AFTER claiming pole position yesterday for the second leg of the Supercars Townsville 400, Tickford Racing’s Cameron Waters had to settle for third behind Red Bull Holden Racing’s Shane Van Gisbergen and Shell V-Power Racing Team’s Fabian Coulthard.
Polesitter Waters bolted at the front from the race’s opening, leading by four seconds after the first two laps. His lead over Coulthard then stabilised, while fellow Tickford driver Chaz Mostert was the big mover into third from 16th, including moving up to sixth on lap one.
