Aussie 1, 2 and 3

Thousands came out to witness what was hoped to be a Kiwi victory after Scott McLaughlin claimed the pole position, but it was not to be.
The race belonged to Jamie Whincup who is out of contention for this year’s Championship but showed he is still a force to be reckoned with.
The six-time champ crossed the line four seconds ahead of teammate Craig Lowndes in the 69-lap race, after grabbing the lead off the start and clinching the prestigious Jason Richards Memorial Trophy.
Whincup becomes the third man to win the prestigious award, named after the late Kiwi driver who succumbed to cancer in 2011.
Drama hit Championship leader Mark Winterbottom, who spun out on lap two and rejoined at the back of the field.
Winterbottom carved through the field and managed to come home 11th. He continues to lead the Championship, now by 239 to Reynolds, but his closest competitors in Lowndes and Reynolds finished ahead at Pukekohe.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
