Latest ever Bathurst 1000 start time confirmed

09/11/2019

The schedule for the 2019 Bathurst 1000 has been released, including the latest ever start to the Great Race.

Supercars has confirmed that the 1000-kilometre enduro will kick off at 11:30am local time.

It’s the latest start time in the history of the Bathurst 1000, 20 minutes later than in recent years.

According to a report on the Supercars official website, the decision was taken to maximise evening sunlight at Mount Panorama, as well as push the finish close to prime time TV windows.

There is no time certain finish for the Bathurst 1000, with both broadcasters, Fox Sports and Network 10, committed to showing the race in its entirety.

The Sunday morning warm-up has also been moved back 20 minutes, from 8:05am to 8:25am, while the 60-minute Saturday practice has been split into two 30-minute sessions, one for primary drivers and one for co-drivers.
