The 12th and final episode of the Crimsafe Endurance Countdown looks at Triple Eight Race Engineering – the benchmark team in the V8 Supercars Championship.

The champion TeamVodafone outfit, led by Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes, head into the Sandown and Bathurst events as the bookies’ favourites, thanks in part to an unbeaten winning run that started at Hidden Valley in June.

While Whincup only leads the championship by one point over Mark Winterbottom, the odds are stacked in the Holden team’s favour.

Armed with experienced co-drivers Paul Dumbrell and Warren Luff, victory is the team’s expectation, but will they live up to the hype?

The 2012 Crimsafe Endurance Countdown has run for 12 consecutive days, looking at each V8 Supercars organisation and their chances of victory in the two-driver V8 races – in particular, the famous Bathurst 1000.

There are also two special episodes, dissecting the return of endurance racing to Sandown, and this October’s 50th year celebrations at Mount Panorama.

See below for all of the episode of the Crimsafe Endurance Countdown.

This year’s Crimsafe Endurance Countdown is hosted by Tim Hodges (Fox Sports producer and radio presenter), GRM endurance driver Jack Perkins and two-times Bathurst 1000 winner John Bowe, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews by Speedcafe.com’s journalists Grant Rowley and Stefan Batholomaeus.

Australian motorsport legend Dick Johnson also chips in, presenting Speedcafe’s Crimsafe Ratings, giving each V8 organisation a score out of 10, rating their chances of winning Bathurst.

You can now use these ratings to go into the draw to win a new-specification 18 inch control wheel, signed by TeamVodafone’s Craig Lowndes.

All you will have to do is collect the 10 ratings presented by Johnson, send them to Speedcafe.com and you could win the wheel!
