Supercars legend Craig Lowndes is far from retirement and thinks he’s a good chance to win at Bathurst again.
Fan favourite Lowndes is partnering rookie Declan Fraser in Triple Eight’s Supercheap Auto-backed wildcard entry at Bathurst in 2022.
The seven-time Bathurst 1000 winner thinks he has enough competitive racing left in him to challenge mentor and friend Peter Brock’s record nine victories.
Lowndes has a co-driver contract with Triple Eight for next year as well. In the latest PARKED UP PLUS podcast, he explains why he wants to continue at Bathurst beyond his current deal.
He also reveals that he thinks he and Fraser are strong podium chances this October. It’ll be Lowndes 29th Bathurst 1000 start – and, he says, far from his last.
Forty-seven year-old Lowndes thinks he has at least a few more years left as a Bathurst co-driver. And, as history suggests, he is always a contender at Bathurst with another two wins to equal Brock not out of the question.
Lowndes also talks to PARKED UP PLUS about former all-conquering teammate Jamie Whincup’s transition to Triple Eight team boss.
As well, Bathurst hero Greg Murphy lifts the lid on his wildcard return with fellow Kiwi Richie Stanaway. It’s Murph at his no-hold-barred finest, revealing that his return is strictly a one-off.
