Bathurst 1000 champions

620 miles (1 000 km) of complete motor-racing madness. Flat-out all the way, two drivers per car tackle the bends and curves of the 3.9 mile (6,3 km) Mount Panorama circuit in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia the second Sunday of every October as if it is the last race of their lives, chasing down their competitors. Some corners might be blind but the candidates have their eyes wide open on the prize. The Bathurst 1000 is the most famous race in the V8 Supercar Championship. It is known as “The Great Race.” If you can reach 190 mph (300 km/h), you might be in line for the championship. Anything else, go home.
