The latest instalment of the Inside Line – A Season with Triple Eight will delve into Craig Lowndes’ emotional 2006 Bathurst 1000 victory.

The fourth episode of the highly anticipated series focuses on the brilliant career of the seven-time Great Race winner.

Viewers will be given Lowndes’ perspective of the 2006 Bathurst 1000, which is arguably one of Mount Panorama's greatest and most emotional races.

The biggest crowd in the event's history descended on the Mountain to witness Lowndes honour his late mentor Peter Brock in victorious style.

The three-time Supercars champion recounts his never-before-seen reaction to receiving a hug from Bev Brock before the race and steering Brock’s 1972 race-winning Torana in a parade lap before the start.

The episode includes vision from the state funeral held for nine-time Bathurst winner Brock, as well Neil Crompton’s moving eulogy to the Hall of Famer.

"It is probably the most emotional race that I’ve had to do, and it will always be the best victory that I’ll ever achieve,” Lowndes said.

"There’s no doubt that for me, it’s a race I look back on and am most proud of.”

The one-hour episode also follows how Lowndes’ was recruited by Triple Eight Managing Director and Team Principal Roland Dane in 2005, to achieving 100 wins, through to his emotional announcement of his retirement in 2018.

Exclusive interviews with Dane, Shane van Gisbergen, Jamie Whincup, Ludo Lacroix, and Scott McLaughlin give insights into some of the most iconic victories of Lowndes’ career.

Episode four of the seven-part series will premiere on Fox Sports 506 and Kayo on Wednesday.

The one-hour episode will air on Fox Sports (Channel 506) at 7:30pm AEST.

An episode of the docuseries will screen every Wednesday night at 7:30pm AEST until the week of the Repco Bathurst 1000.

There, the final two episodes will screen back-to-back.

In a first for international fans, the latest Inside Line episode can be viewed each week on SuperView from 7:30pm AEST each Friday.

Further broadcast information for the Seven Network will be announced soon.
