After a "dream weekend" at the NP300 Navara Winton SuperSprint, Cameron Waters has proved he is primed to take the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series title this year.

The ENZED Racing pilot completely dominated the third round of the series, taking the round win after securing pole and winning all three races. It was an impresive performance, given he led every lap and session of the weekend, and backs up his clean sweep at the previous event in Perth.

Waters has won seven of eight races in the Dunlop Series 2015 season, with Paul Dumbrell the only other race winner this year.

Dumbrell won the Series title last year, wtih Waters runner-up aftera number of incidents hindered his campaign.

But this time around, Water's is gearing up to take the title and credits his Prodrive Racing Australia crew for his strong form so far this season.

"I'm lost for words really," Waters said of his dominant showing at Winton.

"Any time you win a race in this series is a great achievement, but to win all three for the second round in a row and also lead every session and every lap of each race is just amazing.

"[The team] just keeps giving me an incredible car that is so quick and consistent, which gives me the confidence I need to do the job."

Hiscompetitors are singing the 20-year-old's praises, with experienced racer and former champion Andrew Jones applauding the young gun after Waters beat him to the chequered flag by 9.9 seconds in the final race.

"He's got pole at the last three rounds and won the last five races on the trot, you can't argue with that, can you," Jones said, who finished the round in second.

"My car [at the moment] is as good as its been in this game and I'm driving my car as well as I can and we're not able to match [Cam], so from my world I think he's doing a brilliant job.

"He's pushing to drive that car very very well."

Waters now holds the series lead, heading to the next round at the Castrol EDGE Townsville 400 with a 118 pointlead overDumbrell in second.

Jack Le Brocqis third in the standings, followed by Chris Pitherand Jones.
