Try the Bathurst 12 hour web site. The FAQ link should answer most of your questions.

www.bathurst12hour.com.au

I don't think you will have any trouble getting a ticket at the gate.

Enjoy your February 'down under'.

Lucky you. Lots of information in this thread and it might be a good place to ask the same question.

It is probably worthwhile contacting the chief marshals - if they're as helpful as when we did the 1000, you might be able to get course car rides etc?

When the road is open before/after the race try and get to drive the circuit - it's an amazing unbelievable experience. We had to do it both ways round - just remember its a normal road, so no apexing the corners!

Agree, the most amazing drive ever!! I did it 5 years ago, but Brian has not been there yet. Still have it on film - Brock's skyline was awesome.

I marshalled at 10.5, which is the exit of McPhillamys - watching the sun come up on race morning was a memory I'll never forget

Best way (see international marshalling thread) assuming you're graded marshal is to dig up chief marshal email address and contact them direct. They'll have a way to get you volunteered and if necessary temporary membership of CAMS etc. I think we had 'trainee' status on our hardcards, but after a short probation (1 practice session) we were treated as experienced
