The Intercontinental GT Challenge has announced that it has extended its agreement with Bathurst to ensure that the Bathurst 12 Hour event will remain the series’s opening round until 2021.

It has also been revealed that next year’s event will retain its slot on the first weekend of February, reverting to a three-day format. Practice will be held on the first day (Friday January 31), while qualifying and support races will take place on the Saturday. The 12-hour event will then begin again early on the Sunday.

In addition, the agreement enables the Australian circuit to benefit from SRO Motorsports Group’s knowledge in balance of performance as well as technical regulations. Bathurst has also announced that the ‘Town to Track’ GT3 vehicle parade will return for this year’s race.
