Three-time Bathurst 1000 winner and 2007 Supercars champion Garth Tander headed back to where it all began in ’17, rejoining Garry Rogers Motorsport.

Tander has been the team’s most-successful driver, winning Bathurst with Jason Bargwanna and finishing second in the championship in 2000.

Having made his debut in 1998, the West Aussie spent seven seasons with GRM during his first spell, which ended when he left to join the HSV Dealer Team for 2005.

That was the start of 12 seasons within the Walkinshaw Racing umbrella that included his 2007 title and two more Bathurst wins from his nine years with the Holden Racing Team.

Tander’s spell with the former factory squad also included an Adelaide 500 win, back-to-back Phillip Island 500 victories and success in the 2016 Sandown 500, just days before he was informed he was being dropped.

An elder statesman of Supercars, Tander slotted back into GRM seamlessly in 2017.

He claimed an early-season podium at Phillip Island, as the team also transitioned back to Holdens from Volvos, and ultimately finished ninth in the championship.

Tander sits fourth on Supercars’ all-time winners’ list with 54 victories, behind only Jamie Whincup, Craig Lowndes and Mark Skaife.
