2020 Bathurst 12 Hour Live Stream and Free to Air TV Guide


Bathurst 12 Hour Free to Air TV Schedule

The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, one of the world’s premier GT sports car events, is returning to Mount Panorama bigger and faster than ever.

The eighteenth edition of this prestigious motorsports event is one of the biggest GT and Supercar races on the Australian calendar, and will see a thirty car field of international and domestic drivers competing on one of the most unforgiving tracks in the world of endurance car racing. This year’s race takes place on Sunday, the 2nd of February, and you won’t have to miss a key moment using the options listed here.

2020 Bathurst 12 Hour Preview

Last year’s Bathurst 12 Hour saw forty cars start the race, with only 27 able to finish as the mountain put the best engines in the world to the test, while the safety car was only required three times making for great non stop racing conditions. The race was one of the closest in history, with only eight seconds separating the first three teams over the line. Earl Bomber Motorsport, featuring the three-pronged driving line up of Dirk Werner (Ger), Dennis Olsen (Nor) and Aussie Matt Campbell in a Porsche 911 GT3 claimed the overall win. Second place went to the R-Motorsport outfit in their Aston Martin Vantage, whilst third place was taken by Mercedes AMG, making it another great year for German manufacturers.

This year’s race, as in 2019, will again see an increased number of Australian V8 Supercar stars, with more than a dozen drivers confirmed. Names include the likes of Craig Lowndes, Garth Tander, Tim Slade and current V8 champion Scott McLaughlin. There are also some big international drivers from the world of endurance involved, with the likes of Laurens Vanthoor, Jordan Pepper and Christopher Haase arriving with a point to prove behind the wheels of the more fancied teams.
