How 2022 Bathurst crowd stacked up against all-time record

SUPERCARS has released crowd figures for the 2022 Repco Bathurst 1000.

All up, 195,578 braved the wet weather to be in attendance.

That figure falls short of the record of 207,205 set a decade ago, in 2012.

The most recent Great Race not impacted by COVID-19, the 2019 edition, had a crowd of 201,975.

There was a record broken in terms of the broadcast numbers, however, with Foxtel announcing more than 62.5 million minutes were streamed – the most in history for a Supercars event.

Seven’s free-to-air coverage meanwhile logged an average of 1.36 millions viewers nationally.

“To our fans and the people of Bathurst who supported us in some of the worst weather conditions we have ever experienced at the Great Race, thank you,” said Supercars CEO Shane Howard.

“The contribution of fans, volunteers, marshals, Supercars teams, competitors and officials made this event memorable for so many reasons this year.

“The end-product was once again world-class, both at the venue and for those at home watching the broadcast.

“Thank you to our broadcast partners, Foxtel and Seven, the NSW Government and Bathurst Regional Council, and our fans from around the globe who made the great race live up to its name once again.”
