Mt Panorama—the legend itself. Mt Panorama and it’s signature event, the Bathurst 1000 is the crown jewel in Australian motor racing and the ultimate destination for any true blue V8 racing fan.

The perfect mix of speed, endurance and excitement, Mt Panorama ticks every box, making it one of the most exciting and challenging circuits in motorsport.

However, despite its global fame, Mount Panorama isn’t a permanent racetrack. The circuit is made up of public roads that access homes and farms and usually maintains a strict 60km/h speed limit.

This means that few people get to experience Mt Panorama as it should be enjoyed—in the seat of a V8 Supercar at hair-raising speed! However, for a lucky few, dreams can become reality. The mountain plays host to a limited number of V8 driving or hot lap experiences, where lucky participants can join the small and exclusive club of drivers who get to experience the thrill and power of the mountain—just like a professional V8 Supercar racing driver.
