Bathurst is a richly photographed account of the most heart-stopping wins, worst tragedies and biggest disputes in the remarkable history of Australian motor racing's holy grail. Renowned racing journalist Gordon Lomas captures it all – from the perennial Holden and Ford rivalry, to the triumphs of legends such as Peter Brock, Craig Lowndes and Jamie Whincup, to the 75-year anniversary celebrations at Mount Panorama.

'Even when I was chasing my career for almost 10 years in Europe, I knew Bathurst was big - special.' Larry Perkins, six-time Bathurst 1000 winner
 
'Superbly written and wonderfully illustrated.' Inside Sport
'A ripper book that gives us snatches of information here, a bit of a yarn there and a ''yer bloody jokin'!'' moment somewhere else.' Illawarra Mercury
