DJR Team Penske driver McLaughlin qualified on pole position for Race 1 and led virtually every lap to score his 10th victory of the season.

Tickford's Cameron Waters and Walkinshaw Andretti United driver Chaz Mostert occupied the second and third spot on the podium respectively ahead of McLaughlin's chief title rival Jamie Whincup, who took advantage of an undercut to finish fourth.

Van Gisbergen retired from Race 1 with a power steering issue, but bounced back on Sunday to claim his first victory of the season - and the 200th for Triple Eight in Supercars' history.

The Kiwi followed that up with a charging drive from 12th on the grid to take an unlikely win in Race 3, aided by a late safety car deployment.

Whincup finished second to make a one-two result for T8, while McLaughlin held on to third ahead of Mostert.

Why replacing Supercars' GOAT with a teenager is worth the risk for T8

On the face of it, picking an 18-year-old rookie to replace arguably the greatest Supercars driver of all time is a risky move. But as Jamie Whincup takes up a team principal role and hands his car to Broc Feeney, it's one that he is confident will be rewarded in the fullness of time - time which wasn't afforded to Whincup in his early days
