Bathurst 1000 champion Shane van Gisbergen is in quarantine with a special item following his return to New Zealand.

Van Gisbergen won at Mount Panorama for the first time on Sunday to help celebrate the end of an era for the Holden Commodore which has been retired.

The Kiwi returned to Auckland and has gone into his two weeks mandatory quarantine period at an Auckland hotel.

With him is the Peter Brock Trophy.

Van Gisbergen's Peter Brock Trophy is one of three, reduced-size replicas produced for the winners - one each for the two drivers and team.

He says he has plenty of racing planned back here.

"I'm going to keep racing, I'll do some rallying, speedway, motorbikes… racing everything."

His plans include a competitive rally outing at the Battle of Jacks Ridge next month, where he'll take on fellow Kiwi Bathurst winner Greg Murphy.
