It’s a massive afternoon of Motorsport here at Sydney Olympic Park… we still have another 37-laps of V8 Supercar Racing to come, but eyes are currently facing skyward, as dark clouds linger over Sydney.

 

Hi again everyone, Zak Caban with you here in Homebush, for the finale of the V8 Supercar Championship in 2014.

 

Well, earlier this afternoon, we had a very entertaining fight between Jamie Whincup and Tim Slade in Race 36 of the championship, with Whincup prevailing for his 13th win of 2014.

Solid run from David Reynolds to finish third, ahead of Scott McLaughlin, while Rick Kelly took his best result since Bathurst with 5th, ahead of Shane Van Gisbergen.

Casualties in that race included Will Davison, who had a massive power-steering failure, while a incident involving Todd Kelly and Scott Pye saw both competitors retire.
