Red Bull Looking Good for Bathurst.

The cream comes to the top during the Enduros.

Whincup-DumbrellJamie Whincup and Paul Dumbrell, defending champions from The Bathurst 1000 in 2012, put themselves among the favourites for the 2013 great race, with a gutsy win in the Sandown 500 Yesterday.

Right behind them in second place on the podium were defending Sandown 500 champions Craig Lowndes and Warren Luff with Ford duo Will Davidson and Steve Owen finishing third.

Two other worthy mentions would include a fourth place for Mercedes duo  Lee Holdsworth and Craig Baird, after starting 19th 0n the grid. This was Erebus Racing’s best result since joining V8 Supercars at the beginning of the 2013 season and holds them in good stead for the remaining Enduros at Bathurst and The Gold Coast.

In another positive rehearsal for Bathurst, the HRT commodore of past Bathurst winners James Courtney and Greg Murphy, finished in fifth place after experiencing a very bruising day, including going a lap down, after a drive through penalty for a mechanical black flag, to remove some loose body parts from the car. Their fast finishing, determined fifth place suggests that they will certainly be a force to be reckoned with when we get to the mountain.
