Bathurst week will be bigger than ever this year, with track action for a packed undercard kicking off on Tuesday.

The support categories include GT World Challenge Australia, S5000, TCR Australia, Super2, Carrera Cup, Toyota 86s, Trans Am and Touring Car Masters.

Supercars then hit the track on Thursday with the first of six hour-long practice sessions.

Three of them will be dedicated to co-drivers, while the grid for the Great Race will be decided by regular qualifying on Friday evening followed by the Top 10 Shootout on Saturday evening.

The race itself will start later than ever, with lights out at 12:15pm local times and plans for a twilight finish.

Shane van Gisbergen/Garth Tander, Jamie Whincup/Craig Lowndes, Anton De Pasquale/Tony D’Alberto, Chaz Mostert/Lee Holdsworth and Cam Waters/James Moffat will head into the week as the pre-race favourites.
