For only the second time in history an all Kiwi driver pairing has won the Bathurst 1000, with Shane van Gisbergen and Ritchie Stanaway persevering to claim the Peter Brock Trophy for 2023.
“What an awesome day. Richie drove awesome, and it’s been so cool to have him a part of the team and a part of this experience this year. I’m really going to miss this place and miss the fans, and it was an amazing experience on that podium. The team did a fantastic job. We were a little but under the radar this week doing our race runs and just being methodical about our setup and tuning it as we went, and obviously our race went pretty good. It was a pretty special moment for two Kiwis to be on the top step.”
