201,416 fans have attended this year's Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, the second highest attendance in the history of the event.

V8 Supercars CEO James Warburton said the attendance over the four days of the event was up three per cent on last year's crowd of 195,261.

"This is one of the biggest sporting events in Australia and one of the world's iconic motor races and to crack the 200,000 mark is a great endorsement by our fans," he said.

"I want to thank all our loyal and passionate fans for their outstanding support. I also want to acknowledge all our teams, drivers, officials and volunteers who make this event what it is.

"Thank you also to the NSW Government, Destination NSW, the Bathurst Regional Council and our naming rights partner Supercheap Auto for their fantastic support.

"Our crowds continue to grow with over a million fans attending V8 Supercars events so far this year and millions more watching on television around the country and the rest of the world."
