Shane van Gisbergen has dominated the Clipsal 500 over the weekend to end up on the podium of the season opener and in good contention for the Virgin Australia Supercars (VASC) drivers’ championship .
When we say dominance, it’s not just for the race itself but also in practice where Van Gisbergen was fastest of the pack to qualify, in the shoot-outs that followed and again in both races driving his Commodore to beat the rest to the finish line.
“Coming into the weekend we had a fair few unknowns, but it’s great to know that we know how the car performs, we know the car is fast,” said van Gisbergen.
“We cracked the big 300 podiums for Triple Eight today as well, which is an awesome milestone for the team. We can really head into the season knowing we gave the opener our all.”
