Another Star Has Been Born

Twenty-one-year-old Stone Brothers Racing driver Shane van Gisbergen had a day he will remember forever earning his maiden victory in the Hamilton V8 Supercars race. Auckland-born Van Gisbergen has come agonisingly close to his breakthrough victory in the past, but despite unpredictable weather, a chaotic street circuit and the pressure of performing in front of his home crowd, he is now a V8 Supercars race winner. “When I was growing up I used to watch [Greg] Murph[y] and clap every time he came round,” Van Gisbergen said. “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.” Van Gisbergen is based on the Gold Coast.
