Bathurst 12 Hour statement regarding New South Wales bushfires

6 January 2020

Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour organisers have confirmed there is presently no impact on the event from the catastrophic New South Wales bushfires.

As such, Australia’s international endurance race - which also hosts the opening round of 2020’s Intercontinental GT Challenge Powered by Pirelli campaign - will continue as planned on January 30-February 2.

At present there are no restrictions in accessing the Bathurst region from Sydney.

The event is monitoring the situation daily and is working with the New South Wales Rural Fire Service, NSW Government and Bathurst Regional Council in order to remain apprised of current conditions.

Any changes to the present situation will be communicated to key stakeholders, competitors, ticketholders and fans should the need arise.

Organisers of the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour and Intercontinental GT Challenge join the broader community in expressing their deepest sympathies to those impacted by the bushfires throughout November, December and early January.

A significant number of international entrants have reached out from afar enquiring about ways to support those impacted by the bushfires.

The event is working closely with its charitable partner and key stakeholders on a coordinated fundraising effort, with further details to be announced in due course.
