The biggest race of the Supercars calendar is upon us and this year it is doubling as a blockbuster season-finale of a COVID-hit campaign.

The championship has already been decided after DJR/Team Penske star Scott McLaughlin sealed a title three-peat in the last race at The Bend in South Australia.

But, for many, a Bathurst crown remains an equal – if not greater prize – and it’s all on the line at Mount Panorama.
