Whincup inducted into the Supercars Hall of Fame

The seven-time series champion makes his final start as a full-time driver before taking on the role of managing director at Triple Eight Race Engineering.

In his remarkable career, he has broken most of the records in the category, with the most titles, the most race wins (124), the most podiums (237) and the most pole positions (92).

He has also won the Bathurst 1000 four times.

It was launched shortly before the start of the Great Race, announced by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

“A big thank you to our Prime Minister for being here today, it’s our biggest day in Australian motorsport,” said Whincup.

“I just want to thank my friends and family, not just my family, but all families – especially the Queenslanders who have been gone six to eight weeks now.

“We appreciate the efforts to keep the championship going. Thanks to the fan base, everyone who came out, everyone who was watching at home.

“I would especially like to thank my colleagues. We were thrown into the arena, walked hard, fought each other. I wish everyone a safe, happy journey and good luck. “
