Supercars: Craig Lowndes waited for almost two years for this victory
Craig Lowndes returns to Supercars Victory Lane by winning the Race 2 of the Tasmania SuperSprint at Symmons Plains Raceway, the third round of the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
One of the most successful Supercars driver in a history has waited for almost two years for his 106th win in a career. He made it in a dominant fashion, winning a race after starting from pole in the #888 Autobarn Holden ZB Commodore. After 80 laps, he crossed the line 2.3571 seconds ahead of Scott McLaughlin (DJR Team Penske).
Walkinshaw Andretti United’s James Courtney and Scott Pye finished fourth and sixth respectively. They were split by Tekno Autosports’ Jack Le Brocq in the fifth place. Garth Tander (Wilson Security GRM), David Reynolds (Erebus Racing), Nick Percat (Brad Jones Racing) and Chaz Mostert (Tickford Racing) completed the top 10.
The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship continues on April 20-22 with the WD-40 Phillip Island 500.
