2002 Bathurst 24 Hour

The 2002 Bathurst 24 Hour was the first 24 hour race run at Bathurst. The race started at 4:00pm on November 16, 2002 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst and finished at 4:00pm on November 17.

The race was held for several classes of GT and production car classes and was intended as a showcase for the racing categories promoted by PROCAR, which included Nations Cup, GT-Performance and GT-Production. While there was much speculation about the highly popular V8 Brute Utes class also being eligible there was resistance to the idea and they ran short sprint races as a support category. Ten classes were announced, but only five classes attracted entries.

Class 1

The leading class contained vehicles eligible for international FIA N-GT and the Australian Nations' Cup category. It featured the Ferrari 360, Mosler MT900, Porsche 996 GT3-RS and the controversial 7 litre version of the Holden Monaro which did not have a production counterpart.

Class 3

A mixed bag class of racing cars. Only three BMWs entered, Supertouring versions of the 318i and 320i and a modified M Coupe.

Class 5

A production based class featuring cars from the Australian GT-Performance Car Championship. The entry consisted of BMW M Coupe, Tickford version of the Ford Falcon, HSV version of the Holden Commodore, Mazda RX-7, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Nissan 200SX, Nissan 350Z and Subaru Impreza WRX.

Class 9

A production based class featuring cars from the Australian GT-Production Car Championship. The entry consisted of BMW 323i, Holden Commodore, Honda S2000 and Toyota MR2.

Class 10

A mixed bag of leftovers, it included Future Touring Cars; Holden Commodores and a Chevrolet V8 engined Mitsubishi Magna, a pair of Nürburgring VLN series BMW M3s and a late concession for Mitsubishi Mirage Cup one-make series cars.
