Bathurst 12 Hour crowd figure released

SUPERCARS has reported a total crowd figure of 47,333 for the 2024 Repco Bathurst 12 Hour.

That tally represents the third-highest in event history, albeit still some way off last year’s record of 53,446.

“This year’s event has delivered exceptional on track action over three days and been extremely well received by fans and campers off track,” said Bathurst 12 Hour event director Shane Rudzis.

“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.

“We’ve already begun planning for next year’s Bathurst 12 Hour and can’t wait to be back here again in 2025.”

The 12 Hour was won yesterday by the #912 Manthey EMA Porsche shared by Matt Campbell, Laurens Vanhoor and Ayhancan Güven.

The Bathurst SuperFest now moves into its second half, with Mount Panorama hosting the Supercars season-opener on February 23-25.
