Craig Lowndes won the 2nd race at  Queensland Raceway , capping off a perfect weekend for Triple 8 as he led home team-mate  Jamie Whincup . Lowndes flew off the startline and controlled the 200km sprint at one of his most successful circuits on the calendar ahead of Jamie Whincup, but had dramas communicating with his team.

Linking Lacroix, the team’s technical mastermind and Lowndes in the newly formed TeamVortex garage has proved another smart move by Triple Eight boss Roland Dane. Lacroix makes big calls and Lowndes plays along with unorthodox strategies like calling off a last flying run in qualifying today to save a set of soft tyres, and pitting for a fresh set of tyres against the field in Perth, which earned Lowndes’ first race win of the year.

Lowndes revealed he has had to change his driving style a little to play along but a focus on improving qualifying has been key for him this year.
