THE iconic Mount Panorama has come alive with race fans, teams and drivers for the Great Race.
This year's Bathurst 1000 will welcome some fans for the very first time, while for many thousands of others it's an annual pilgrimage.
We've got journalists and photographers across the Mount and in town to catch all the faces, colour and action of Race Week.
We'll be bringing you stories from the teams, fans and behind the scenes right here.
Scroll through the gallery above to meet some of this year's Bathurst 1000 fans and don't forget to check back in as we'll be adding new photos every day.
