Why a Bathurst finale is risky business for Supercars
The Bathurst Grand Final may provide Supercars its greatest spectacle yet – but there's a risk it will force the series to face a hard truth.
Would you rather be a Bathurst 1000 winner or a Supercars champion?
It’s a common question in Aussie motor racing circles. If you could just choose one, which would it be? The answer often depends on who you’re asking and what their CV looks like. A serial title winner will tell you a season’s work is worth more than a day’s. At the same time there are plenty that wouldn’t trade their Peter Brock Trophy for anything.
As common as it may be, the question carries a little more pertinence this year. For the first time in two decades the Bathurst 1000 won’t just contribute to crowning a champion, it will play host to the season finale.
