Symon strikes back with Race 14 victory

Chris Symon has come back from the disappointment of yesterday’s electrical failure to take a hard-fought victory in Race 14. Championship leader Reece Hendl-Cox took second place ahead of Liam Foster.

As we often see at Hampton Downs, a similar story from race-to-race seems to emerge. Symon, Hendl-Cox and Foster broke away from the field very early on in the race. The trio duked it out until the very last corner where Symon seemed to get just enough of a gap to eliminate the threat from behind. Hendl-Cox and Foster were then left to decide second and third placings in a heated battle.

The fight for the best of the rest was between rookie Leo Scott and Kyan Davie. Scott was able to use his newfound pace to beat Davie to the line and notch up some more points on his rookie of the year rivals. Asten Addy came home in a lonely sixth place.

Fighting for seventh was young rookie racer Bree Morris and experienced journeyman Ron Carter. The pair were separated by just 0.009s at the line with Carter grabbing the position.

Braeden Snowden nursed his smoking car home in ninth ahead of Matthew McCutcheon in tenth and Cullen Curtis as the last of the running cars.
