Attention all owners of Bathurst pedigree & V8 Muscle Cars!
This is an open invitation to owners of Bathurst pedigree cars and all V8 Muscle Cars of all makes to join us at Hampton Downs for 2018’s NZ Festival of Motorsport – 4 Guys Autobarn Legends of Bathurst event being held over the weekend of January 13/14 2018.
As part of the celebrations we are inviting along any cars that have raced at Bathurst or are replicas of cars that have raced at Bathurst – cars with any Bathurst pedigree at all!
The invitation is also there for all V8 Muscle cars.
We already have a number of Iconic cars confirmed for the event and we have locked in a host of star drivers from past and present who have conquered the famous Mt Panorama circuit – it will be a motorsport utopia for fans.
Sharing the limelight with our Bathurst Revival Muscle category will be Central Muscle Cars, which already boasts numerous Bathurst pedigree machines of its own and is a crowd favourite. There will also be a large field of Formula Libre and Sportscars along with Historic Formula Ford providing further action on track. Off the track there will be an amazing plethora of cars on display and we welcome any interesting V8 or Bathurst pedigree cars to join our Show and Shine. On Saturday evening there will be a Legends dinner event, with Q & A sessions and a look back at some of the most historic moments from Bathurst with some of the iconic star drivers.

We will assess its pedigree and advise if it has qualified.

We will also be doing a magazine spread of the winner. All drivers will get free entry, passengers will have to pay.
