12-hour track tour

MOUNT PANORAMA is starting to come to life as preparations for the Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour continue at full pace.

The circuit itself is in a state of change as temporary additions to the already impressive facility are put in place for use this weekend.

The circuit is also looking spectacular with a majority of the signage in place for the weekend ahead.

It gives the circuit an all together different look to what fans may be used to – so here’s a look around the magic 6.213 km circuit as the signage gurus put their final touches on the circuit ahead of on-track activities commencing on Friday morning.
