Holden notches up 600th win milestone

Holden scores its 600th Australian Touring Car Championship/Supercars race win.

01 May 2022

Holden has become the first manufacturer to win 600 Australian Touring Car Championship/Supercars races, following Shane van Gisbergen’s Race 10 victory in Perth.

Van Gisbergen has now taken the 450th, 500th, 550th and 600th wins for Holden. The current championship leader also has the fourth most wins for Holden with 59 victories, behind Jamie Whincup (91), Craig Lowndes (85) and Mark Skaife (80).

“Although it’s no longer with us, it’s cool to have it for the General Motors,” said van Gisbergen.

“For us to represent it still is pretty cool.”

The Holden brand was retired in 2020 and will be replaced in Supercars by the Chevrolet Camaro under the Gen3 rules in 2022.

“Holden Motorsport has a long and proud heritage in Australasia, dating back to the late 1960’s,” said Chris Payne, general manager Holden and Chevrolet Racing Australia and New Zealand.

“The win by Shane van Gisbergen gives Holden Motorsport the honour of being the first brand to achieve 600 race wins, which in itself is a remarkable accomplishment.

“This momentous achievement is a nod to the fans, sponsors, teams and drivers who have helped make it all possible over more than 50-years of racing.”
