MOUNT PANORAMA HISTORY

The race is held in central western New South Wales in Bathurst, which is approximately 200km northwest of Sydney.

The Bathurst 1000 is held on the outskirts of the town at the Mount Panorama Circuit. The circuit is 6.213km of public road, and was first built as a scenic tourist drive in 1938.

Away from the 1000km classic, Mount Panorama has also played host to 12 and 24 Hour endurance events, motorcycle races and even the Australian Grand Prix.

The circuit is as tricky as they come. There are two straights in excess of a kilometre in length — Mountain Straight at 1.111km, and Conrod Straight at 1.916km — which are complemented by tight, fast sections across the top which feature blind corners taken at pace.

BATHURST 1000 HISTORY

This year marks the 62nd running of The Great Race, which began as a 500 mile (800km) event in 1960 at Phillip Island.

The event moved to Mount Panorama in 1963 and was held on the NSW Labour Day long weekend.

The circuit’s most significant alteration occurred for 1987 with the addition of the kink on Conrod Straight, named The Chase.

In 1997, a controversial conflict between AVESCO and race organisers the Australian Racing Drivers’ Club saw separate races — one for Super Tourers, and another for V8 Supercars. By 1999, the Bathurst 1000 had become a V8 Supercars event only.

From 2001, the event has been held on the second weekend in October to avoid clashes with football grand finals.

The winners of the race receive the Peter Brock Trophy, named in honour of the record nine-time winner of the event.

There will be six multiple winners in the 2019 event: Craig Lowndes (7), Steven Richards (5), Jamie Whincup (4), Garth Tander (3), Rick Kelly (2) and Will Davison (2).

Chaz Mostert, Nick Percat, David Reynolds, Luke Youlden, Mark Winterbottom and Jonathon Webb are all one-time winners.

Race distance: 1000km

Race laps: 161

Pit stops: Minimum seven compulsory pit stops

Laps per driver: Minimum 54 laps per driver, maximum 107 laps per driver
