The third annual Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour will be held over the Easter long weekend in 2019. 62 production based cars entered the 2018 event and the 2019 event is expected to attract a similar sized grid albeit with more new model cars and big name co-drivers. Supporting the main race will be five race categories, all with large grids and offering non stop on track action over the weekend. The first ever motor race was held at Mount Panorama on the Easter long weekend in 1938. This event continues the tradition of motor racing at Mount Panorama over the Easter long weekend.
