Shell V-Power make it a one-two in the top end

In the first race of the Darwin Triple Crown Shell V-Power Racing, Anton De Pasquale and Will Davison secured a one-two finish in the top end.

Anton claimed his eighth career victory and first of the 2022 season in the opener, spoiling the party for his teammate Will Davison, who started from pole position in his 50tth career race.

The Shell V-Power duo made sure they were racing for keeps after starting side-by-side on the front row of the grid, and collided into each other on Turn 5, almost ending both of their races.

As it was, both escaped largely unscathed, with De Pasquale driving away and holding on for a famous victory in front of his veteran teammate who clocked up podium finish number 71 for his career.

Championship leader, Red Bull’s Shane van Gisbergen was third after recovering from a pit lane drama that cost valuable seconds.

Van Gisbergen took on three tyres at his stop, which was a sluggish 11 seconds. The championship leader mowed down the top five runners and was within reach of the leading teammates.

However, a defiant Davison denied van Gisbergen a chance at his teammate, who claimed his maiden victory of 2022.
