V8 Supercars Championship 2016, Jamie Whincup Wins In Adelaide
Jamie Whincup won the first race of the 2016 V8 Supercars Championship season in Adelaide, launching into the lead at the start and was never threatened throughout the race.
Whincup won the race ahead of Holden Racing Team’s James Courtney, who leapt past two cars during the pit stop sequence, while Whincup’s new team-mate Shane van Gisbergen grabbed the final spot on the podium on his Triple Eight debut.
Whincup crossed the line after 39 laps to score the first win of the year by almost four seconds. Whincup starts second on the grid for the next race behind Prodrive’s Chaz Mostert, who finished 16th in Race 1.
