It was the race that had it all - won in the last lap, from last on the grid; a Champion pushing so hard for the win he disregarded his team's orders, the most safety car laps ever completed after a slew of incidents, and four of five manufacturers as the top four finishers.

Throw in a red flag that stopped the race, lining the field in single file on the grid with the teams prepping the cars to be as good as new for the final 100 laps, and you have an amazing eight-hour epic that will go down in history.

Chaz Mostert won with Paul Morris, in just his second start at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, giving Ford Performance Racing back-to-back wins at Mount Panorama, as James Moffat/Taz Douglas brought second home for Nissan, with Nick Percat/Oliver Gavin on the third step of the podium.

Jamie Whincup, who started at the back of the field would not say die as he pushed on forward, ran off track, copped a drive-through penalty, and maintained his Championship lead, despite limping across the line in fifth, as Craig Lowndes tangled with Mark Winterbottom in the closing stages.

Throw in some quick Kiwis with devastating stories - Scott McLaughlin and Shane van Gisbergen both looking the goods until a hit at The Cutting, and a starter motor failure respectively ended both of the young gun's chances,as well asFabian Coulthard recording a 2min05.608 in qualifying, smashing the lap record and becoming the fastest man around Mount Panorama.

We want to know what moments were race defining for you. From the elation to the heartbreak, the passes that didn't quite come off, the incredible saves and slides on the new surface, and the relentlessness of teams and drivers to push- some for the win, others just to make it to the finish!
