Shane van Gisbergen and Aaron Love dominate supports


Holden and Porsche stars take centre stage at Albert Park

The opening Supercars race saw another van Gisbergen win, but only after two Safety Car periods, which saw the race cut one lap short. Second and third were a great result for the Penrite/Grove Racing Mustangs of David Reynolds and Lee Holdsworth, the latter moving through from 15th on the grid!

The race ended in controversy when Chaz Mostert and James Courtney clashed. On the weekend in which he makes his 500th start, Courtney hit the wall, before recovering to ninth place.

In the second Supercars race van Gisbergen had to come from behind to run down Will Davison, winning by 5.9s, while Reynolds took third in a consistent performance.

In the Carrera Cup race, Love maintained his dominant form, taking his third win of the weekend in the Pro class. The rising star had to deal with a Safety Car period and subsequent restart, which allowed Max Vidau to get close at the end of the 8-lap race. Harri Jones was third in the Pro class, while veteran Geoff Emery won Pro-Am honours.

In the open-wheeler S5000s, a late start was caused by delays in the Formula 1 qualifying sessions and when a car hit the wall on the opening lap, with darkness approaching there was no choice but to end proceedings early.

As a result, Shae Davies was declared the winner, ahead of Blake Purdie and Cooper Webster.
