6 Hour entry list locked in as Easter Enduro countdown commences

Another stunning chapter is set to be added to Mount Panorama’s endurance racing history with the 2023 running of the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour.

The seventh running of Australia’s Easter Enduro has attracted a 66-strong final entry list, spread across the usual array of classes, makes and models.

The 66 entries remain two more than the previous record grid for a Bathurst enduro, set at 64 cars in the 2017 running of the event.

63 cars started last year in a race that saw a stunning battle between Cameron Hill and Tim Slade in the closing stages, before BMWs ultimately locked out the outright podium for the second consecutive year.

This year is the fourth year in total, and the third straight that the race has attracted more than 60 entries.
The fastest cars in Class X are again expected to be the key contenders, with 12 cars representing BMW and HSV.

Among them include the 2019 winners (Beric Lynton and Tim Leahey) and the 2021 race-winning BMW M4.

New additions include Garth Walden Racing stepping up to the outright category with a BMW M3, and Waltec Motorsport with a BMW M2 Competition similar to the car that won last year.

A remarkable 27 cars fill out Class A, split between A1 (Forced Induction) and A2 (Normally aspirated) cars.
A1 includes the usual mix of Mitsubishi Lancer Evo models, Mercedes AMG A45s, Subaru’s and Audi’s TTRS.

A2 includes a race record 7 Ford Mustang entries, including new additions from the Stillwell family, Gomersall Motorsport and long-time Production Car campaigner, Chris Delfsma.

Seven cars make up a diverse Class B entry, while Class C is set to be a highlight with 11 ‘hot hatches’ entered from brands like Renault, HSV, Mini Cooper, VW and Mazda.

Class D looks to be a battle between the Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ brigade and Mazda’s RX8, while a pair of Mazda 3 entries complete the field in Class E.

14 different brands and more than 25 models are represented on the entry list revealed today.
The full driver roster will be announced closer to the event this year.

Last years winners completed 130 laps (807km) – the second most in race history – and were the first team to win having started last.

The 2023 6 Hour will be broadcast live, ad-break free and on demand on Stan Sports as part of their expanded coverage of all Shannons SpeedSeries rounds this year.

The event will also include the opening round of the Fanatec GT World Challenge powered by AWS Championship plus supports from Hyundai Excels, Nissan Pulsar Cup and GT4 / APC Sprint Races.

Tickets, camping and hospitality are on sale now via bathurst6hour.com.au.
