From the Mayor's Desk

Repco Mount Panorama 500

To those who are visiting Bathurst for the weekend, welcome to the Repco Mount Panorama 500.

I am proud that our city has an opportunity to host the opening round of the Supercars series. We have plenty to look forward to over an exciting weekend with two 250km races. Drivers, support crews, families, friends, and their supporters will descend on Bathurst this weekend to watch the event and ultimately shop, dine and stay in our city. In turn, this will provide a substantial boost to our local economy and highlight the Bathurst region to our visitors. Bathurst is renowned as the home of motor racing and events such as this prove this fact. It also provides an opportunity for us to demonstrate that our region has so much more on offer for visitors and residents alike. Make sure to visit National Motor Racing Museum this weekend. With over 100 racing cars and motorcycles, as well as other items, the constantly changing selection of exhibits ensures there's always something new to see.
