Cameron Waters Takes Podium at The Bend - V8 Supercars

Cam Waters dominates Race 30, takes victory at The Bend

Sep 272020

Cameron Waters (No. 6 Monster Energy Ford Mustang) has scored his second career Supercars victory on Sunday, taking out Race 30 of the 2020 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. Starting from second, Waters took the lead on Lap 1 with a pass on the outside of Turn 1 and never looked back, only relinquishing the lead during the race’s pit stop cycle en route to leading 19 laps and taking the chequered flag. Including a third place finish in Race 29 earlier on Sunday afternoon and following another third place on Saturday, Waters’ eighth podium of 2020 moves his career tally to 18, and he maintains third in the Supercars drivers’ championship heading to the season finale at Bathurst next month.

““I’m so pumped for the boys, we’ve been so close this year, a bunch of seconds and thirds, so to finally get one feels great. We made some changes to the car between races today and made it a bit better, I knew I just needed a good start and I finally got one, and we were away. We had a fast car in clean air and the boys did a mega job in the pit stop, so it’s great to reward them for all their hard work, I couldn’t have done it without them. And I got to do a burnout as well, I had been saving those rears the whole race, I just wanted to get rid of them so it was fun to blow them off at the end.””

The Virgin Australia Supercars Championship next heads to its crown jewel and 2020 season finale, the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, the lone endurance race on the revised 2020 calendar. On-track action for Australia’s Great Race begins Thursday, October 15, ahead of the 161-lap endurance classic on Sunday, October 18.
