Without a doubt, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 is the most iconic and highly respected race domestically in Australia, right up there with the best endurance races in the world. The Mount Panorama event is legendary for countless reasons.
For 51 weeks of the year, these local roads have a speed limit of 60kph, with police regularly patrolling the circuit for any motor enthusiast bringing out their inner Craig Lowndes. Yet, when the Supercars roll into town they are hitting speeds close to 300kph down Conrad Straight.
The Bathurst 1000 has such a deep history. Originally known as the Armstrong 500, the race was first held in 1960 on the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. After three years of hosting the event, it was then moved in 1963 to the current 6.2 kilometer Mount Panorama Circuit. Originally a 500-mile (800km) race, it was extending to the current 1000km race as times got quicker and Australia moved to the metric system.
The late Peter Brock, a legend of motor racing in Australia, is the most successful driver at Bathurst. Claiming an unprecedented nine titles between 1972 and 1987, it is no wonder that he has the nickname ‘King of the Mountain.’ Holden has a commanding lead in the head to head stakes, leading Ford 32 victories to 20.
