Championship leader Jamie Whincup will be bidding for his sixth individual race win of the year when he lines up in race one at Sydney Motorsport Park on Saturday. The team Vodafone driver holds an 82 point lead over Mark Winterbottom in the 2012 standings, while there are 150 points on offer for the winning driver in each of the races at Eastern Creek on the weekend.
Whincup’s Triple Eight Race Engineering teammate Craig Lowndes will go into the weekend full of confidence after winning both of the races at the Queensland Raceway in the most recent round of the series, at the start of the month. Will Davison is the only other driver to have won a race in 2012 and after opening the season with wins in six of the opening eleven races, will be looking to return to the top of the dais.
