Mark Winterbottom lead from start to finish to take two victories from two races in Perth.

The Prodrive Australia driver took a dominant victory ahead of reigning champion Jamie Whincup and Fabian Coulthard.

Winterbottom got a perfect start from pole position immediately pulling out a three second gap from Whincup. The Red Bull Racing Holden driver couldn’t match pace of Winterbottom’s Ford, who now leads the Drivers Championship after today’s victory.

Whincup made up for a poor first race taking the second step on the podium, but Fabian Coulthard didn’t make it easy for him, challenging the reigning champion throughout the 25 lap race.

Coulthard eventually finished in third place ahead of Prodrive’s Chaz Mostert who showed good pace but was ultimately unable to challenge for the final podium place.

Craig Lowndes lost the championship lead after a difficult fist lap which saw him lose places to both Coulthard and Mostert, the Red Bull driver eventually finished in fifth place.

After a difficult first race James Courtney bounced back to place his Holden Racing Commodore into sixth ahead of David Reynolds in seventh.

Rick Kelly and Will Davidson again finished the best of the Nissan’s and the Mercedes. The two battled hard throughout but Kelly was able to hold off Davidson for eighth place.

Tim Slade rounded out the top ten, while Scott McLaughlin had a disaster and his Volvo was forced to retire due to a throttle sensor issue.
