After a prolonged absence of Special Events at RaceRoom, you'll want us to return with something big, right? Something to awaken you from hibernation after the relaxed festive season...

Well, it's time to wake up, as we present the Bathurst 333!

Our first Special Event of 2020 and boy, you'll need perfect 20/20 vision as you tackle 333km of the infamous Mount Panorama circuit in the newly updated GTR3 class, or the GTR4 class with its recent new additions from BMW & Porsche.

Set a time on the Leaderboard to qualify for the live-streamed main event on 2nd February which coincides with the official Bathurst 12 hour endurance race weekend. You'll need patience and a huge amount of respect for the mountain as FULL damage will be enabled on race day.
