FAST FACT

Six different drivers – Garth Tander, Mark Winterbottom, Greg Murphy, Will Davison, Jamie Whincup and Shane van Gisbergen – have taken the last six Bathurst 1000 pole positions.

All drivers compete for the Peter Brock trophy at Bathurst, though since its inception in 2006 the trophy has been the exclusive domain of three teams: Triple Eight Race Engineering, Holden Racing Team and Prodrive Racing Australia.

Triple Eight Race Engineering have five wins (2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012), while HRT (2009, 2011) and PRA (2013, 2014) have two apiece since the trophy was created following the death of the nine-time race winner Brock in September 2006.
