Finally got a response regarding Bathurst camping for this year - relating to the possible cancellation of the event due to Covid.

quote:
The decision to cancel or postpone any event remains with the promoter and the venues. If Bathurst is cancelled, you will receive a full refund from Ticketek. If Ticketek is notified of any changes to this event we will communicate these with you. More information can be found here.

In regards to the campsite still being yours for the 2021 event, we unfortunately don't have that information right now. If the event ends up being cancelled, the promoters will let us know if that is the case and we will notify customers as soon as we can.


Despite the last sentence, it sounds like it's all go ahead until it's formally cancelled.
You'd have to assume if you bought your spot back - or bought a new spot - you'd be refunded (if cancelled) and hold the rights for the next year.
Otherwise it would effectively wipe the slate clean for 2021, like hell it will.

That's OK then. I thought it had something to do with everyone being so mesmerised by the Penrith Panthers.

I reckon there is a fair chance with no camping there will be no one up the top of the mountain except media and marshals with any crowd restricted to the Chase & Pit Straight only.



don't recall where I read it but think it is front straight only Paul. Chase is no crowd.

Crowd means crowd, not staff.

I'll put it another way. Relative to the NRL, Bathurst is not important to the people of Sydney/NSW. I presume the NSW govt have acted accordingly.

How come the NRL can have more numbers in a smaller space?


1) The NRL is a popular competition, part of the NSW/Sydney culture, and relevant to the wider public of NSW.

2) Everyone is so mesmerised by the Penrith Panthers, they have to make every effort to let in as many people possible to witness the spectacle they produce.


It sounds like you're offering an opinion instead of facts, or just having a lend.

How can the NRL have bigger numbers in a smaller space? Apart from it being easier to manage numbers and distancing in reserved seating compared to congregating in unmarked spaces, my opinion is that the NRL is better at lobbying its way around the NSW Government than other organisations. Until a few days ago, the NRL Grand Final at Sydney's ANZ Stadium was limited to 25% of its 82,000+ capacity, but is now up to 50% capacity (41,000 approx.). Nothing appears to have changed in the interim, apart from Peter V'Landy's lobbying.

The NRL have a pandemic expert on staff to help manage the crowds and government. They also have a controlled, confined space to manage. Bathurst is more like a festival than a sporting event regarding crowd control, this is why it's so restricted along with Supercars desire not to make headlines for the wrong reasons.

+ the fact of low number of infections over a long period of time and Mt Panorama being such an open space, not like a footy field, Gov may have felt stadiums are less risker than Mount Panorama??? Only SC knows why they went this way. SC may have went in a with plan they knew they could win with rather than going for 40k and risk getting nothing if they couldn't convince the gov [ who are still nervous about a blow out Vic style] they could manage it? Plus it would only take some plastered fans to get rowdy and break rule and the WHOLE sport gets tarnished

It was bound to happen but it is still disappointing.

My father has been every year since 1978 and for me, 1992. Missed the 2-litre races. It will be very strange not camping and not having the atmosphere but I can watch it on television.

As others have said, at least the race is going ahead.

I suppose a bigger crowd in a bigger space is harder??? Plus would have to convince NSW gov they can handle what they proposed. They may have asked for more but may have had to compromise?



except that you can have "drive/park' to outside the chase, inside the chase, inside/outside t1, across the top... all no contact, and crowd controlled to a specific area of the track.



Only SC and the Gov what parameters they had to work with, pretty sure they would like to have tried to get as many as there as possible, maybe the Gov were not convinced enough???? in the end they cop the backlash if something goes wrong covid wise. Plus SC run the risk if day 1 everyone moves the seats around and basically plays up they could simply shut the gate on race daynot like the footy where if they play up on one weekend they get a warning and fix it for the next weekend, one QLD NRL game got into trouble for failing to manage their crowd nearly lost future games.

Stadium with fixed seating I supposed, they can marked every 2nd row and 3rd seat as a no go zone which is a bit hard on a grass mound.


I haven't read any of the articles on this but any mention on marshals camping behind the Pits in any of them ??

I also wonder about interstate border crossing to being allowed to attended, especially from the leper colony that is Victoria at the moment, you might need to borrow a boat or swim over the River Murray Trev ??



all patrons will have to come from NSW and ACT. all other borders are closed, will they get 4000 to sit in one spot all four days with no ability to move around and no merchandise ally etc ?
