Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 thrilling climax at Mount Panorama
Will Davison and Jonathan Webb have won the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 in eventful race at Mount Panorama.
Davison held off Shane Van Gisbergen in the final laps of the race to win0.1434 seconds in one of the closest ever finishes.
Co-driver and team owner Jonathon Webb couldn’t watch in the last laps, as his former driver attacked his current driver in an intense finish to the year’s biggest race.
The race ran without a safety car for 92 laps – but the second half exploded, with a massive crash, passes and penalties handed down in the final stages of the race.
Jamie Whincup and Garth Tander looked set to battle to the end, but an incident with Scott McLaughlin ended it for all three, with Tander in the wall, McLaughlin in the sand and Whincup handed a 15-second penalty for his part.
It was the third year in a row Whincup has blown his chances of victory, with the six-time Supercars Champion eventually finishing 11th.
