Supercars championship to be decided on the Gold Coast

Next week the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 arrives in town, and with it, the exciting possibility that the championship could be decided on the Gold Coast for the first time.

Next week the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 arrives in town, and with it, the exciting possibility that the championship could be decided on the Gold Coast for the first time.

This year’s Supercars Championship is all but secured for Shane van Gisbergen with the kiwi only having to finish one of the two races on the weekend in the top 20 places to secure his third driver’s championship.

In the closing laps of the Bathurst 1000, it looked like Van Gisbergen would secure the championship at Mount Panorama but late overtaking from Cameron Waters pushed the title to the streets of Surfers Paradise for the first time.

When asked about this, Shane told supercars.com, “I would’ve liked to.“Maybe if we go good at Gold Coast and wrap it up, it’s a pretty cool place to have a party too.”

This year has continued a level of dominance across the 2021 and 2022 championships with a record-breaking streak of  19 victories in a single season and two race weekends left to go.

It looks like a lock for Shane and Triple Eight Race Engineering. However, we do know the streets of Surfers Paradise can bite and bite hard, and with drivers tackling the two 250km races for the first time without a co-driver, we can expect everyone wIll be out to spoil the party for #97
