Garth Tander slams Jamie Whincup after late-race crash ended his Bathurst 1000 hopes
October 10 2016
GARTH Tander has slammed Jamie Whincup’s “pretty desperate” move that triggered a disastrous chain-reaction, sending the Holden Racing Team driver crashing into the wall and ending his Bathurst 1000 hopes.
And HRT team owner Ryan Walkinshaw didn’t hold back either, saying the team had been “robbed” after the dramatic three-car incident on lap 150 that ended the race hopes of Tander, Scott McLaughlin and Whincup at Mount Panorama.
It all started when Whincup tried a passing move on the inside of McLaughlin, forcing the Volvo driver off the track. When McLaughlin found his way back onto the track he then collided with Tander, who was wedged in behind Whincup, forcing the HRT veteran crashing into the wall.
