DETAILS have been confirmed for the long-awaited return of the Bathurst 1000 street parade.
What has usually been a tradition during the build-up to the Great Race, the street parade has not happened for the last two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In normal years, competing teams would parade their cars up William Street before participating in a drivers signing session with fans out the front of the Bathurst Court House.
