The annual Bathurst 12 Hour at Mount Panorama signals the start of what is an extensive season of events for Australian GT in 2020. Taking in the 12 Hour journey as part of a three-round Australian Endurance Championship that includes arguably Australia’s best and most recognised circuits, the event signals the start of a new direction for the category that is focussed on providing value for money GT racing on Australia’s best circuits.
Former Australian GT race winner Tony Bates unveiled a striking new livery and sponsor for his Bathurst 12 Hour return, just a fortnight out from the season opener, the experienced Audi campaigner also revealing that he will make a full-time return to the Australian GT Championship in 2020 after focussing on competition in Asia last year.
With almost four hours of dedicated Australian GT track time on Bathurst’s iconic Mount Panorama Circuit and a chance to take a run at the GT3 lap record, a number of the leading teams lined up for the inaugural Pirelli AGT SuperSprint intent on making an impression.
The final event of the 2019 Australian GT season will see a number of Australia’s leading GT3 teams contest the inaugural Pirelli AGT SuperSprint for just under four hours of track action on one of the greatest circuits in the world – Bathurst’s iconic Mount Panorama.
