2013 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000

Post by Nascar9fan on Mon Sep 09, 2013 7:24 am

Just before anyone says something, yes, I'm aware that Sandown hasn't finished (though it's this weekend), & that there is a V8 super car thread, however, it is Australia's biggest motorsport race of the year, & opening practice day is 1 month away.
Anyways, after a fantastic 50th anniversary year of The Great Race at the legendary Mount Panorama, Bathurst, which saw Jamie Whincup hold off a late charge from David Reynolds to give himself his 4th Great Race victory, & hand Paul Dumbrell his first Great Race win, the V8 Supercars roll into Bathurst for the 51st running of The Great Race from October 10-13. Heading into this weekend's Sandown 500, Jamie Whincup holds a 55 point lead over 2nd place Will Davison, with the top 9 in the championship separated by 245 points with 5 rounds to go (before Sandown). I'll be up on the mountain for my 9th or 10th time this year (no one remembers if I went in 2002 Laughing )

Frosty earned and deserved this win. Epic run from him after 10 years of trying at the mountain.

Amazing finish. Race is definitely in the top 5 for best races of the year. Hell of a drive by Winterbottom holding off Whincup for 20 laps straight.

Great stuff.
