More than 47,000 fans have filled Mount Panorama for this year’s Repco Bathurst 12 Hour, the second highest three-day crowd figures recorded for the international endurance event.

47,333 fans lined the circuit to see the best endurance drivers from Australia and abroad to battle on one of the most iconic circuits in the world.

It’s the third-highest crowd ever recorded for the event, following last year’s record breaking figure of 53,446.

Shane Rudzis, Repco Bathurst 12 Hour Event Director said: “This year's event has delivered exceptional on track action over three days and been extremely well received by fans and campers off track.

“From the partner activations in Harris Park featuring global brands, to the demonstrations on track of the Ford Super Van, Supercars and the unrestricted Mercedes AMG GT3 to autograph sessions with superstars like the great Valentino Rossi, Craig Lowndes, Jamie Whincup, Paul Tracy, Kenny Habul, Jules Gounon and many more, it has been a great success.

“Our support categories added something different for fans of all kinds, while Sunday’s race has been filled with all the drama, highs and lows that this event is internationally renowned for.

"The Bathurst 12 Hour allows us to showcase Mount Panorama to a truly global audience of Motorsport fans and the teams who have travelled from around the world have been blown away by the support they have received all week.

“Thank you to our great partners at Repco, Bathurst Regional Council, the NSW Government and broadcasters Foxtel and the Seven Network for supporting this event.
