Bathurst 1000: Everything you need to know


//

Australia's premier car race, the 2018 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, got off to a soggy start with rain lashing the circuit for opening practice on Thursday.

But it will take more than drizzle to dampen the spirits of Aussie rev heads who have made their annual pilgrimage to see who will be crowned King of the Mountain on Sunday.

Fans have flocked to the Mount Panorama camp ground and are ready for a celebration. While alcohol restrictions are in place to prevent excesses of the past, the allocations of up to a case a day per person seem plenty.

Here’s everything you need to know about the 61st running of the race on Sunday.

HOW MUCH BEER CAN I TAKE?

Race fans who are camping at Mount Panorama can bring their own food and drink to the camping precinct. The alcohol limits for this year include: one 24-can case of full strength beer, or 30 cans of light or mid strength beer, or four litres of wine, or a 750ml bottle of spirits, all per person per day.
