Red Bull Racing Australia has had a clean sweep of the Chill Perth 360, Jamie Whincup taking out the second race of the day, ahead of his teammate Craig Lowndes. 

Whincup didn't have an ideal run – though he started from first on the grid, he had an excursion into the sand after some coolant was dropped on the track. 

Mark Winterbottom, who was running in second, was also caught out by the fluid, but didn't manage to recover, recording 12th in Race 12, at Barbagallo Raceway in Perth. 

Bright was third and while his Team BOC Commodore fell off the pace towards the end of the race, it was a good effort to recover from qualifying 12th.

Rounding out the top 10 was Will Davison – who yesterday lost the Championship lead to Whincup – David Reynolds, Shane Van Gisbergen, Fabian Coulthard, a career best 8th for James Moffat, Tander who recovered from qualifying 23rd, and debutant Chaz Mostert in 10th.
