Holden dark horse Nick Percat has won his first Supercars race since 2016 by eclipsing Jamie Whincup in the seven-times series champion’s 500th career start.

Percat started the first of two Sunday races at Sydney Motorsport Park from sixth but flew past Whincup, who led from pole until lap 23.

It was the 31-year-old Brad Jones Racing driver’s third career victory from his 200th start and first since an Adelaide 500 triumph four years ago.

F1 2020, Formula One, Austrian Grand Prix: Daniel Ricciardo won’t be frozen out by Renault before McLaren switch

Published

Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul says Daniel Ricciardo will still play a crucial role in the team’s development despite leaving at the end of 2020.

Ricciardo called it quits at Renault before turning a wheel in anger this year, opting to join long-term admirers McLaren for 2021.

Such a move historically sees the wantaway frozen out of development discussions and relegated to No.2 driver status.

Abiteboul, however, says neither will be the case for Ricciardo, whose experience will be milked by the French manufacturer until the very end of his lucrative contract.

Van Gisbergen came home strong but was left to rue aerowash as he failed to complete an overtake in the closing laps, and came second to McLaughlin by just 0.180 seconds.
