Shane van Gisbergen has wrapped up the 2022 Supercars championship with three races still remaining.
Van Gisberfen claimed his third Supercars title with his 20th race win of the season on the Gold Coast, extending his record for most race wins in a season. It gives Holden and the Commodore a final championship win in its final season.
“This year has obviously been a massive change for the team with Jamie (Whincup) retiring and taking over the team with the help of Jess (Dane, co-owner) and also RD (Roland Dane) taking that big backwards step,” said van Gisbergen.
“It’s also been a huge change with (David) Cauchi leaving and us getting a new engineer in Andrew (Edwards), but the team has been awesome. Although having no real rule changes has helped, we’ve got a good car that we could continue on with, it’s just been great this year, not many mistakes – a couple from myself which hurt, but it’s been amazing this year and we’ve still got a fair way to go.”
Van Gisbergen will move into a Chervrolet Camaro in 2023, when Supercars switches to the Gen3 cars.
