The most anticipated feature of the event will be the first ever appearance of the S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship at Mount Panorama. The presence of S5000 will mark a momentous and long-awaited return of V8-powered formula cars to the Mountain, returning for the first time since Formula 5000 cars raced on the legendary circuit in 1970.
Also headlining the event will be TCR Australia. Featuring high-quality Australian drivers representing brands from Germany, France, Italy, Japan, and South Korea, the category will race in a blue-riband Bathurst event.
The Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS brings GT3-specification endurance racing back to Mount Panorama. A three-hour, two-driver race will decide the 2021 Australian Endurance Championships.
American muscle will be firing on all eight cylinders with the fast-growing Trans Am category competing in a special, stand-alone event to close its racing year. While the final round of the Gulf Western Oil Touring Car Masters will pit the best Australian muscle cars of the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s against American classics such as the Ford Boss Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.
Adding to the international flavour will be the Porsche Michelin Sprint Challenge for the Stuttgart-built 911 GT3 Cup cars, while the Australian Production Car Series caps off the truly diverse array of cars and categories.
Camping will be available at both the bottom and top of Mount Panorama with the McPhillamy and Paddock campgrounds open. Find more info here.
