McLaughlin And Premat Win Gold Coast 600

DJR Team Penske’s Scott McLaughlin and Alex Premat pulled off a remarkable Supercars comeback win on the streets of Surfers Paradise.

A strong opening stint from Premat lifted the Shell Ford into contention from 13th on the grid, before McLaughlin leapfrogged all three Commodores with an early second stop.

McLaughlin eventually took the flag 1.5 seconds clear of Jamie Whincup, who secured the championship lead for the first time in 2017 after Fabian Coulthard finished ninth.
