Contract Extension Secures Supercar Future

Mount Panorama Circuit

Mount Panorama will remain the home of Australian motorsport until at least 2034 after Bathurst Regional Council, last night, agreed to extend its contract with V8 Supercars.

Council has agreed to a 20 year extension of the V8 Supercar contract which will come into force when the current 10 deal expires in 2014.

The contract extension secures the future of the Great Race and will ensure Australia’s top motor racing category remains at the mountain long term.

“This is an outstanding result for the Bathurst Region and reaffirms Mount Panorama’s status as Australia’s premier motor racing venue,” said Mayor Paul Toole.

“By agreeing to this long term contract V8 Supercars have shown their faith in the future of motor racing at Bathurst. Council is thrilled at this show of support and we look forward to continuing our close working relationship with V8 Supercars.”

Mount Panorama has been the home of endurance racing in Australia for almost 50 years. This year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 will take centre stage at Mount Panorama from October 6 – 9.
