2004 Bob Jane T-Marts 1000
Previous: 2003 Next: 2005

The 2004 Bob Jane T-Marts 1000 was a motor race for V8 Supercars, staged on 10 October 2004 at the Mount Panorama Circuit just outside Bathurst in New South Wales, Australia. It was Round 10 of the 2004 V8 Supercar Championship Series.

The event was the eighth Australia 1000, first held after the organisational split over the Bathurst 1000 that occurred in 1997. The race was staged four days after the 41st anniversary of the first Bathurst 500/1000 touring car endurance race which was held at the Mount Panorama Circuit in 1963. The 2004 event was the 48th race with a lineage back to the 1960 Armstrong 500 held at Phillip Island.

The race was won by 2003 winners Greg Murphy and Rick Kelly driving a Kmart Racing Team entered Holden VY Commodore. It was the sixth consecutive Bathurst 1000 victory for Holden, a new record. The 2004 event was the 32nd and last Bathurst 500/1000 for nine time race winner Peter Brock. He did not get to drive in the actual race however as Jason Plato, his British co-driver in the #05 Holden Racing Team Holden VY Commodore, crashed heavily on lap 31, putting the car out of the race.
