The Bend has given a spin to the Supercars championship race.
Holden & # 39; s Shane van Gisbergen has taken the lead lead from Ford & # 39; s Scott McLaughlin after pole-sitter Jamie Whincup won the 200 km race in the Supercars round at Tailem Bend, an hour's drive from Adelaide.
Seven-time series champion Whincup eliminated The Bend SuperSprint's 41-lap Sunday afternoon, over 11 seconds ahead of Gisbergen, with Holden's Dave Reynolds third.
But Whincup's team-mate of Gisbergen was the big mover on the heavy eight-kilometer-long course of 4.95 kilometers and took a run of nineteen points ahead of the jump-in McLaughlin, which ended on a far-flop 10th Sunday.
McLaughlin had a narrow 41-point advantage before Sunday's race, which was watched by 17.100 fans, extending total participation to 41.250 for the debut three-day round. Van Gisbergen had already wiped out the lead from fellow Kiwi McLaughlin, who started the round with a 89-point advantage by winning the 120-kilometer race of Saturday.
