Holden’s Garth Tander denied a fast-finishing Craig Lowndes in one of the most memorable Bathurst 1000 finishes to claim his third Mount Panorama crown and the Peter Bock Trophy.  Garth Tander won by less then three-tenths of a second after having to hold off five-time Bathurst winner Craig Lowndes in a dramatic two-car sprint at the end of the 161-lap epic.

Craig Lowndes now leads the V8 Supercar Championship over Jamie Whincup by 100 points.  The next V8 Supercars event is the Gold Coast 600 on October 22 and 23.
