Jamie Whincup - Car #1
"The car started which was very, very lucky. We had a flat battery at the start of the reconnaissance lap and I got push started, got enough charge up so the car started when it came around to the grid. We put a new AC Delco battery in which meant it would be fine for the race. The race kicked off, my car was good and I had good pace. I was pitting after 97 which meant they were four seconds up the road but we had good tyre life which meant we were able to come back. The good thing was that we didn't race each other, we could've fought each other or short filled, all sorts of stupid stuff like that but it's times like that where we just raced hard and we got the ultimate team result, a one two. We could've pitted early and been vulnerable at the end but the fact that we worked as a team means at the end of the day that's what got us the one two. One hundred percent I think Supercars did a fantastic job, the first ever night event with lots going on, I thought they did a great job. Of course we can learn from it and make it better for next year or other events, but as I keep saying, while that's important, we need to make sure we remember that the racing is the most important thing and all that other stuff should compliment the racing. We had a great race today because we had two teams battling it out hard, we had fierce competition and that's what the weekend is all about."

"I think in the end it turned out to be a great race, when the safety came out the race really came alive and hopefully we put on a good show for the fans. The front five cars were all on good tyres and had a close battle and were able to put on a good show, we hope everyone enjoyed it. Craig (Lowndes) and Scotty (McLaughlin) pitted early and I think we still could've run them down without the safety car, it still would've all come together. I just knew I had to get a good restart and get Craig as quick as I could because he was driving really well. Thankfully I passed him straight away and could focus on bringing the tyre in nice to attack Scotty. The battle with Scotty was epic, he got a bit of pick up and ran a little wide so we got a free pass there. The 300 points wasn't on my mind during the race but it definitely was in preparation for the weekend. We just knew that we had to do a good job with no mistakes and get a good result which, as a team, is what we did."
