Full house signs have goneup across Bathurst withrestaurants, cafes, bottle shops and hoteliers rejoicing with establishments full of customers.

Kings Hotel manager Tim Fagan said that any locals who are not supportive ofthe Bathurst 1000and the many fans the event brings only have to look at the economic impact on the city.

After 10 years of working in Bathurst’s hospitality sector, he said it is a huge money-spinner for the city.

“It’s massive and if you don’t take advantage of it you’re mad,” Mr Fagan said.

“Instead of whinging about it we should embrace it.”

Research shows the Bathurst 1000 has a huge economic benefit for the city, with astaggering $25.89 million injectedinto the city’s economyeach year, Western Research Institute general manager Wendy Mason.

It is the equivalent of $6.47m for each of the four main days of the event.
