Thu Feb 02 2017

We’ve obviously been pretty comprehensive in covering the lead-up to the 2017 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour, and the big weekend is finally here! Sparesbox is an official sponsor of the race, and we have a huge host of things lined up both on-and-off the track so YOU can get involved as we go behind the scenes of Australia’s International Endurance Race.


We’ll Be at Mt. Panorama All Weekend!



Sparesbox is heading up to Mt Panorama and we’re certain that if you’re there, you’ll see people hard at work in Sparesbox t-shirts and hats all weekend. We’ll be handing out vouchers, giving away hats here and there, and just generally making the Mountain an even livelier place to be! Be sure to come say hi!


Be Sure to Tune In to Our Social Channels

Bathurst 12 Hour 3


If you followed our live blog of last year’s race, you might be happy to know that we’ll be covering the weekend’s action in a much bigger way! We’ll be on top of the race and top 10 shootout live across our blog and twitter feeds, we’ll be snapping on Instagram all weekend, and for the first time, we’ll be on Facebook Live as we take the winners of our Bathurst 12 Hour comp on a money-can’t-buy VIP Pit Tour.


The Sparesbox Service Van Takes on the Mountain


Two Sparesbox Service vans are heading out to Bathurst on Friday morning. One will be advertising our fantastic new mobile workshop service, and one will be tackling the twists, turns and straights of one of the world’s meanest race tracks. Will the service van (and its mystery driver) survive the hot lap?


The Sparesbox Dipper is Ready to Go



We covered this a little while ago, but make sure to look out for our Sparesbox signage all over the famous Dipper throughout the race weekend! We’re joining a list of pretty prestigious names in having our branding across that iconic bit of track, including Bentley and BMW M Sport, so we’re pretty psyched!


You Can Watch the Race from Just About Anywhere



7MATE will be covering the race on the telly, along with the Saturday Top 10 Shootout, Live, Free and in HD! You can also stream both sessions in their entirety online through the 7Mate website, while coverage of qualifying, the Saturday Practice sessions and more can be found over at the official Bathurst 12 Hour Website.
