Lowndes looking to equal Supercars record . Scott McLaughlin's sixth win of the Supercars season has cemented him as the man to beat in this year's championship after a superb drive in Darwin.

[2018-06-13T23:11:10.625Z] I think he holds a few more records (than me) around the traps but Darwin was very special for him McLaughlin will be desperate to atone from botching two poles in May at Winton as Shell it as he looks to equal the Supercars ' record at Darwin's Hidden Valley raceway.

Lowndes, Jamie Whincup, Mark Winterbottom, Chaz Mostert, David Reynolds, Michael Caruso, Shane van Gisbergen, Fabian Coulthard and Scott McLaughlin have all enjoyed Top End victories since 2014.

Despite another anticipated hot contest, Lowndes believes his Commodore will have what it takes to add to his April victory in Tasmania.

"There's certain tracks that suit certain drivers and Darwin is one of those for me," Lowndes said.

"It'd be nice to equal Skaife's record there. I think he holds a few more records (than me) around the traps but Darwin was very special for him."

Lowndes also hasn't ruled out making it a double and claiming the untouched Triple Crown that has never been won since being introduced in 2006.

Drivers have to win both races, along with the Sunday top-10 shootout to take the honour.

"If we get two (wins), it'd be even better and, if we get a couple of pole positions, we might get that Triple Crown that's eluded everyone at the moment," Lowndes said.

Lowndes is third in the championship standings behind Ford ace McLaughlin and Red Bull Holden's van Gisbergen.

McLaughlin will be desperate to atone from botching two poles in May at Winton as Shell V-Power teammate Fabian Coulthard and Nissan's Rick Kelly tasted success.
