Lowndes says victory by means assured at Bathurst

Craig Lowndes has warned that being defending champions and favourites for Sunday's V8 Supercar Bathurst 1000 race can mean little in such a difficult race.

Lowndes and veteran co-driver Mark Skaife won last month's Phillip Island 500 to make it three wins from the past three endurance races.

But Lowndes says no-one should think the pairing are unstoppable going into Sunday's big race with the five-time Bathurst winner well aware of how quickly things can go awry at the Mount Panorama circuit.
