Mark Winterbottom has continued his blistering form despite illness today aboard his #5 Orrcon Steel FPR Falcon, coming home for the win this afternoon and finishing second in this morning’s race at the final day of racing for the 2009 Nikon SuperGP.
That makes two wins, and two runner-ups from the four 150km races this weekend for the driver who has been battling a glandular illness this week, with the points he collected – the most of any driver this weekend – elevating him to fifth in the championship.
