Winner of this year’s Bathurst 1000, Shane van Gisbergen, has paid his respects to the Holden ‘family’.

Van Gisbergen drove his victory lap with a Holden flag flying out of his Commodore in tribute to red lion supporters.

It was Holden’s final Supercars race in a factory capacity before it is retired by General Motors at the end of this year.

“We’ve been the factory team for the last couple of years, and to not have Holden support racing anymore is devastating, but to win the last Bathurst 1000 for them was something pretty special,” van Gisbergen said.

Commodores will still appear on the Supercars grid next season, just not in an official capacity.

But van Gisbergen‘s Triple Eight team has already committed to racing in Chevrolet Camaros in 2022 when Holden vehicles are fazed out.
