The great unknown

Speedcafe Newscast previews most open Repco Bathurst 1000 ever.

02 October 2023

The most unpredictable ever. That’s what the experts are calling this weekend’s Repco Bathurst 1000 – and for good reason.

Gen3 has added more uncertainty to the Great Race despite Triple Eight and Erebus dominating last month’s Sandown 500.

The latest Speedcafe Newscast podcast hears from popular TV pitlane pundit Mark Larkham on why the 60th anniversary Bathurst 1000 is wide open. Listen here:

Larko’s insight will be more informative than ever during Supercars’ simulcast Fox Sports and Seven telecasts.
Ahead of ‘The Larkometer’ – his famed temperature-rated rankings of the field – Larko gives his overview of what to expect – which more than ever is to expect the unexpected.

‘The Larkometer’ will feature in a special Bathurst eve edition of the Speedcafe Podcast on Wednesday.

In his inimitable fashion, fan favourite broadcaster Larko will run through the field, from his smokey to his sizzlers.

Before then, the Speedcafe Newscast also has comments from Bathurst legend Mark Skaife, DJR hope Anton De Pasquale and wildcard returnee Simona de Silvestro.

Gen3 has shaken the Supercars tree, giving outsiders a chance to upset the heavyweights at Mount Panorama.

The big proviso is that the Ford Mustangs get an 11th hour aero adjustment to keep them in race contention. Don’t rule out a major parity barney in the lead-up to the big race.

As well, Speedcafe Newscast reveals the looming Aussie racing car export success story. It involves a forgotten figure in Peter Brock’s controversial record ninth Bathurst 500/1000 victory in 1987.
