How to watch 2020 Bathurst 1000 qualifying live online
It might be an endurance race but grid positions can be crucial for the V8 Supercars at Bathurst 1000. This is when and how to tune in.
Qualifying is often a critical element of motorsport competition across the world. Firstly, grid positions can be vital to avoid tricky early turns and potential collisions depending on the circuit.
That is less so the case at Mount Panorama, the home of the Bathurst 1000, in a race that features 161 long laps. But qualifying can also give drivers an indication of how their car is running and, therefore, can provide a timely boost in confidence.
At Bathurst, the first qualifying session also determines positions for the Top 10 Shootout, which is then used to place the starting positions. These are your viewing options for this year's Bathurst 1000 qualifying session.
