Shane Van Gisbergen has won the opening round of the 2017 Supercars Championship.

Van Gisbergen started from pole position, but lost the lead of the race going into the first corner, with both DJR Team Penske cars overtaking him at the first corner, and making a lead over the rest of the cars.

The defending Champion took the lead of the race with only a few laps to go from Scott McLaughlin, who made a mistake under braking and locked his rear wheels. After this, SVG had an easy drive to the flag, to kick off his title defense in the best way possible.
