The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour have confirmed its date for the 2019 installment, as the event will continue its traditional date in February.

Australia’s International endurance race will be held on February 1-3 at Mount Panorama, which is hoped to repeat another remarkable race like this year’s one.

The 2018 instalment of the race was won by Audi Sport Team WRT and the all-international driving squad of Robin Frijns, Dries Vanthoor and Stuart Leonard.

While over 41,000 people attended the three-day event while millions more watched the event unfold on the Television and the most watched live-streaming coverage in event history.

“The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour has become a traditional part of the motorsport landscape in Australia and around the world,” said Event Director John Casey.

“The race has become one of the iconic races on the GT racing calendar and is held in such high esteem by some of the best teams and brands from around the world.

“The team behind the event is continuing to improve the experience for those attending trackside and we are already working on new ways to grow for the 2019 event.”

Paul Toole, who is one of the members of the Bathurst community, welcomes the international event which gives the regional city a boost in the February month.

“Bathurst is the home of motor racing in Australia and I am looking forward to once again welcoming visitors from around Australia and the world to our spectacular regional city in 2019,” he said.

“The NSW Government is proud to support this event via its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.”
