V8 Supercars Championship leader Jamie Whincup will start Sunday’s Bathurst 1000 from the back of the grid after crashing out during qualifying..

The Red Bull Racing star slid into a concrete barrier at Mount Panorama with 20 minutes left in today afternoon’s session – causing some major damage to his Holden Commodore and ending his chances of a place in the Top 10 shootout.

His lap time before the crash has him in 25th place on the grid, only ahead of David Reynolds who was also bitten hard by the mountain..
