Earlier this year BCCAN received a grant of $5000 via the Sparktank project, an initiative of Skillset and the Office of Environment and Heritage. We used this grant to run a community market research project in which we tested support for the concept of electric car races on Mt Panorama (production and/or dedicated racing vehicles). We did this because we believe that Bathurst's most recognisable icon - the Mt Panorama racing track - must embrace the energy revolution that is now upon us.

Bathurst Community Climate Action has joined the national #StopAdani campaign.
