Ford's Will Davison ended rivals TeamVodafone's V8 Supercars winning run with victory in Sunday's thrilling final 300km race at the Gold Coast 600.

The Ford driver recovered from a basic error in Saturday's race to storm to his seventh-race win of the season and end TeamVodafone's 11-race winning run.

Davison finished ahead of championship leader Jamie Whincup, who had a running battle with rival Mark Winterbottom over the final laps of the Surfers Paradise street circuit but held off Davison's teammate to finish second.

His victory came after a great stint by his international co-driver, ex-Formula One driver Mika Salo, with the Finn driving 56 laps - 22 more than the minimum requirement - to put the No.6 Falcon in a position to secure the win.
