Fast Cars


A Bathurst-themed comedy show is a highlight of the upcoming Bathurst SuperFest.

As part of the SuperFest, the sold-out smash-hit comedy of 2023 — Fast Cars — returns in 2024. The comedy show — that shares themes with the likes of Schitts Creek, Upper Middle Bogan and The Castle — is a show for rev heads.

Fast Cars is a fast-paced comedy about the Peter Brock-loving Byrnes family, who live for the Great Race, their home-grown Brocky burgers and making their dreams come true.

Tickets are on sale now, and there are shows on Monday 19 February, Tuesday 20 February and Wednesday 21 February. Tickets and more details can be found here.

Supercars Transporter parade

Supercars teams will announce their arrival to Bathurst on Wednesday February 21 from 4pm with the full fleet of transporters – with tens of millions of dollars’ worth of Supercars hardware on-board – driving through Bathurst CBD en route to Mount Panorama Circuit.

The transporter parade will travel through the Bathurst CBD along William Street, where fans can catch their favourite teams B-Doubles prior to their first visit to the Mountain for 2024.

Project Elevate

A further collaboration between Supercars and the BRC, Project Elevate is a self-drive tour through the Bathurst region, featuring a number of iconic restaurants, breweries, and other local attractions.

With thousands already booked to attend the full duration of Bathurst SuperFest, Project Elevate will offer visiting patrons plenty of opportunities to enjoy the best the Bathurst region has to offer.

In addition to the above entertainment options, ticket holders to either or both of the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour and Thrifty Bathurst 500 will receive free entry to Bathurst’s National Motor Racing Museum, located adjacent to the final corner of the circuit.

With further entertainment details and activities to be announced in the coming weeks, the Bathurst SuperFest is set to entertain fans of all ages and interests from February 15-25 at Mount Panorama.
