29 October 2023

Supercars has announced its 2024 season will kick off at the Mount Panorama Circuit at Bathurst, with a 10-day event to be known as the Bathurst SuperFest.

The Bathurst SuperFest will feature the Bathurst 12 Hour from February 16 to 18 and Supercars’ Bathurst 500 from February 23 to 25, along with a week-long program of community events to celebrate the start of the 2024 Repco Supercars Championship.

The Bathurst 500 replaces the Newcastle 500 in 2024, with ongoing discussions about the future of the Newcastle event.

“The NSW Government is thrilled to partner with Supercars to once again to deliver more rounds of the 2024 Supercars series here in NSW than any other state,” said Minister for Jobs and Tourism, John Graham.

“We are particularly excited to be hosting two rounds at the nation’s home of motorsport, Mount Panorama-Wahluu in Bathurst, including the opening round of the 2024 Supercars season with the Bathurst 500 as part of Bathurst SuperFest.

“This is a fantastic outcome for the sport, for the fans, for the community of Bathurst and for the people of NSW.”

Supercars CEO Shane Howard added: “The Bathurst SuperFest will give fans close to two weeks to celebrate some of the best drivers in the world, taking on Mount Panorama.

“Combining two marquee race meetings into the one major event in summer is an exciting initiative and we can’t wait to see fans fill the mountain and be a part of the action.

“We thank the NSW Government and Bathurst Regional Council for supporting our vision to bring something new to fans.”
