V8 supercars wild island bash
V8 Supercar championship front-runners Jamie Whincup and Will Davison became involved in a spectacular crash at Phillip Island last Saturday which set-back both their V8 Supercar title hopes
In wild fender bending racing, V8 Supercar championship front-runners Jamie Whincup and Will Davison became involved in a spectacular crash at Phillip Island last Saturday which set-back both their V8 Supercar title hopes. Davison crashed straight into Whincup's Vodafone Holden while it was leading with just three laps remaining from the finish.
Saturday's wild racing was marred by accidents and 4 safety car periods as Will Davison in the FPR Ford took the lead 25 laps in and held on keeping in front of pole sitter Craig Lowndes' Holden which after pitting for fresh rubber mounted a late challenge.
A safety car restart late in the race led to mayhem behind Winterbottom, with Shane van Gisbergen sliding off the track as a pack of cars followed suit. Winterbottom went to the lead and won the race, Van Gisbergen finished second, with Slade third - Fords 1, 2 and 3 podium finish.
On Sunday, Ford driver Will Davison powered back into the lead of a V8 Supercar championship. Davison put aside the collision with Whincup which destroyed his car on Saturday to win Sunday's race. It was his sixth win in 11 races this season and put him back ahead of defending champion Jamie Whincup and Ford team-mate Mark Winterbottom with the top three drivers separated by just 29 points. Fast finishing Vodafone Holden driver Craig Lowndes and Jason Bright's BOC Commodore came in second and third while Whincup picked up some consolation points finishing in fifth.
