Kiwi motorsport legend Greg Murphy believes it's time Scott McLaughlin quit the Australian Supercar Series.

A ninth-placed finish at the Sandown 500 on Sunday was enough to claim back-to-back championship titles for McLaughlin.       

But instead of celebrating, he labelled his rivals "toxic" after a war of words erupted post race.

After such animosity, Kiwi motorsport legend Greg Murphy believes it's time McLaughlin left Supercars in his dust.   

"I have no doubt that he is looking further afield and so he should be," Murphy told Newshub. "Outside Supercars."  

Whether that decision is made after the final race of the season in two weeks time remains to be seen. Either way, the 26-year-old will have the chance to celebrate yet another championship.
