With the 2018 Supercheap Bathurst 1000 rapidly approaching, a large number of motorsport fans will look into ways of watching the event live. While the event is on free to air TV in Australia, there is no such an option for other countries. As such, watching the Mount Panorama action online becomes the second best option. Here are the available alternatives.
Watch 2018 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 Live on Foxtel Now
If you are an Australian resident, Foxtel Now is an option. It requires an Australian credit card, but it allows the option to watch the race for free. Foxtel Now offers a 14day free trial after signing up for the service. As long as you unsubscribe before the period is up, you won’t have to pay for it.
The Foxtel Now alternative, however, isn’t available for the fans who want to watch the 2018 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 live outside of Australia.
Watch Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 on MotorTrend on Demand
An option available for viewers worldwide is the American MotorTrend on Demand. It also offers a free 14-day trial, which requires the user to register an account and a credit card number. However, you don’t have to pay if the subscription gets canceled by the user before the period is up.
MotorTrend on Demand owns the rights for the entire Virgin Australia Supercars Championship season. So, if you want to watch the other races, not just the 2018 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, live or on demand, the site charges a $4.99 monthly subscription.
Watch the 2018 Supercheap AutoBathurst 1000 on SuperView
The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship Series offers its own official livestream service, SuperView. Unlike the other two alternatives above, however, it doesn’t offer a free of charge option. If you want the full season coverage, including all practice and qualifying sessions, live or on demand, then SuperView offers the full season package for a $59.95AUD yearly fee. The service is available only for international viewers, residing outside of Australia and New Zealand.
Other options to watch the 2018 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000
If you don’t like the above options, there is also Reddit. The popular website has the /r/MotorsportStreams subreddit, which has a variety of online streaming options available on race day. Another alternative is the /r/V8Supercars subreddit. Plenty of quality streams get posted on the Bathurst 1000 race thread every year, so dropping by it is a good choice.
If you don’t mind a drop in quality, old streaming websites such as VipBox, FirstRow, DrakulaStreams, Cricfree and others are also available. However, it’s highly advised that you install and AdBlocker and take off the pop-ups when browsing these websites in order to avoid malignant programs.
