The final grid for the 2022 edition of the Bathurst 1000 has been decided in unwanted circumstances, with the Top Ten Shootout cancelled due to dangerous weather on Saturday afternoon.
Cam Waters went fastest in Friday’s qualifying and now locks down pole position for Sunday’s big race at Mount Panorama.
The ten drivers who qualified quickest were meant to each have one lap around the famous Bathurst track, but Race Control deemed the conditions too extreme.
