    While the race itself doesn’t start until 11:10am, there have already been three days of action on the mountain, which capped off yesterday with Scott McLaughlin claiming pole position and breaking the lap record in the top ten shootout.

    Before that, the action will get underway from 7:30am with the support categories, while the Supercars themselves will have a warm-up at 8:05am.

    How to watch the race on TV

    The race will be broadcast live for Australian viewers on two channels. The first of those is Fox Sports, who have the rights to every race, session and support category race throughout the Supercars season.

    The other option will be on free-to-air TV through Network Ten. Following is a guide to broadcast times for the day of the race, considering the racing starts at 7:30am (AEDT) with the Toyota 86 Racing Series.

    Channel 10 Fox Sports
    7:30am – 6pm 7:15am – 6pm

    While Fox Sports normally don’t have ad breaks during the race, they are under contract to include them tomorrow when Ten go to a break. Fox will split screen during those breaks though, having the Supercars and ads running at the same time.

    To watch the coverage on Fox Sports, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription with the sports package included.

    How to live stream the race online

    If you are in Australia, then there will be only one way to stream the Bathurst 1000 online, and that will be through Foxtel’s dedicated streaming applications.

    Foxtel Now is the best option if you only want to stream the channels of Foxtel. They offer a streaming service with the sports package starting from $29 per month.

    If you already have a TV subscription to Foxtel, then your best bet is to use the Foxtel app which should be free to use with your login details.

    Both applications are available to use on any device you may own, including mobile, table, desktop and laptop.

    For those in New Zealand, you can use Sky Go to stream the race, while those outside the Supercars’ main countries of Australia and New Zealand can use Superview.

      Television channels in New Zealand encourage the viewing public to change to free view free to air tv but are not prepared to pay for the rights to screen top sporting event sutch as bathurst car racing or formula one gp or live rugby .Its about time the viewing public had a say instead of being screwed by sky tv
