It's the Melbourne Cup of Australian motor racing. Every one of those first 60 years is captured here in great pictures and fast-moving anecdotes. Follow all legends - Brock, Moffat, Lowndes, Johnson, Skaife, Perkins, Grice, Whincup, Murphy, McLaughlin, Van Gisbergen and many more - around the Mount Panorama circuit.
