V8 Supercars Bathurst 1000: guide


V8 Supercars Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 returns to TEN this Friday.

Weekend coverage includes the first all-female team to compete at Bathurst since 1998. ONE is also screening Japanese MotoGP and the Formula 1 Grand Prix Of Russia.

Arguably the biggest V8 Supercars event of the year, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 is an endurance classic with the stars of the V8 Supercars and their co-drivers set to battle it out over 1000km of intense, wheel-to-wheel racing.

All eyes will be on the grid when the V8 Supercars hit the tarmac under race conditions on Sunday at 11.00am AEDT. Can six-time series champion Jamie Whincup make amends for last year’s final lap heart-break or will championship leader Mark Winterbottom take the coveted win?

Also in action this weekend are the Harvey Norman Supergirls. Swiss IndyCar driver Simona De Silvestro and Australia’s Renee Gracie will take to the mountain as the first all-female team to compete at Bathurst since 1998.

  1. Yeah David the title says ‘V8 Supercars Bathurst 1000: guide’ why nothing on the Foxtel coverage which starts on Thursday morning at 9:15am?

    Sorry TEN I’ll be watching it on Foxtel in HD starting some 27 hours earlier.

        • I’m pretty sure that they will have to given the sport-siphoning regulations. They did something similar for the Australian GP which has the same status as Bathurst 1000 on the list.

          • For the Australian Grand Prix Channel 10 had already sold the advertising before the Fox Sports deal was done. Neither could back out of it so Fox had to make the most of a bad situation.

        • According to this announcement by V8 Supercars, the Bathurst 1000 is the only race that won’t be ad-break free.
