Shane van Gisbergen may have celebrated a little too hard after his Bathurst 1000 victory.

The Kiwi Supercars star had to run out on a live television appearance on Nine Network's Today show in Australia to vomit, leaving his co-driver Garth Tander to interview alone.

Van Gisbergen, who became a dual Bathurst 1000 champion last night, ducked out of the early morning interview after briefly appearing on screen alongside Tander to chat with Today host Karl Stefanovic in what looked to be an emergency dash to the bathroom.

"I understand how you feel after a big night," Stefanovic laughed. "He showed up for a short time and now he's gone."

Asked how his partner was doing during the interview, Tander replied: "I think he's curled in the fetal position in the corner somewhere. Not sure we're going to hear from him anymore this morning. It's hard work doing a 1000 k's around here but it was harder work getting him up this morning."
