The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour will continue in its February slot

The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour will retain its early February date slot next year.

Organisers have confirmed the growing GT endurance race event at Mount Panorama will be held from February 1-3 in 2019.

The race continues to impress on the world stage and is widely regarded as one of GT racing’s top global events.

This year Belgian squad WRT Audi claimed victory when the R8 GT3 of Robin Frijns, Dries Vanthoor and Stuart Leonard took the win following a dramatic climax to the once around the clock enduro.

More than 41,000 spectators attended the three-day event, which represented an eight percent increase on the previous edition.

“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.”

Advanced ticket sales for next year’s event will commence from May 14.
