Editor’s note: V8X Supercar Magazine #94


October means
 only one thing 
for Australian motorsport fans... the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 is on the horizon!

So as we gear up for the 2016 edition of the Great Race, V8X Supercar Magazine issue #94 is here to help your pre-event preparation with a team-by-team preview, key talking points for the endurance races, the numbers that matter and the honour roll of the event.

Whenever we head to
 Mount Panorama, it's hard to forget about the 'King of the Mountain'. Peter Brock and Bathurst are synonymous with one another. So it's hard to believe we've already reached a decade since Peter Brock's tragic passing on September 8, 2006.

Ten years on, we remember his legacy with Mark Fogarty and take a look back at the top fives of Brock's incredible career.

Brock's protégé Craig Lowndes commemorated Brock's passing with an emotive win in 2006, a decade after his first Bathurst win.

He remembers those wins in his regular column, while we examine the turning point that event proved for Triple Eight Race Engineering.

Lowndes also joins many of his colleagues in sharing their first memories or experiences of Mount Panorama, while Mark Fogarty also interviews Lowndes' co-driver and fellow Bathurst winner, Steven Richards.

Elsewhere, we celebrate the underdog winners of the Great Race in honour of the 30th anniversary of Allan Grice and Graeme Bailey's win in 1986; feature the career of team boss Jeff Grech; pay tribute to the Bathurst shootout; and rate the best internationals at Mount Panorama.

Remember, V8X Supercar Magazine is also available in digital form in the official 
V8X app (in the App Store
and Google Play), online at DigitalEdition.V8XMagazine.com.au and in the Magzter
app store. And keep up to date with the 2016 Supercars season and interact with us on our social media channels, @V8X_Magazine on Twitter and at facebook.com/V8XMagazine on Facebook.
