New title sponsor for Bathurst 12 Hour

AUSTRALIA’S international enduro will be known as the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour in 2024.

Repco replaces Liqui Moly as the event’s naming rights sponsor, with the GT3 spectacle to run Bathurst 16-18 as part of a new ‘SuperFest’ which will see the Supercars season kick off the following weekend at Mount Panorama.

“Repco is proud to build on its association with the Bathurst community and become the major partner of the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour in 2024,” said Repco CEO Wayne Bryant.

“Mount Panorama is a circuit steeped in history. The Repco Bathurst 1000 is famous all over the world, and in a very short time, the 12 Hour event has also earned its place as a global motorsport ‘must watch’ event.

“The Bathurst 12 Hour has become the unofficial start of the circuit racing calendar in Australia and established itself as a must-win event for drivers and teams from around the world.

“Given the Repco Supercars Championship kicks off the following weekend at Mount Panorama, it was an obvious fit for us.” 

Bathurst 12 Hour event director Shane Rudzis said: “Repco are one of the most significant supporters of Australian Motorsport and we welcome the addition of their brand to the Bathurst 12 Hour as our title partner. 

“As Australia’s International Enduro, the 12 Hour will not only bring the Repco brand to a passionate local audience, but a truly global one as well. 

“Repco are investing heavily on the fan experience and access to the sport, which are hallmarks of the 12 Hour, so this is a perfect match for the event as it heads into an exciting new era. 

“With new cars coming and even more on the horizon, the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour is poised for a strong period of growth heading into 2024 and beyond.”
