about for days, it wasn't the only fairytale result throughout the 64-strong grid that started the race on Easter Sunday.
Seven classes in total were contested across the six hour event around Mount Panorama and each class winner had a tale to tell following their respective Bathurst victories.
