Holden race for a change in fortune

AFTER a Saturday where anything that could go wrong did for Holden's Craig Lowndes and British co-driver Andy Priaulx, the pair are chasing a reversal of fortune in today's final 300km V8 Supercar race at the Gold Coast.

Lowndes lost his championship lead after a disastrous opening race on the streets of Surfers Paradise, where an electrical issue saw them qualify in 15th and then start the 300km event from pit-lane when it flared up again before the race start.

Then despite the best efforts of TeamVodafone to get the ailing Commodore through enough laps to secure some championship points, an incident with an on-track bollard cracked the radiator and forced Lowndes into the garage for the final time.

The failure to finish and Jamie Whincup's victory yesterday mean Lowndes now trails his team-mate by 50 points in the title race.

Priaulx, the top overseas-based driver at Surfers Paradise last year, said he was desperate to get things back on track before he heads home.
