Pic special: Newcastle Supercars
Holden ended a horror Supercars season on a high in Newcastle with wins in the final two races of the year for Red Bull Holden Racing Commodore drivers Shane van Gisbergen and Jamie Whincup. Ford rival Scott McLaughlin had already wrapped up his second consecutive championship win in the penultimate round.
Holden duo scores at Sandown
Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes scored a relatively untroubled victory in the Sandown 500 in their Red Bull Holden Racing Team Commodore. The Holden team had looked set for a one-two until the sister car of Shane van Gisbergen and Garth Tander suffered a rear suspension failure not far from the finish. The win for Whincup and Lowndes also secured them the Pirtek Enduro Cup title.
McLaughlin straight ahead at the Bend
Scott McLaughlin's dominance of the 2019 Supercars season continued at Tailem Bend where the DJR Team Penske Ford Mustang driver scored a clean sweep of victories across the two days. Sunday's victory was McLaughlin's ninth across the last 11 starts, and his 16th win from the 22 races held so far in this year's championship.
S5000 openwheelers set for Sandown debut
The new S5000 open wheeler racing category will make its historic debut at Sandown this weekend. A field of 13 S5000 cars, headed by former Ferrari F1 driver Rubens Barrichello, will take to the Sandown track for the first race for these Australian-developed machines. Boasting state-of-the-art open wheeler technology and a powerful 5.0-litre V8 engine, S5000 is easily the fastest motor racing category in Australia outside of Formula 1 and the cars are expected to smash outright lap records at almost every circuit they visit.
High hopes for Holden aces in Albert Park Supercars stoush

Both are keen to repeat the landmark success they enjoyed at this venue 12 months earlier, when Pye scored his first Supercars race win and Whincup became the first ever recipient of the Larry Perkins Medal.
