2020 Bathurst 1000

Contenders for this year's Bathurst 1000 have a chance to show their true pace in the exciting Top 10 Shootout. This is how to watch the mayhem.

SUMMARY: The Top 10 Shootout at Bathurst 1000 will be live on Channel 10 and Fox Sports. If you have access to Channel 10 or 10 play you can easily watch for free. If not, your best option is Kayo Sports which has the most extensive Bathurst 1000 coverage and a 14-day free trial.

The first round of qualifying for the 2020 Bathurst 1000 was held on Friday 16 October, with the drivers ranked in order for their quickest lap during a 40-minute session. But that's really just the beginning of the fun.

The top 10 drivers from that session then participate in the renowned Top 10 Shootout. There's no opportunity for a warm-up, drivers get one lap in their bid to snare pole position. It's edge-of-the-seat stuff and mistakes are out of the question if you want P1 on the grid. There's a bleak outlook for the weather during the Top 10 Shootout, the forecast is currently predicting a high chance of rain.
