It's a bumper field for the 2022 running of the Great Race, with the 25 regulars joined by wildcard entries from Triple Eight, Erebus Motorsport and Matt Chahda Motorsport.

Runaway series leader Shane van Gisbergen will head to Mount Panorama as the outright favourite paired with four-time Bathurst 1000 winner Garth Tander.

However reigning Bathurst champion Chaz Mostert may have something to say about that, the Walkinshaw Andretti United driver this year paired with the experienced Fabian Coulthard.

The two Dick Johnson Racing cars, as well as the lead Tickford entry of Cam Waters and James Moffat, are also among the contenders for Great Race glory.

Track action will take place across four days, Supercars staging the first of six practice sessions on Thursday morning.
