VIDEO: Whincup celebrates with backflip into river

Jamie Whincup has celebrated his astonishing seventh Virgin Australia Supercars Championship triumph with a backflip off a boat into the Hunter River.

Shortly after the race, Whincup climbed aboard the Red Bull ‘party boat’ moored next to the Newcastle street circuit’s main straight, before backflipping into the river.

He had just claimed the championship in a title decider for the ages at the Coates Hire Newcastle 500.
