And just like that, the 2021 Supercars season come to a close, and the Drivers’ Championship crown is SVG’s for a second time!
After a grueling Bathurst 1000, SVG reflected on the year that was.
“It’s been an awesome year. We raced tracks at the start of the year that suited our car, and that’s where we were able to get a few wins on the board and build momentum and grab a great lead at the start of the season,” he said.
“I can’t thank our team enough and it’s super awesome to be apart of it. We had a really fun year and I can’t wait to celebrate the Championship with them tonight.
“Unfortunately, we didn’t get the result we wanted today, but it is what it is. I was driving as fast as I could and probably pushed a bit too hard, and we ended up with a tyre failure late in the race.
“Full credit to Chaz (Mostert) and Lee (Holdsworth) on their Bathurst 1000 win. They were quick all day, didn’t make any mistakes and deserved to stand on the top step of the podium.”
