Jamie Whincup bounces back at Castrol Gold Coast 600

Jamie Whincup has put his Bathurst disappointment behind him with a commanding win at the Castrol Gold Coast 600 on the streets of Surfers Paradise.

The six-time Supercars Champion stormed home ahead of teammate Shane van Gisbergen to keep his 2016 title hopes alive.

Whincup and Paul Dumbrell finished ahead of Van Gisbergen and Alex Premat by nine seconds with Scott McLaughlin and David Wall in third place.

Van Gisbergen and Premat’s second place sealed the Pirtek Enduro Cup for the pair following strong performances at the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and Wilson Security Sandown 500.

Van Gisbergen still leads Whincup by 148 points in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship with two rounds to go as the Red Bull teammates go to head to see who will be crowned champion.
