Jamie Whincup repeats

Jamie Whincup secured his second V8 Supercar title when he crossed the line in fifth place in race one of the final round in Sydney. The 26 year old Victorian had to endure a fair bit over the course of the year; whether or not he'd follow in Marcos Ambrose's footsteps by crossing the Pacific, the tug-of-war over which manufacturer his Team Vodafone car would use in 2010 along with a spirited battle in the points with HRT driver, Will Davison.

But he took it all in his stride as he became the first man since, ironically, Ambrose to clinch back-to-back championships. Since he's staying in V8's next year, he will look to become one of the few guys to win title with different manufacturers (from what I can tell, there's only been four) as the team makes the jump to Holden.

In other news, I found out that SPEED will be showing the V8 Supercars next year...just a week after the actual round. So provided we don't look at any Aussie sport news for a week, we can see the series that launched Ambrose's tin top career, sweet!


  1. (( just a week after the actual round. So provided we don't look at any Aussie sport news for a week )) or Forensic2 not postting a frame by frame after he has watch it. lol..

    I do beleave that many on here will enjoy watching the races, and they do trade paint and don't get sent to the pits for most of it like sissy NASCAR.

    Funny how NASCAR builds the sport with the drivers beating and bangging and the big one but if any driver shows he will use his front bumper they get sent to the corner for being a bad boy/ rought driving. LMAO


  2. Congrats to Jamie -- I did enjoy some of the V8 coverage while vacationing - it is good racing action and all the drivers have such cute accents! LOL
