Inaugural Bathurst TCR 500 race confirmed for November 15th

The Australian Racing Group has confirmed the date for the inaugural Bathurst TCR 500 race. It will be held on November 13-15 this year and feature a standalone 500km race for TCR cars only.

“It is exciting to confirm the date for the inaugural Bathurst International, and we are very pleased with the final outcome,” said Matt Braid, CEO of the Australian Racing Group.

“There were a number of categories that we have racing that we needed to wait for, and this date represents the best chance for drivers and teams from around the world to race at the iconic Mount Panorama.”

The race will require two drivers per car and is open for TCR teams and drivers all over the world.

“The mid-November date gives everyone a long lead time to arrange their calendars and logistics. We know that all of the local competitors in TCR, Touring Car Masters and Trans Am are looking forward to it, and we know that many international guests will do whatever they can to try and knock them off in their own backyard,” said Braid.

The race will be broadcast live globally through the Seven Network.
