HOLDEN veteran Craig Lowndes is out to turn back time, adamant he can once again become a championship contender.

On the eve of the Supercars’ season-opening race in Adelaide, Lowndes, 43, revealed he was aiming for a top-three finish in this year’s championship in his new ZB Commodore that “suits my style’’.

Still the biggest name in the sport, Lowndes slumped his way to a career-worst championship finish last year when a final-race crash with Scott McLaughlin pushed him back to 10th.

“My goal is to be back up the front,’’ Lowndes said.

“It was a very fast and hard fall at Turn 7, we knew that the first crash of the season would come but I chose maybe one of the worst corners to have this first crash,” said the Spaniard.

Meanwhile Aussie Jack Miller qualified third, his first front-row appearance since November 2020.
