Jamie Whincup will end his full-time Supercars career at season's end with nearly every record imaginable.

His seven drivers' titles, 123 wins and 91 pole positions are all-time markers, and look likely to stand the test of time.

Such has been Whincup's dominance, that he has won championship races at 22 different circuits.

Whincup has won at five overseas venues, which is also a record that may stand alone for some time.

The 38-year-old's 123rd and most recent win came at Symmons Plains in April; the Tasmanian circuit is his most successful venue with 13 victories.

Whincup and long-time teammate Craig Lowndes are the only two drivers in history to have won 100 or more races.

However, Lowndes isn't Whincup's closest rival when it comes to winning at different circuits. In fact, Lowndes won all 110 races on Australian soil.

This list cites championship events; the Bathurst 1000 only became part of the championship in 1999.

Peter Brock, Allan Moffat, Dick Johnson, John Bowe, Mark Skaife and Lowndes all won the Great Race before 1999, Brock a record nine times.

Bowe and Johnson won sprint races at Mount Panorama in the mid-1990s, so they have been listed.

Supercars.com has listed the most prolific drivers in championship history at different circuits.
