King claims clean sweep

Bramwell King has claimed an impressive clean sweep after taking an epic final race at Hampton Downs which saw four-wide photo finish. Arran Crighton crossed the line in second ahead of Matt Podjursky.

Chris Symon started off pole alongside Reece Hendi-Cox as the pair both set faster times in race two than the preceding top two qualifying times. Hendi-Cox got too good of a start and subsequently received a five-second penalty. However, Symon took full advantage of his pole position and took the lead ahead of King and Podjursky.

Podjursky soon took over the lead on the second lap ahead of King and Hendi-Cox as the remainder of the top seven joined on the back of the rookie to form a seven car race for the lead. Kaleb Ngatoa and Liam Foster, sitting sixth and seventh at the time, started to fall back after they took their battle to another level.

Dylan Smith was on for another strong result until the teenager had an unfortunate spin at the dipper on lap four. The SpeedSport Scholarship driver recovered to 15th after having to wait for the entire field to drive past him and more.

Ian Foster and Alex Hawley engaged in a battle in the later part of the race fighting for ninth position. Foster would prove the victor once the chequered flag was waved taking ninth, Hawley still recording a solid top ten result.
