Will Davison claims Sandown victory with a dominant performance

Will Davison claims Sandown victory with a dominant performance

The two-time Bathurst champion Will Davison secured his second victory of 2022 with an emphatic eight-second victory over championship leader Shane van Gisbergen.

The two-time Bathurst champion Will Davison secured his second victory of 2022 with an emphatic eight-second victory over championship leader Shane van Gisbergen.

Davison dedicated his 21st career victory to late friend and premiership-winning NRL coach Paul Green, who passed away last week,  the former Cowboys and Origin coach, a close friend of Will and his Wife Riana.

“I wanted to do a big shoutout to the Green family for Paul Green,” Davison said.
“He was a friend of mine and so many people. I’d like to dedicate this to him.”

The Shell V-Power Racing Team drivers took out positions one and three in the sprint race at Sandown raceway,  with Davison leading from pole with a perfect start and tremendous pace throughout the whole race and extending his lead to an almost unheard of eight seconds in the recent era of Supercars.

“It’s a relief to know we’ve got a good race car now,” he said.
“Of course, we can look at little things here and there, but we can focus on executing qualifying laps. “It’s going to be tighter again tomorrow; touch wood, laps are coming quite repeatedly. I’m sure everyone will step it up.” Davison said.

Defending Supercars Champion and points leader Shane van Gisbergen finished in second position and extended his championship lead to 401 points, ahead of Davison’s teammate Anton De Pasquale in third.

The victory comes off the back of a big news week for DJR racing, with new ownership coming into the outfit and the news that Will Davison and Anton de Pasquale will continue racing with the team in 2023.
