Van Gisbergen spoils the party for Murph and McLaughlin

5:49 am on 27 May 2013

Auckland racing driver Shane van Gisbergen had a dominant win at the new-look Pukekohe Park Raceway to claim the latest round of the V8 SuperTourer series.

Van Gisbergen stole the thunder of Greg Murphy and Scott McLaughlin with two wins from the three races, though the veteran Murphy won the third race and still leads the series from Ant Pedersen and van Gisbergen.

McLaughlin was third, fourth and third with Murphy second in both the earlier races.

In South Korea, New Zealand driver Jono Lester made a clean sweep of the latest round of the 2013 Super Taikyu Series at the new Inje Speedium, and he leads the championship with maximum points.
