Red Bull finish one-two in 250th round start, the perfect way to celebrate


In the Brisbane outfit’s 250th round start, Shane van Gisbergen and Jamie Whincup have finished one-two under lights in the opening race of the Armor All Sydney SuperNight.

It could have been a different story if a few things had gone rookie Will Powers way, but sadly a disastrous pit stop and stripped wheel nut took away the possibility of a fairytale victory after securing his first pole earlier in the afternoon.

From there, the Red Bull drivers had a perfect race with the only passing done when Shane van Gisbergen overtook Whincup with a few laps to go and charge to victory, which was his 13th of the year.

In their two hundred and fifty round starts, the Brisbane based team has amassed an impressive list of victories with eight driver titles, seven for Jamie Whincup, a record nine-team championship, and 217 race wins and eight Bathurst 1000s victories.

Today the racing is set to resume again under lights but with the added factor that conditions are expected to be wet, certainly going to lift the level of difficulty and excitement.
