Bathurst 1000 race preview
The Bathurst 1000 isn't an ordinary race. It is the biggest on the domestic motorsport calendar with nothing coming close to the hype or drama of the great race.
For the 2023 edition, 28 cars will start, with 56 drivers taking on the mountain, even though it's unlikely they'll all finish.
For legendary driver Craig Lowndes, who has won Bathurst 7 times previously, he will be looking to take his 888 car back to the promised land. But it won't be easy for the 49-year-old starting from position 20 with co-driver Zane Goddard.
Standing in his way will be the likes of Brodie Kostecki, who claimed pole by nearly half a second despite making a big mistake in the shootout in the first corner.
The pair of Red Bull's driven by Broc Feeney (qualified 2nd) and Shane van Gisbergen (qualified sixth) will both be highly fancied too.
During the final mornings practice session the Shell V-Power team had trouble changing the front brake pads on their cars.
That's the other challenge with Bathurst it isn't just the battle on the track.
In 2023 V8 Supercars have removed the mandatory 7 pit stops, however teams will likely stop around that many times still requiring fuel, new tyres, new brakes and driver changes.
It feels like the top 6 cars along with Chaz Mostert will have the best opportunity to win.
