Bathurst 1000 2017: A look at the people enjoying the cars, atmosphere and entertainment at the Great Race.

Every year thousands of Motorsport fans make the pilgrimage to Bathurst and Mount Panorama for The Great Race. 

For some, it’s their first time to the mountain, for others, it’s their 50th and they come with special memories of years gone by. 

They come with their mates, with their wives and with their children. Hotels are booked to capacity, tent cities are established and houses are rented out each and every year. 

Bathurst has a special place in the hearts of many. 

In 2017 the Western Advocate will again to capture the stories of just some of the people that make the journey to the Bathurst 1000.
