Supercars Media and Gravity Media are readying to deliver the biggest Bathurst television production.

Supercars and Gravity will combine to broadcast this weekend’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

Gravity Media is the world-leading global provider of complex live creative production and media services.

This weekend’s event will feature a whopping 199 television cameras.

The cameras range from on-track, in-car, in the pits, around the track, embedded in concrete kerbs and walls, in the air and across sections of the track on a wire.

The broadcast accesses four state of the art high definition outside broadcast trucks, 52 kilometres of broadcast cable and a total production crew of 257.

Supercars Media and Gravity Media will combine to capture every moment across a total of 2500 minutes of television coverage.

This weekend’s broadcast also includes portable and specialty extreme super slo-mo cameras.

There will also be a 'fly-cam' covering 450 metres across Conrod Straight and The Chase.

This year’s event will be broadcast on Fox Sports and the Seven Network.

The event will also be broadcast around the world via Supercars international broadcast partners and SuperView.

The 2022 event is the 10th for Gravity Media’s broadcast facilities and technology collaboration with Supercars Media.

“This year we are delivering the biggest production of the Great Race we have ever put together,” said David Tunnicliffe – Supercars Head of Broadcast.

"Nearly 200 cameras will bring to fans every single inch of the race track, ensuring viewers are right at the heart of every moment that will decide this year’s King of the Mountain.

“We are also incorporating new initiatives into the broadcast to maximise the insight provided to viewers, like crossing to pit lane during sessions to talk directly to team owners, drivers and team personnel via headset to get their view on the action as it happens.

“Leading into the event, the Bathurst Channel on Fox Sports 503 will be filled with hours of content that will prepare fans of all kinds for Sunday’s Repco Bathurst 1000.

"We will delve back into history and celebrate Holden’s final Bathurst, the 50th anniversary of Peter Brock’s first Bathurst win, the 30th anniversary of Jim Richards making himself known to the fans on the podium, and every other great moment that makes this the Great Race.”

Ben Madgwick – Director, Media Services and Facilities at Gravity Media added: "Gravity Media is pleased to be the technical partner for all of Supercars broadcast needs, and especially the pinnacle event, the Repco Bathurst 1000.

“This year marks the tenth anniversary of Gravity Media’s convoy heading to Mount Panorama and we look forward to working once again with Supercars Media in delivering one of the world’s great motorsports events to a global audience.

“Supercars is a very important client for all of us at Gravity Media, as their thirst for innovation year in and year out drives our teams to strive to develop and create new ways to immerse our broadcast technology with the racing action.

"This ongoing desire for innovation and delivery of results cements our reputation as a leading force in specialised broadcast services and facilitation.”

Cars will hit the track at Mount Panorama for Practice 1 on Thursday.

Tickets for the Repco Bathurst 1000 are available on and Ticketek.
