Bathurst 1000, 12 Oct 2014

Ford's Chaz Mostert has triumphed at the Bathurst 1000, holding off a short-of-fuel Jamie Whincup to claim his first title in the Great Race.
Mostert came out on top in a chaotic race which saw a one-hour stoppage to repair a damaged section of the Mount Panorama circuit on Sunday. Remarkably, Mostert only led from the final lap after he and co-driver Paul Morris started last on the grid. No driver had previously won at Bathurst from further back than 19th - bettering the feats of Peter Brock, David Parsons and Peter McLeod.
Nissan's James Moffat finished second, ahead of third-placed Holden driver Nick Percat. Whincup’s Holden sputtered to the finish line in fifth place.
