Stage set for Jamie Whincup's farewell this weekend

The entire Red Bull team joined Jamie Whincup and Hall underneath a special #CheersJDub overpass banner for a special moment that marks the start of Whincup's final event in his decorated career.

Jamie Whincup’s final race as a full-time driver is upon us, and it just so happens to be the iconic Bathurst 1000; earlier in the week, Matt Hall of Red Bull acrobatics took part in a spectacular celebration for the seven-time champion landing on the iconic circuit.

In an illustrious career, Whincup holds almost every record in every major category of modern Supercars History; after Sunday’s great race, Jamie will be making a move into team ownership for 2022.

This weekends race is set to be a blockbuster, with Whincup promising to leave nothing on the table in the hunt for his fifth Bathurst Victory. However, If recent racing alongside his teammate in Sydney was anything to go by, it would be one to watch.
