Jamie Whincup is a Townsville 400 specialist

Jamie Whincup has claimed 9 separate race wins in Townsville….an incredible effort considering the next best drivers Mark Winterbottom and Garth Tander are on 3.

Needless to say, the Townsville 500 is one of his favourite rounds of the Supercars season.

“I’ve had some great times here, don’t ask me why. I love the people.”

It’s the 10th anniversary of the Townsville 400, and Cairns is keen to get its hands on the race in the future.

“The circuit here is fantastic. Cairns will have their work cut out if they want to trump this place.”

Sitting fifth in the championship isn’t ideal for Whincup, but he isn’t interested in the blame game.

“No excuses whatsoever. We’ve got the car, the people, the engine but we’ve got no room to move.”
