The Bathurst 1000 is without a doubt Australia's most iconic motorsport event. It's so ingrained into Australian history, most simply know it as The Great Race.
Officially the track is called Mount Panorama and it's an unforgiving circuit. There's little margin for error, especially when cars are travelling 300km/h down Conrod Straight.
Drivers compete in pairs and race 161 laps of the circuit. This equates to 1,000 kilometres, hence the name Bathurst 1000. Teams race for the title of King of the Mountain and the Peter Brock Trophy. The moniker King of the Mountain stems from the nickname given to Brock, who is the record holder of most wins at Bathurst with 9.
When is the 2023 Bathurst 1000?
The big event runs from Thursday 5 October through to the official race day on Sunday 8 October. The Bathurst 1000 race itself is scheduled to begin at 11:15am AEDT on the Sunday.
How to watch Bathurst 1000 live in Australia
The entire Supercars Championship season has been live and exclusive to Kayo Sports and Foxtel. Free-to-air broadcaster Channel 7 also has limited access to select races, including the Bathurst 1000.
It's worth noting that only Foxtel and Kayo won't have ad breaks during the race. Both platforms also have a special channel dedicated 24 hours a day to all things Bathurst.
Subscription services Kayo Sports and Foxtel will have full running coverage of the entire weekend.
Channel 7 and 7plus meanwhile will only show the action from Friday to Sunday and its coverage starts a couple of hours later than Foxtel and Kayo on the Friday and Saturday.
Watch Bathurst 1000 on Channel 7
As we mentioned Channel 7 will show the Bathurst 1000 race. There will be ads throughout the coverage, which is something important to take note of for a race that doesn't stop. If you're not fazed by that or are a casual motorsports viewer, simply watch on Channel 7 or 7plus. The network is also showing build-up action throughout Friday and Saturday.
Stream Bathurst 1000 on Kayo
Kayo really is the only option for diehard Bathurst fans. For one, it will show all 4 days of the Bathurst 1000 action.
It has a whole range of special features you won't find anywhere else. RaceView gives you a range of alternative camera angles, including Heli-Cam channel and Co-Pilot Cams. The Race Centre Channel allows you to keep track of the action and see essential stats, special data and live leaderboards.
There are 20 mini classic Bathurst races for you to enjoy on demand.
These are alongside the usual Kayo features such as SplitView, a Key Moments timeline and Interactive Stats.
There are 3 subscription options for Kayo: $25, $30 and $35 a month for 1, 2 and 3 simultaneous streams respectively. A 7-day free trial is available for new customers.
Stream Bathurst 1000 on Foxtel Now
Foxtel Now is another option to stream the Bathurst 1000. It's a good option if you're after more than just the Sport pack. Users will have access to a mix of entertainment content with the mandatory base Essentials pack. This brings the bill to $54 a month. There is no longer a free trial.
Your subscription will allow you to watch on the go with the Foxtel GO app on iOS and Android devices. Otherwise you can watch on the Foxtel Now box, Android TV, Telstra TV, Playstation 4, Chromecast, AirPlay, PC and Mac.
Watch Bathurst 1000 on Foxtel iQ
Foxtel iQ is the only way to watch the Bathurst 1000 in 4K, although it is significantly more expensive than Kayo Sports. New customers need to combine the Sports HD pack with the Foxtel Plus package, for a total of $77 a month.
