Saturday Press Conference: Sandown 500 | Supercars Championship 2019

Starting from pole after Craig Lowndes’ triumph in the earlier co-drivers race, Whincup got away cleanly and quickly opened up a comfortable margin at the front of the field.

By the end of the race, that buffer had grown to 7.3804 seconds to runner-up Andre Heimgartner, who scored the best result of his career to book a front-row grid slot for tomorrow.

The 11 drivers who started on slicks all lost out, finishing behind all 13 wet-tyre cars still running. Cameron Waters was the best of the slick runners in 14th.

David Reynolds passed Scott McLaughlin for third to join Whincup and Heimgartner on the podium.

The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship (formally Australian Touring Car Championship) is the premier motorsport category in Australasia and one of Australia’s biggest sports. Globally, it is recognised as the best touring car category in the world and a leader in motorsport entertainment.
