Kiwi driver Shane van Gisbergen is well-known to V8 Supercar fans, but he put his name on the world map with this devastating lap of Mount Panorama.

In qualifying for the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour, van Gisbergen was able to pilot a McLaren 650S GT3 around the torturous circuit in 2min, 01.286sec; the fastest-ever lap of Bathurst.

Carrying this form into the race, the McLaren squad took the 12 Hour victory, adding a race lap record in the process.

Sit back (if you have time to relax… it’s over pretty quick) and enjoy.
