Shane Van Gisbergen Bathurst record lap

SVG's record-setting qualifying lap in the McLaren 650S GT3

Shane Van Gisbergen Bathurst record lap

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last week, you'll know that Shane Van Gisbergen, along with team mates Jonathon Webb and Alvaro Parente, won the 2016 Bathurst 12 Hour in a McLaren 650S GT3.

Despite suffering a number of setbacks, the McLaren was essentially the fastest car all race, but it was on Saturday afternoon that SVG proved the 650S's pace by setting an incredible 2:01.286 lap to put the Tekno Autosports run car on pole.

This set a new lap record for the Mount Panorama track, and thanks to McLaren you can watch in awe at how this flying Kiwi did it.
