“The contribution of fans, volunteers, marshals, Supercars teams, competitors and officials made this event memorable for so many reasons this year.

“The end-product was once again world-class, both at the venue and for those at home watching the broadcast.

“Thank you to our broadcast partners, Foxtel and Seven, the NSW Government and Bathurst Regional Council, and our fans from around the globe who made the great race live up to its name once again,” he said.

The successful event comes after Supercars announced Battery World as a Bathurst 1000 Partner.
