James Courtney has taken out the 2014 Clipsal 500.

In a weekend of great racing, Adelaide saw a return to the winners circle of Holdens 2007 championship winner James Courtney. With Red Bull’s Craig Lowndes coming in second ahead of pole sitter Shane Van Gisbergan.

In a Holden 1,2,3 the maximum Adelaide crowd witnessed a sensational edge-of-the-seat finish between the three Holden pilots.

 

Defending V8 Champion, Jamie Whincup, won the first of the three Clipsal races, while his team mate Craig Lowndes won the second. But as is customary at the Clipsal the winner of the longer 250kl race on Sunday is crowned the overall Clipsal winner. However in the points standing the leader board tells another story.

Jason bright had a race to remember when, through no fault of his own, he flipped the BOC Holden, to end his race. Luckily he escaped serious injury.

The video below tells the story.
