In addition to the well-known Melbourne Cup, the Bathurst 1000 is another celebrated event in Australia.
The great race, as it sometimes alluded to, attracts millions each year who come out to cheer their favorite event.
2020 and this October will be another great time of year with millions again cheering and seeing who wins the race on Mount Panorama.
Missing this, which is also the most unforgiving track event in the world of motorsport, is something you will always complain about for the remaining months until the next one happens again.
For those who don’t have glue, the Bathurst 1000, also known as the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, is a racing event that normally takes place in Australia and has fans not just in the country but around the world.
The first event took place in 1950 when it first took place on Philp Island. In 1963 it was later moved to Bathurst.
The event is attended by professional and qualified drivers who not only compete for the Supercar Championship but also the Peter Brock Trophy. The winner is also known as the King of the Mountain.
Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes have dominated this event for the past 15 years. Whincup, just like its name sounds, has won the event four times.
On the other hand, Lowndes, who was very close to Peter Brock, first won the first trophy in his honor in 2006. He has a total of seven Bathurst wins. His last win was last year when he teamed up with five-time winner Steve Richards.
These 2020 fans expect the expected Whincup and Lowndes partnership to flourish. However, Frenchman Alexandre Premat and Scott McLaughlin are also favorites to win this year’s edition. This year’s edition will be a 62 version of the race with all fans in mind Lowndes, who had the second-highest wins at the event in last year’s edition.
