Sandown win a mixed bag for Jamie Whincup

As Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes celebrated another Supercars success, their thoughts were with teammates Shane van Gisbergen and Garth Tander.

The Red Bull Holden Racing Team duo claimed Sunday's Sandown 500 to secure the 2019 Endurance Cup as the best-performed pairing in this year's three endurance events.

But it took a moment of misfortune for van Gisbergen to hand the pair the win.

Propelled from 24th to the front of the field after a stellar drive by Tander in the opening half of the race, van Gisbergen was charging towards a maiden Sandown crown when his right rear suspension failed.
