Van Gisbergen and Tander win Bathurst 1000

Shane van Gisbergen and co-driver WA's Garth Tander have conquerer Mount Panorama for the second time as a duo winning Sunday's Bathurst 1000.

It's the fifth time that Tander has claimed victory in Motorsport's grand final while Van Gisbergen adds a second title to his name.

Chaz Mostert and Fabian Coulthard were second in their Holden Commodore, while Ford's Cam Waters and James Moffat finished third.

The race last a total of six hours and 41 minutes and Tander was quick to heap praise on his co-driver.

"Shane, at the end of the race, how he can do that, just his focus and his ability to punch out laps like that, it's seriously impressive to watch," Tander said.

"It's an honour to be a part of it, the last ever Commodore here at Bathurst, that will sink in a bit later."

It was the end of an era for Holden Commodore as the Chevrolet Camaro takes over when the Gen3 era begins in 2023.

Van Gisbergen said it was the perfect way to send Holden off.

"It's special, I'm rapt," Van Gisbergen said, praising his team.

"To send Holden out like this is epic … [it's] a special way to send it out."
