Our readers from Australia and New Zealand would be familiar with Shane Van Gisbergen, one of the rising stars in the V8 Supercars series. For others, he’s probably best known for his drifting victory lap. At last weekend’s Sydney Telstra 500 – the final round of the V8 Supercars championship – the 22 year old New Zealander once again demonstrated his daredevil antics. This time around it occured while trying to snatch third place on the last corner of the final lap.
