They may not have won the 2017 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, but third place on the podium after a long day in wet, trying conditions at Mount Panorama was still the perfect reward for Shell V-Power Racing Team drivers Fabian Coulthard and Tony D’Alberto.

The result gave the team its first Bathurst podium since Roger Penske’s buy-in of Dick Johnson’s famous Ford squad in late 2014 and its first trip to the most famous podium in Australia in 10 long years (since Steven Johnson and Will Davison in 2007).

The podium finish also came 12 years after Coulthard and D’Alberto had first teamed up at Bathurst in 2005 behind the wheel of the second Tasman Motorsport Commodore.
