About the event
The Baskerville 1000 is a long distance-regularity event and not a conventional race. Points are awarded for each lap time close to the lap time nominated before competition. The team with the most points at the end of competition is the winner of the event.
Teams are comprised of a minimum of three drivers and maximum of six. The event duration is 6 hours, incorporating compulsory driver changes and refuelling stops.
Drivers must hold a Motorsport Australia-affiliated car-club membership and a Motorsport Australia Speed licence or higher. All drivers must have competed in a previous club day or official B1000 practice day prior to competing in the Baskerville 1000.
Entry is open to mass-produced, four-wheeled sedans, coupes or station wagons legally eligible for registration in Australia. Open-top or convertible vehicles are not permitted. Eligible cars shall not be of more than $1000 value when first purchased, and would be deemed roadworthy if submitted to a transport inspection.
Entrants must have a receipt or copy of for-sale advertisement to prove the vehicle purchase price. Parts such as brake pads, spoilers, new tyres, mag wheels added to the base vehicle do not count towards the $1000 limit.
Very limited modifications are allowed to vehicles to assist with performance. NOTE: No semi-slick or R-spec tyres are permitted.
Unlimited modifications are allowed to vehicles in regard to safety modifications (roll cages, fixed-back racing seats, racing harness, etc) provided they are in accordance with Motorsport Australia regulations.

Each team is encouraged to present their car as a replica of a real racecar, or to adopt a race-category inspired theme; eg: NASCAR, V8 Supercar, WRC, Group A, Group C, BTCC etc.
