2002 Bob Jane T-Marts 1000
Previous: 2001 Next: 2003

The 2002 Bob Jane T-Marts Bathurst 1000 was the sixth running of the Australia 1000 race, first held after the organisational split over the Bathurst 1000 that occurred in 1997. It was the 46th race that traces its lineage back to the 1960 Armstrong 500 held at Phillip Island.

It was held on 13 October 2002 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst and was the tenth round of the 2002 V8 Supercar Championship Series.

The race was won by Mark Skaife and Jim Richards driving a Holden Racing Team prepared Holden VX Commodore. The pair were re-united in sharing a car at Bathurst for the first time in seven years having previously won the race together in 1991 and 1992. It was Skaife's fourth win and the seventh and final win for Richards, placing him second on the list of Bathurst 1000 winners. It was also the fourth win for the Holden Racing Team, successfully defending their 2001 victory.

This race is notable for featuring the longest stop-go penalty in the history of the V8 Supercars, with a five minute penalty being awarded to Greg Murphy due to a pit-lane infringement.
