This year’s Repco Bathurst 1000 will mark 60 years since the annual enduro was first held at Mount Panorama, and with the 60th Anniversary event expected to attract a huge crowd, tickets are already on sale.
In fact, Supercars advised that tickets for the 2023 Bathurst 1000 went on sale in the first week of December, ensuring early-bird fans could secure their attendance well in advance of the 5-8 October event.
As well as being the 60th Anniversary since the 500 mile (later 1,000km) race was first held at Bathurst (after three years at Phillip Island), this year’s enduro is also significant in that it’ll be the first with the Gen3 Ford Mustang and all-new Gen3 Chevrolet Camaro.
“The 60th anniversary of the Repco Bathurst 1000 will be one of the biggest events in our history,” said Supercars CEO Shane Howard.
“Planning is already underway to celebrate the great success of one of Australia’s most beloved sporting events.”
At last year’s Bathurst 1000, a crowd of 195,578 attended across the four days, but between the 60th Anniversary and this year’s enduro being the first to feature the Gen3 cars, there’s a possibility the 2023 crowd will eclipse the all-time Bathurst 1000 record of 207,205 from 2012.
“Following on from the success of the 2022 event which included the revamped Harris Park precinct, more additions will be made to ensure the 60th anniversary is one to remember for our fans,” Howard added.
