Everything you need to know about this year’s Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama

Start. Your. Engines.

The biggest race of the Supercars calendar is upon us and this year it is doubling as a blockbuster season-finale of a COVID-hit campaign.

The championship has already been decided after DJR/Team Penske star Scott McLaughlin sealed a title three-peat in the last race at The Bend in South Australia.

But, for many, a Bathurst crown remains an equal – if not greater prize – and it’s all on the line at Mount Panorama.

Here’s everything you need to know about this year‘s Great Race.
