In a continuing purple patch, Shane van Gisbergen has completed a clean sweep at Ned Whisky Tasmania SuperSprint and takes the championship lead in the process.

Continuing from his Championship victory in 2021, the kiwi took to the Tasmanian circuit and became the first driver to win all three races at a Symmons Plains weekend since Garth Tander in 2005.

In a display of master race craft and gamesmanship, Van Gisbergen continues driving right to the limit with sensational passes and panel to panel racing, and it seems that nobody can stop his continued consistency.

“It’s pretty awesome,” van Gisbergen said.

“The car’s been really good all weekend… each race we had to work for it.

“I’m pumped… I was screaming over the radio pretending I had no rear, so they pitted early.

“We’ve got some tough competition from these guys, I don’t mean that in a bad way.”

The next stop is the 2022 Repco Supercars Championship is the Melbourne Grand Prix on April 7-10.
