Matching a record is one thing, but breaking it — and taking it away from one of your heroes — is as sweet as it gets.

That’s the situation facing Scott McLaughlin after he equalled Craig Lowndes’ record of race wins in a season.

McLaughlin took his 16th win of 2019 at the OTR SuperSprint on Sunday, and drew level with the record set by Lowndes 23 years ago.

It took a “borrowed” bike to get there, but reigning champion Marc Marquez has claimed Honda took a “great step” with its troublesome 2020 RC213V in the Qatar test.

Tests in Sepang and Qatar proved Honda is behind the eight ball ahead of next weekend’s season opener at the Losail International Circuit, while Marquez himself is battling post-shoulder surgery.

Across the tests, all riders on the 2020-spec Honda – Marquez, younger brother Alex, Cal Crutchlow and Takaaki Nakagami – all reported struggles with front-end handling.

Ferrari has revealed a lubrication system issue was to blame for the engine failure which caused Sebastian Vettel to stop during Barcelona pre-season testing last week.

The team lost valuable track time after Vettel’s SF1000 ground to a halt on the final day of testing, with Ferrari working quickly to repair the power unit.

After the test, Ferrari returned the damaged unit to base to check what went wrong, with the lubrication drama confirmed by the team on Monday.

Supercars 2020, Adelaide 500, Supercars stats Adelaide, Scott McLaughlin

Published

on

The season-opening Superloop Adelaide 500 again fell into the hands of Scott McLaughlin, who opened his title defence with a second straight overall victory.

The two-time defending champion came away with two trophies and the championship lead, and again staked his claim to be the one to beat.

However, away from the obvious headline of McLaughlin’s victory, it was clear from the bounce that a number of rival teams had made gains and discovered momentum which could prove valuable in mounting a title challenge.
