Craig Lowndes is upbeat for the Great Race after he and Zane Goddard finished 10th in Triple Eight’s Supercheap Auto wildcard at the Penrite Oil Sandown 500.
Goddard qualified 23rd before Lowndes raced his way as high as sixth on merit in the #888 Chevrolet Camaro, despite a touch with a Truck Assist Camaro which forced him into a big catch at the kink in Sandown’s back straight.
This year is the first time that Triple Eight has fielded a wildcard in multiple events and, after finishing eighth with Declan Fraser at Mount Panorama last year, the veteran half of this year’s duo is high on confidence.
“It’s an amazing feeling to be finishing in P10,” said Lowndes.
