Bathurst 1000 - 2017

Post by Braldy » Thu Oct 05, 2017 10:04 am

Bathurst 1000: The full entry list for the 2017 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000

A TOTAL of 26 Supercars will head to Mount Panorama to chase victory in this year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.

The entire field is made up of full-time competitors in the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, with no wildcard entrants added to the field for the first time since the 2008 event.

Just two of the 52 drivers in the field hail from outside Australasia, with Alex Premat and Simona De Silvestro again the only international drivers on the grid. However, that number swells to seven when factoring in racers from New Zealand, led by current championship leader Scott McLaughlin and reigning series champion Shane van Gisbergen.

Four rookie drivers are making their Great Race debuts this year, with 17-year-old Alex Rullo the youngest driver to take part in the race since Sandown 500-winner Cam Waters made his debut in 2011. Rullo is joined by reigning Dunlop Super 2 champion Garry Jacobson, Todd Hazelwood and Richard Muscat in the rookie class of 2017.

Holden once again dominates the entry list with VF Commodores making up over half the grid (16), with cars from Ford (6) and Nissan (4) completing the roster.

As with recent years, the race will form the second leg of the three-race Pirtek Enduro Cup as well as being the 11th event of the 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars championship.

The Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 takes place at the Mount Panorama Racing Circuit from October 5-8.

The first practice session is underway. Yay.

What will the mountain throw up this year? A spectacular crash? A kangaroo or two on the track? Who knows but nothing is suprising around Bathurst.

My prediction is a DJR 1st and 2nd finish with a few seconds on 3rd so they can cross the line in formation.

Isn't it tradition for a kangaroo to come out one the track at least once furing the race.

Apparently they have put roo nets across the mountain so we may break tradition this year.
