Repco has been announced as the title sponsor of the 2024 Bathurst 12 Hour, replacing Liqui Moly after a ten-year run.

The announcement was made during the final round of the Repco Supercars Championship in Adelaide. Repco will now have its name associated with Australia’s international enduro event for the first time next year.

This sponsorship deal adds to Repco’s growing support for Australian motorsports, including the Repco Bathurst 1000 and the Repco Supercars Championship.

In 2024, the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour will kick off a ten-day Bathurst SuperFest event, followed by the opening round of the Repco Supercars Championship the following weekend, creating a thrilling start to the motorsport calendar.

Having celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2022, Repco has a long history in motorsport dating back to the 1940s. It famously contributed to Sir Jack Brabham’s Formula 1 World Championships in 1966 with the V8 Repco engine.

The Repco Bathurst 12 Hour is scheduled for February 16-19, 2024.

“Repco is proud to become the major partner of the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour in 2024,” said Repco CEO Wayne Bryant. “Mount Panorama is a circuit with great historical significance, and both the Repco Bathurst 1000 and the 12 Hour event have gained international recognition as must-watch motorsport races.”

The event director of the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour, Shane Rudzis, added: “As Australia’s international enduro, the 12-Hour will not only showcase the Repco brand to a passionate local audience but also to a truly global one. Repco is investing heavily in enhancing the fan experience and access to the sport, which aligns perfectly with the exciting new era of the event. With new car models coming and more developments on the horizon, the Repco Bathurst 12 Hour is set for strong growth in 2024 and beyond.”
