Bathurst

The Bathurst 1.000 is a 1.000 miles Touring Car race that takes place at the Mount Panorama circuit, near Sydney in the New South Wales state in Australia. It is not very well known outside of Australia, but down there the race is as popular as the Le Mans 24 Hours in Europe or the Indy 500 in the U.S.A.

The race has taken many forms and names since the first edition was held back in the early 60’s, when it was limited to 500 miles. The name usually reflects the event’s main sponsor. It is an annual event, except there were two Bathurst 1.000 races in 1997 and 1998:

1963 – 1965 Armstrong 500

1966 – 1967 Gallaher 500

1968 – 1972 Hardie-Ferodo 500

1973 – 1979 Hardie-Ferodo 1.000

1980 – 1987 James Hardie 1.000

1988 – 1995 Tooheys 1.000

1996 – 1997 AMP Bathurst 1.000

1997 Primus 1.000 Classic

1998 AMP Bathurst 1.000

1998 – 2000 FAI 1.000

2001 V8 Supercar 1.000

2002 – 2004 Bob Jane T-Marts 1.000

2005 – today Supercheap Auto 1.000

For street cars, please check the Australian Cars Collection.

The Bathurst Collection table shows the complete list of Bathurst winners. When there’s no 1/18 scale reproduction of the car in question (as of the date of this post), the entry is shown in orange text. For the available model cars, the ones already in the Collection are shown in black text (the links to their pages will be gradually updated as these pages are created), while the ones not in the Collection are shown in grey color.

For many years, this Australian classic has been a Ford vs GM (Holden) duel, and in a similar way the battle is replicated at 1/18 scale between the Classic Carlectables and AutoArt/Biante diecast model makers…
