This is one of those epic drives. Cruising up through the Blue Mountains on Bells Line of Road, which climbs out of Richmond up through Bilpin with ample helpings of delicious corners. The upper section of Bells opens up to some 80 and even 100 zones before you descend down into Lithgow and out West towards Bathurst on the highway. Bell’s is one of my favourite bits of road, nice and flowy in a Supra and very scenic.
Food wise, we’ll have a BBQ in the park near the National Motor Racing Musuem to fuel everyone’s bodies up for the drive back home, more details on the Facebook post on lunch arrangements. If you’re planning on attending this event and have any dietary requirements please post up on the event page so we can cater for you.
Last year was my first visit to The Mountain and I was impressed. You can drive the full Bathurst Track, it’s tight, really tight and there are some bits where the road just falls away from you. It’s very hard to not plant it up Mountain Straight or Conrod…I can see why so many professional drivers list Bathurst as one of their favourite road courses. Keep in mind it’s a public road, speed limit is 60, please adhere to all road rules and speed limits on this cruise.
