Name revealed for new Bathurst Supercars event

NEXT year’s Repco Supercars Championship season-opener will be known as the 2024 Thrifty Bathurst 500.

Supercars has confirmed rental car company Thrifty has taken naming rights for the additional Mount Panorama round.

That follows it backing Round 1 this year in Newcastle, and the street race not being renewed in time to make the 2024 calendar.

Running February 23-25, the Thrifty Bathurst 500 will form the second half of a SuperFest at the Mountain, which will kick off the previous weekend with the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour.

“We are delighted to welcome Thrifty as the naming rights partner for the Bathurst 500, kicking off what promises to be an exhilarating 2024 Repco Supercars Championship season,” said Supercars general manager of commercial, Jamie Black.

“As Supercars’ official car rental partner, Thrifty’s dedication to excellence and passion for innovation align seamlessly with the values of Supercars.

“We look forward to creating memorable moments for fans not just at the Thrifty Bathurst 500, but across the entire 2024 Repco Supercars Championship season.”

“As the official rental car partner of Supercars, we’re able to connect with motorsport enthusiasts across Australasia, offering them incredible deals and unmatched value for their next adventure.”
