Australian V8 Supercars Championship, Mostert Closes Points Gap
Chaz Mostert has closed to points gap with his team-mate Mark Winterbottom as the V8 Supercars Championship heads towards the critical Pirtek Enduro Cup. Mostert took a sizeable chunk of points out of Winterbottom’s title lead in a wet finish at Sydney Motorsport Park, in the Pepsi Max Prodrive Falcon.
On Friday Mostert was 292 points behind Winterbottom. Then on Sunday he was just 174 points behind and he also took on Craig Lowndes on Saturday which further stretched his points margin.
The V8 Supercars will next race at the Wilson Security Sandown 500 from September 11 to 13, though most teams will be using their one independent test day in the coming weeks.
