Van Gisbergen wins Newcastle Supercars

Supercars star Shane van Gisbergen has won race one at the Newcastle 500 from pole position, but a mistake from Triple Eight teammate Jamie Whincup has proved costly.

The Holden duo were in prime position on Satuday for a one-two finish and close the gap in the teams’ championship race, but Whincup misjudged a corner with 20 laps to go and dropped from second to seventh.

It allowed DJR Team Penske’s Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard to round out the podium and extend their teams’ championship lead ahead of Sunday’s season-ending second race.
