The 2011 season draws to its conclusion this weekend at the Homebush street circuit. The championship has come down to to a duel between teammates - Triple 8 Racings Whincup and Lowndes.
This track has copped a lot of flak from some, but I've always liked it - there is a level on intensity and commitment that you just cannot find on a race track. With the walls so close, and speeds so high, it brings out the best in both the driver and race engineer to extract the most out of the car.
With only 180-odd points separating Jamie from Craig, Whincup is in the box seat, and he should take out the championship here. But it only takes one bad weekend (like Lowndes had at the Gold Coast) for it to close back up again.
My tip - Jamie to go all the way with two wins this weekend. I'd love Criag to get another championship, so long after the last one, but I cant see it happening.
