Jamie Whincup still a chance for Bathurst 1000


Jamie Whincup could be taking the 2016 Bathurst 1000 crown off Will Davison, if an official appeal his Supercars team lodged over the controversial finish is successful.

The Governing body for the race, the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport, will not rule out any possible outcome ahead of Whincup’s hearing in Melbourne.


The Holden star is contesting a time penalty that cost him a fifth Bathurst 1000 win, which Gold Coast’s Will Davison was handed.

While Whincup did cross the line first, he was relegated to 100th after copping a 15 second time penalty for costing Volvo’s Scott McLaughlin and Holden’s Garth Tander their shot.
