The Australian V8 super car driver Mark 'Frosty' Winterbottom has won the 200 kilometre endurance race at Auckland's Pukekohe race track.

The Ford driver pipped the New Zealander Scott Mclaughlin into second by seven seconds after passing his Volvo during their second pit stop.

The Ford driver Chaz Mostert was third with the Holden driving New Zealander Shane van Gisbergen fourth.

McLaughlin started the race in pole position with van Gisbergen and Winterbottom third and fourth on the grid.

The win was Winterbottom's second of the weekend after his victory in Saturday's first sprint race to take the championship lead.

McLaughlin won pole for the second race on Saturday but was beaten into third behind Winterbottom and the winner van Gisbergen.
