“The international field, stars like Valentino Rossi going head-to-head with some of Supercars’ biggest names and incredible cars from brands like Mercedes-AMG, Audi, BMW Porsche and Lamborghini make it a really unique and special event.
“We have a great on-air team assembled to make sure every angle is covered; we can’t wait for people to follow the action via our broadcasting partners at Fox Sports, Kayo and the Seven Network.
“It starts a huge fortnight that will see our team produce more than 40 hours of live television across five days from Mount Panorama, culminating in the Thrifty Bathurst 500 a week later.”
