The Bathurst 1000

If you were to make a list of all the important car and motorcycle races in a year, all over the world, and make a list of all the great tracks in the world, would the Bathurst 1000 on Mount Panorama make it?  Well it should!  In the land of Oz this is their Indy 500, their Monaco GP, their Assen and Mugello.

You can spend hours on YouTube watching videos of V8 Supercars turning laps at this place.  The track looks like a mix of Spa, Road America and Laguna Seca.  This TV package gives you an idea about the history of the race, the track and it's importance to the motorsports culture of Australia.
