FANS’ CHANCE TO LIFT PETER BROCK TROPHY

SUPERCARS fans will be treated to some special opportunities at this year’s Repco Bathurst 1000 thanks to the launch of a revamped Harris Park precinct.

Situated near the Mount Panorama start/finish line, the area pays homage to the 50th anniversary of Peter Brock’s first Great Race win, including a tribute to the Holden Torana XU-1 which he drove to victory that day.

Photo opportunities will be aplenty for spectators, who will have the chance to be pictured on a podium at Harris Park holding the Peter Brock Trophy. A giant Bathurst 1000 sign will also be erected near the main gate.

The area will further play host to the Bathurst Public House.

“This newly revamped Harris Park precinct has had a makeover that I think all fans coming to the Repco Bathurst 1000 will enjoy,” said Supercars CEO Shane Howard.

“This has been made possible through the support and vision of our friends at Repco.

“We’ve worked hard on this project together to ensure we honour the amazing history of this event as well as providing more entertainment and enhancing the overall fan experience.

“Whether it’s a fan’s first Bathurst 1000 or 50th, we are sure there is something for everyone.”

Repco CEO Wayne Bryant expressed his delight at facilitating the overhaul, at an event where his company will also be celebrating its centenary.

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Supercars to reinvigorate the Harris Park precinct,” said Bryant.

“We really want to deliver the best experience possible for the race fans, and I am confident everyone will love it.

“This is a special year for Repco, as we celebrate our centenary, so it is fitting that we will be sharing our motorsport history with the best fans in the world, at the best track in the world.

“In addition to all the fantastic activities in Harris Park, we have also worked with the Bathurst Regional Council on a very special once in a lifetime display in the National Motor Racing Museum.

“This exhibition celebrates the rich motorsport history of Repco, and thanks to our friends at Supercars, will see several of the vehicles that are being displayed hit the track on Sunday morning.”

The Repco Bathurst 1000 will be held across October 6-9.
