Cars roll up at the starting line. Engines are pumping and thumping in time. The green light flashes, the flags go up and the 2013 Bathurst 1000 is under way at the world famous Mount Panorama circuit.


The adrenaline is bubbling as they race for the cup. Drivers will burn through fuel, muscle their way through corners and fly on the straights for more than 1000kms. The V8Supercar Championship race is a race like no other.


By the time you’ve finished reading through this Shannons Supercar Showdown series ‘Bathurst edition’ infographic, you’ll feel like you’ve been racing around the mountain and when those cars speed through the finish line and the flags go down, make sure you don’t miss the next episode of the multi-award winning Shannons Supercar Showdown on channel 7mate (check local guides for times).


Two teams, each comprising four rookies, are headed by Ford Performance Racing’s V8 Supercar drivers and team captains Mark Winterbottom and Will Davison. The eight contestants face more demanding challenges in coming weeks as they compete for the ultimate prize – a testing contract with FPR plus a drive in the Dunlop Series in a Shannons-sponsored V8 Supercar.









Also, if you become a member of the Shannons Club, you will go into the draw for your chance to win a drive and ride experience in the Shannons Supercar Showdown V8 Challenge Car.









Shannons are also giving away the chance to WIN a Ford Falcon XR6 Ute valued at more than $42,000 including 12 months of Shannons comprehensive insurance. Submit your entry at shannonssupercarshowdown.com.au
