2021 Hi-Tec Oil Bathurst 6 Hour

The Easter weekend signals a return to production car endurance racing to the mountain after last years race was cancelled.

62 cars have entered the race, with the likely winner to come from Class X which is dominated by BMW.

Unlike the recent Supercars round from Sandown, you can watch this race live on free to air TV and not at some ungodly hour on this most holy weekend.

Hope all who have entered are able to take part, depending on what happens with lockdowns and restrictions North of the border.

FTA is important for some, less so for others. Personally I don't watch FTA anymore (although I DO use their respective streaming apps to catch up on things I want to keep track of). I know many, many people who like me, no longer watch live FTA but for those who do, good to see that they can check out the 6 hour etc.

Important for some, namely sponsors

No more than 15mins of ads per hour, as per the law and as it’s been for decades

Not digging at all - chill, just chill

Not important for everyone and not important for every sponsor - depends on the demographic they are chasing.

No negativity or digging from me at all ole fella!

The 6hr was live on Foxtel in 2018 and 2019..... one guesses there is a reason it has moved up to FTA this year in seek of a larger audience?

Might have a bit to do with the change of organiser from Yeehah to ARG.All ARG events are exclusive to 7.

Brisvegas lockdown ends at noon today (Thursday).

Good news for the 6 hour, all those people from Brisbane should be able to head down as long as NSW govt doesn't require them to quarantine or something like that.

I would not be jumping in my car to travel from Brisbane to NSW this weekend. Brisbane might be out of lockdown but there are restrictions on those travelling.
Quote:
Those from the Greater Brisbane area must not enter NSW.
Returning NSW residents from that area must quarantine upon arrival.

Thanks but that info is out of date - only 2 days old but has now changed with the lockdown removed from Brisbane.

Unless you've been to one of the risk sites, online form is the go - full details here on the NSW Government website.

The entry looks pretty good.The entry for the 2019 6 Hour was a disgrace and way down on quality compared to the previous 2 years.Go past Lynton and Sherrin and it was poorer standard than a state round.This looks to be on a par to 2018.
Great support classes which are a bigger attraction than the 6 Hour-TCR,GT and TransAm.
By the way for those precious people worried about ads on fta have they ever heard of DVD recorders?Set it to record,start watching 2 hours later,fast forward through the ads,talking heads etc and you will catch up by the end saving 2 hours of your life.
Hoping for good weather for my trip there this weekend.

Dumb question department, is it a 6 hour race in time or a minimum number of laps?
