Increased free-to-air coverage for Bathurst 12 Hour
Thursday 14th April, 2022 - 12:45pm
The 2022 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour will enjoy increased free-to-air broadcast time, Speedcafe.com has learnt.
It was originally announced that Saturday coverage of the event, headlined by the Pirelli Top 10 Shootout, would be exclusive to subscription platforms Fox Sports and Kayo Sports.
However, it has since been made clear that on-track action on Saturday, May 14 will now also be aired on 7Mate from 12:00-17:00 AEST.
Both the Seven Network and Fox/Kayo will show the once-around-the-clock race the following day, coverage beginning from 05:00 AEST ahead of race start 15 minutes later.
The on-air presenting team for the event is yet to be announced.
This year, the Bathurst 12 Hour will take on a different feel: Pro-Am takes over as the premier class, while the ‘Lucky Dog’ rule has been introduced to help cars unlap themselves during Safety Car periods.
