Aussie V8-Supercars_08

Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes claimed pole positions for V8 Supercars’ season-opening races in Adelaide, as Volvo’s Scott McLaughlin secured a surprising front-row start. Triple Eight duo Whincup and Lowndes dominated the day, with the reigning champion claiming the top spot in the first 15-minute qualifying race ahead of his team-mate. Lowndes, however, fought back in the second heat to beat McLaughlin by 0.1103 seconds, as the Kiwi secured a front-row slot for Volvo in the new S60’s debut in the series.

Whincup, Jason Bright and Winterbottom completed the top five on the race-two grid, ahead of the top Mercedes of Lee Holdsworth. Todd Kelly and Michael Carusso secured seventh places for race one and race two respectively as the fastest qualifiers for Nissan. The first two races will take place on Saturday, with another qualifying session on Sunday ahead of the final race of the weekend.
