Incredible Finish to the Bathurst 1000

The Bathurst 1000 is the biggest auto race in Australia, and one look at the coverage on SPEED showed why. The V8 Supercars pack a lot of power, and the track, Mount Panorama, is as quick a track as any in motorsports, with blind uphill and downhill corners to boot. After over 6 hours of racing, things came down to just two, with Garth Tander trying to hold off one of V8 Supercars best and defending race champion, Craig Lowndes, as the laps ticked down.

By a mere .3 seconds, Tander won his 3rd Bathurst 1000, while co-driver Nick Percat became the first driver to win Bathurst on his first try since 1977.

Definately a Sports Bucket List Event.  My favorite is the Slab (Carton) per spectator limit.  Great Event to watch live.
