Tander makes it two from three

Whincup took the lead at turn one and looked set for a comfortable victory, but exiting turn two on lap three Whincup slowed, pulling into the pits at the end of the lap, Tander taking over at the front and easing away to take the win.

Shane van Gisbergen continued a strong weekend with second place, with Will Davison and Craig Lowndes moving up the order to finish third and fourth, just ahead of Steven Johnson.

James Courtney looked set for second place, but a trail of smoke eventually forced him into the pits, retiring with an oil leak. Mark Winterbottom also looked set for a top-five finish before he slowed and retired as well.

After failing to finish yesterday's race, Jack Daniel's Racing's Todd Kelly made a remarkable climb through the order, finishing in tenth place.
