Bathurst 1000, Triple Eight pit strategy, Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes

Published

on

In a Bathurst blockbuster that went for nearly six and a half hours, a five-second fuel stop proved the difference for the Red Bull Holden Racing Team and the #888 in winning the race.

While conjecture remains over whether Fabian Coulthard’s Safety Car go-slow influenced the outcome, with Scott McLaughlin holding on to win for DJR Team Penske in a final-lap dash, the factory Holden squad took a series of gambles — and produced errors — they would rue by race’s end.

The ‘dream team’ pairing of Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes in the #888 entry started fourth, and finished fourth. In between lights-out and the chequered flag, at times you could have pencilled them in for the win — but they would finish where they started.

Supercars news 2019, Sandown 500 2019, Craig Baird, van Gisbergen De Pasquale video

Published

Mark Skaife and Lee Holdsworth have applauded Supercars umpire Craig Baird’s post-race admission of guilt after he incorrectly handed Anton De Pasquale a penalty at Sandown last weekend.

Supercars driving standards advisor Baird admitted he was wrong to penalise De Pasquale in the Saturday primary drivers sprint race, with the Penrite Racing young gun wiped out at Turn 1 by Shane van Gisbergen.

Van Gisbergen slid into the side of De Pasquale in slippery conditions, with both cars spinning. De Pasquale recovered to the fringe of the top 10, while van Gisbergen crawled back to the pits into retirement.

Mark Skaife hopes Scott McLaughlin can celebrate his Supercars title win despite admitting the Supercars champion-elect’s Bathurst win is “tainted”.

Four weeks on from the DJR Team Penske team orders controversy which cast a pall over his breakthrough Bathurst win, McLaughlin’s name was again thrown up in lights when it was revealed he had been disqualified from the Bathurst qualifying and Top 10 Shootout results over an engine breach.

McLaughlin and co-driver Alex Premat were relegated to the rear of the grid for Sunday’s Sandown 500, which after a finish of ninth, saw the 26-year-old clinch a second straight drivers’ title.

Published

Not all highlights are wins, and the retiring Jorge Lorenzo put that into action when he revealed one particular moment stands alongside his greatest successes on track.

The Spaniard confirmed the 2019 season will be his last, and one he would rather forget following poor form and devastating injuries.

However, for all his 2019 troubles – which include no top 10 finishes and a broken back – nothing could deny rivals and media standing to applaud the retiring Lorenzo at the end of his press conference ahead of the season finale at Valencia.
