Jamie Whincup will start Race 2 from pole position

Jamie Whincup has continued his stellar start to the 2011 V8 Supercars Championship, taking pole position for Race 2 at the Yas Marina Circuit today.

The TeamVodafone driver, who won last night’s opening race of the season, topped the times ahead of his team-mate Craig Lowndes.

The Vodafone pair started one-two for the first race of the season, but today’s race will see them line-up in reverse order.

“That was one of my better laps. I’m really happy with that,” Whincup said.

Steve Johnson impressed with fourth place while Toll Holden Racing Team’s James Courtney put to rest his shocking Race 1, qualifying fifth. Courtney was docked 50 points for a clash with Jason Bargwanna. CLICK HERE for full story.

Courtney’s factory Holden team-mate Garth Tander will start in the same position as yesterday (14th).

Rounding out the top 10 is Lee Holdsworth (Fujitsu Racing), Jason Bright (Team BOC), Alex Davison (IRWIN Racing), Michael Caruso (Fujitsu Racing) and Tim Slade (Lucky 7 Racing).

Race 2 of the V8 Championship will start at 6.20pm.
