After an eventful week at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, we have finally reached the day we've all been waiting for.

It's race day - who will be crowned king of the mountain for 2015?

Salute your favourite drivers and wish them good luck before they head out to battle during the drivers parade at 10.00am.

Then the green flag will drop for the Great Race at 11.00am, following warm-up at 8.30am.

But before the 1000 kilometre haul around Mount Panorama, the high-octane entertainment will kick off with the Touring Car Masters, Aussie Racing Cars, V8 Utes and Porsche Carrera Cup all laying down some rubber in their respective races today.

Cast your eyes skywards to see the RAAF FA-18 Hornet flyover Mount Panorama at incredible speeds. And be prepared for the unforgettable noise that follows. Make sure you've got your ear plugs handy at 10.48am, you'll need them.

Australia's Top Gun Joel Haski will thrill crowds with his intense aerial display at 9.15am. Incorporating a mix of stunts and stunning aerobatics, fans won't be able to look away as Joel hits speeds of over 400 km above Mount Panorama.

Woodchips will fly during the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS finals at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 today. The top 16 lumberjacks from across Australia will descend on Bathurst like a ton of wood when the axe is dropped. Buckle up for the original extreme sport with the finals kicking off at 11.15am.

Show your true colours and get kitted out in your favourite team's gear down at Merchandise Alley.

While you're there, check out the Supercheap Auto Track and Mountain store to stock up on everything you'll need to enjoy the event. The store is full of gear to make your trip to the Mountain hassle free, with a huge range of camp chairs, tarps, tents and more. With an additional store at the top of the mountain, you won't go without this weekend.
