This year's Repco Bathurst 1000 will run over six days at Mount Panorama as the final event of the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship.

The Bathurst Regional Council, Repco, Supercars and ARG have joined forces to combine Australasia's leading categories for the biggest motorsport event ever staged in Australia.

The historic first will see Mount Panorama host six-days of on-track entertainment and racing between Tuesday November 30 and Sunday December 5.

This year’s Repco Bathurst 1000 will be the first Great Race to be staged in December.

Supercars and ARG will be working closely with NSW health authorities around COVID-safe measures and Public Health Order requirements to ensure the safety of all staff and patrons attending the event.

The six-day Bathurst event will also feature the Dunlop Super 2 Series, Porsche Carrera Cup, Toyota Gazoo Racing 86 Series, TCR Australia, Touring Car Masters, S5000, GT World Challenge Australia, V8 SuperUtes and Trans Am.

“I would like to thank the Mayor North, Rob Cameron at Repco and John McMellan at ARG for their collaboration over the past few weeks to put together what might be known as the best ever Repco Bathurst 1000,” Supercars CEO Sean Seamer said.

“It’s been a tough year for motorsport fans but we’re confident this is the recipe for the best possible end to the 2021 season.”

"It is very pleasing when everyone has the same goal which was to make the sport the priority and work collaboratively to deliver something special," ARG Chairman John McMellan added.

"We need to acknowledge the role that all of our respective sponsors played in assisting to make this happen which is reflective of their passion for the sport.

"This event will be a great opportunity to grab the family, go camping in the fresh rural air of Bathurst whilst being entertained by a truly dynamic range of motorsport."

NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said: “We are all eager to get back to enjoying incredible sports events across NSW, which is why it’s so important that our community keeps pushing forward with our outstanding vaccination effort.

“Motorsport has a spiritual home in Bathurst and there’s no doubt that fans love to watch racing unfold at Mount Panorama, be it in person or on the national broadcast.”

Mayor of Bathurst, Ian North added: “The events, over six days, will be something not seen before at the Mount and will be a great way to see racing return to Bathurst in 2021.

“We look forward to being able to welcome the teams, drivers and fans back to Mount Panorama for what will be a festival of motorsport.”

Rob Cameron, Managing Director & CEO of Repco said: “The Repco crew across Australia and New Zealand are so excited to bring fans a true celebration of motorsport.

“In a year that has been so challenging for the sport we love I want to thank the team at Supercars and ARG for putting fans first and working collaboratively with us to ensure we can put on a world class event.

“For us - Bathurst is more than a race, it’s a symbol of everything we all love about the sport, and we can’t wait to bring this event to the fans.”

Supercars and ARG will be working closely with NSW health authorities around COVID-safe measures and Public Health Order requirements to ensure the safety of all staff and patrons attending the event.

The event will become the finale of the 2021 Repco Supercars Championship as part of the latest revision of the draft calendar.
