NO SMART suits, frocks or fascinators here.

Australia’s most iconic racetrack attracts a much more laid-back and eccentric crowd than those you see sipping champagne at the racetrack.

While the Bathurst 1000 V8 Super Cars Championship promises a full day of fast cars, punters promise a true-blue approach to fashion.

This year marks the 61st race up the mountain and you can bet people are travelling from all across the country to watch cars drive around the famed track 1000 times.

From the campsite to the racetrack, you really do get to see Australia’s finest at Mount Panorama.

These are the best of the best.
