    Jamie Whincup has been inducted into the Supercars Hall of Fame before the start of the Bathurst 1000

    Jamie Whincup has been inducted into the Supercars Hall of Fame before the start of the Bathurst 1000


    Just minutes before stepping into his Commodore for his last race before retiring as a full-time driver, the seven-time Supercars champion was honoured on the famous Mount Panorama track.

    Aussie Prime Minister Scott Morrison inducted Whincup into the Hall of Fame, joining the likes of Peter Brock, Mark Skaife and Dick Johnson in Supercars pantheon.

    Whincup has a record 124 career wins, 237 podiums and 92 pole positions - the most by any driver in Supercars history.

    He will move straight into management next year when he becomes Triple Eight's team principal, taking over from Roland Dane.
