V8 Supercars Drivers to Watch
Scott McLaughlin has built up a nice lead in the Championship, and his efforts at Townsville were outstanding. Scott’s been burning to win a Championship for a few years, and he is delicately poised to claim the title and knock off his arch enemy Jamie Whincup. He is a three time winner at Ipswich and will be the man to beat as he heads towards win number four.
DJR Team Penske driver Fabian Coulthard currently sits second in the Championship, and has been giving ground over the past several outings with poor showings. Coulthard admitted during the week that he and the team need to peg back the margin as the year progresses steadily towards the Endurance part of the season and the ultimate, Bathurst.
Shane van Gisbergen currently sits in third but has been inconsistent through-out the season. He did grab the top spot at Townsville in the second race of the weekend, but if he’s going to catch McLaughlin he has to up his game and put together a nice streak, a good stretch of top 3 finishes would surely help his cause.
