How to watch 2020 Bathurst 1000 Top 10 Shootout live and free
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.
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.
