Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes and Tony Vilander and Ferrari Maranello Motorsport won today’s Bathurst 12 hr after what can only be called a chaotic event.
After being punted off from the lead, Lowndes swapped driving duties with Whincup who then sliced his way through the field. Ironically enough, he was punted by Red Bull Racing Holden teammate, Shane van Gisbergen.
Despite a penalty, the Kiwi came out ahead of Whincup and the two continued to battle it out for the remainder of the race.
With just a few laps to go the action hadn’t diminished any when van Gisbergen was causing controversy once again by punting off the Porsche.
Given another pit land penalty, Shane then made a critical error and crashed into the wall at the top of the mountain.
Maro Engel, who was driving with van Gisbergen, stormed off in disgust and later told reporters that “This is racing! All I have seen all day is Shane making mistakes!”
A hush fell over the media centre as Engel turned his back and walked away.
We are sure there is more to come….
