Mount Panorama is one of the worlds great motor racing circuits. As a test of drivers and machinery, it ranks up there with the famous Nurburgring, Spa-Francorchamps and Macau. It's also home to Australias most famous and biggest motor racing event the Bathurst 1000.
But now there is a second major event at Bathurst, and a race four times as long as the 1000.
The 2003 Bathurst 24 Hour was an epic contest as some of the best drivers from Australia and Europe faced the challenge of Bathurst in difficult conditions which included a violent electrical storm that swept across the mountain in the early hours of the morning.
