Shane van Gisbergen matched Peter Brock’s tally of 48 Supercar/ATCC race wins in another masterful display at Hidden Valley Raceway.
The Kiwi romped home to victory, making it two in a row and eight for the season.
With 48 career wins, van Gisbergen is now tied for sixth on the all-time winner’s list, matching the legendary Brock.
Of course, the number of races each season is significantly higher today than what they were back in Brock’s prime. Still, it is an impressive achievement.
Like the day’s earlier race, a strong start from van Gisbergen decided the race outcome.
Polesitter Will Davison had a decent launch, but his second phase of the start was nowhere near the execution of van Gisbergen, and the Red Bull stormed to the front.
From there, it was game, set and match, with van Gisbergen leading Davison home by 2.3s.
“Awesome again at the start,” van Gisbergen said.
“Not sure what happened this weekend, but I got three beauties and then just managed the pace.
“I’m just stoked.”
Davison’s second place adds to his runner-up trophy from the day’s earlier affair.
“Huge turnaround from yesterday, so of course I am stoked,” Davison said.
“Kicking myself…[I am] generally good off the line and I just haven’t got there today.”
Jamie Whincup finished third, his run to the podium made easier when Anton de Pasquale stalled in the pits before running off the track at turn one.
Saturday’s race winner Chaz Mostert climbed up to fourth after starting tenth, and he walks away from the weekend as the top points scorer.
James Courtney was fifth, ahead of Nick Percat, Mark Winterbottom, Tim Slade and Will Brown.
Wildcard and soon-to-be full-time driver Thomas Randle was a standout 11th, with de Pasquale and Fabian Coulthard behind in 12th and 13th.
Andre Heimgartner was left to rue a difficult weekend, which was compounded by an early retirement in the final race with suspension issues.
