Shane van Gisbergen’s top five races

After three Repco Supercars Championships and the same number of Bathurst 1000s, Shane van Gisbergen will depart the local racing scene next year to enter the world of NASCAR following his debut win in Chicago.

Following his debuting at Oran Park in 2007, van Gisbergen has achieved 81 race wins, 48 pole positions and 176 podiums ahead of the VAILO Adelaide 500 this weekend.

To celebrate these achievements the Repco Garage has collated his top five races in Supercars, but if you don’t agree head to our socials to share your opinion.

Hamilton 2011

At 21-years-old van Gisbergen took his first Supercars win on home turf on the streets of Hamilton heading off a challenge from Lee Holdsworth in what were difficult mixed conditions. With his home crowd behind him, van Gisbergen held on to take victory.

“When I was growing up I used to watch Murph and clap every time he came round,” van Gisbergen said.

“I could see the crowd cheering after I passed Rick [Kelly] and that got to me, I started to make mistakes, so there were a few, ‘C’mon Shane, let’s get it together’.

“When you have the whole nation on you, it’s hard not to get excited.

“It’s a dream come true. This is what I always wanted to do.”

Bathurst, 2014

A heartbreaking event for van Gisbergen, but was one where he was at his best. After securing provisional pole and converting this in a tense Top 10 Shootout to start Sunday’s race from the prime position. In what was a controversial and long event, van Gisbergen held a significant lead entering the final hour until the final pit stop where the race went awry. Coming in for one last pit stop, van Gisbergen was unable to restart the Tekno Autosport VF Commodore due to a starter motor fault dropping him out of contention.
