The Mercury Cars Guide : August 1st 2009
Saturday, August 1, 2009 Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Whincup stung by fan abuse with JAMES BRESNEHAN C HAMPIONSHIP leader Jamie Whincup admits he has been hurt by criticism from Ford fanatics over the past few days after the announcement his Triple Eight team would switch to racing Holdens for the next three V8 Supercar seasons starting next year. That sets up a fascinating round of competition atSandownthis weekend. With the Supercars in Melbourne, Whincup will continue his bid to win back-to-back V8 crowns in his TeamVodafone Falcon, which was dropped by Ford as an official factory-backed team at the end of last year. But who will cheer for Whincup if he wins the two races (32 laps today and a 65-lap event tomorrow)? Will it be Ford fans, some of whom have accused him of disloyalty for ditching his Falcon at the end of the season for a Commodore, or will Holden fans jump on board in anticipation of things to come? Either way Whincup, who leads the championship by 174 points over Holden’s Will Davison, vehemently disputes claims of disloyalty on his website by Ford fans.

Whincup leads with 1560 points, followed by the Holden Racing Team duoofDavison (1386)andGarthTander (1212), and Whincup’s TeamVodafone teammate Craig Lowndes (1110).
