The start of the 2019 Bathurst 6 Hour

Organisers of the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour have confirmed the event will once again be held over the Easter long weekend in 2020.

The three day event will again culminate with a six hour production car race starting at noon on the Sunday (April 12).

Bathurst has long held a race weekend over Easter, with the current production car enduro having taken centre stage in 2016.

This year’s race was dominated by Beric Lynton and Tim Leahey, the pair leading all 131 laps from pole position in a BMW M3.

Previous winners include Chaz Mostert and Nathan Morcom (2016), and Paul Morris with Luke Searle in 2017.

Brothers Grant and Iain Sherrin won the 2018 event, the shortest in the event’s brief history with just 109 laps completed.

Announced during this year’s event, title sponsor Hi-Tec Oils is also set to continue on until 2023.

The 2020 Bathurst 6 Hour will be held from April 10-12. comment policy
