WHINCUP OVERCOMES PENALTY TO SECURE CHAMPIONSHIP

Whincup WinsJamie Whincup finished third at Winton Motor Raceway, securing his fourth V8 Supercars Championship.

His Australian Touring Car/V8 Supercars title puts him equal on four wins with Allan Moffat, Bob Jane and Jim Richards, one behind the trio of Pete Geoghean, Dick Johnson and Mark Skaife on five.

Whincup is the first driver since Mark Skaife (2002) to win the title with a round to spare.

Barring the unlikely scenario of a points penalty at the Sydney Telstra 500, the TeamVodafone ace will be awarded with his V8 Supercars Championship at the Sydney Telstra 500 in two weeks time.
