Chevrolet will return to the event for the first time since 1984, while it also marks the first time that Holden will not take part in the event. All eyes will be on our the Gen3 cars will adapt to the challenges of the Mount Panorama Circuit, with Chevrolet having had the edge over Ford over the course of the 2023 season.

There will be six practice session in addition to qualifying, the top 10 Shootout and a warm-up session before the 161-lap/1000-kilometre race. Unlike in recent Bathurst 1000s, there will be no specified number of compulsory pitstops.

The Bathurst 1000 will be run on soft compound tyres for the first time ever as part of a revamp of the Supercars tyre allocation in 2023, with Gen3 less demanding on corner loads than the previous generation Supercar.

Twenty-eight cars are entered in the event – 15 Chevrolet Camaros and 13 Ford Mustangs – with three wildcard entries from Blanchard Racing Team, Dick Johnson Racing and Triple Eight Race Engineering.
