The hopes of seeing a 24-hour race return to Bathurst has been sidelined for now, following a failed bid by Creventic.

The Bathurst Regional Council announced Monday a shortlist of three candidates, out of the initial six that had applied for a possible fifth event at Mt. Panorama.

Speedcafe.com reports that Supercars, Mountain Motor Sports and Australian Racing Group & CAMS, the organization behind TCR Australia, have all moved into the final round of discussions. 

The Dutch organization had placed a bid last month that would have been part of its 24H Series ‘Champion of the Continents’ championship.

Two 24-hour races had been previously held at Mt. Panorama, run in 2002-03, which ultimately led to the modern-day Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.

In addition to Creventic’s failed bid, Ontic Sports Pty Ltd and a proposed 24 hours of Lemons race has also been rejected by the council.
