Harry Inwood took out the 60min final race of the season with a 10-second win, in dramatic fashion. After Jamie Craig and Josh Craig streaked out to an 11sec lead before the pitstop window opened with 4th to 7th in an intense battle pack.
Josh’s race would come undone with a mistimed pitstop right at the end of the CPS window, and he ultimately crossed the pitlane control line 1.8secs after the CPS window closed. A 5 Lap post-race penalty would be applied, resulting in finishing in 19th.
Jamie’s race fell short on the last lap, with low oil pressure with the engine forcing him to pull over, and DNF’ing..
Greg Dufficy and Scott Tidyman also received 5 Lap penalties for being agonisingly short with their “3 Minute” CPS pitstops, both were within 1-2 seconds short.
Gavan Reynolds finished in second place, and Dan Smith/Tim Maynard rounded off the podium. After an offtrack excursion at the start of lap 2, Tim dropped the car to the back of the field, after handing the car back over to Dan at the start of the CPS window, Dan was able to recover from 20th to finish 3rd.
Chris Manning and Ian Joyce both finished in the Top 5, which resulted in Ian’s best finish for the season.
Master’s Cup – Jamie Canellis finished a great 6th outright and 1st Masters, with 2nd and 3rd Masters of Shane Tate finishing 13th and Jeff Lawrence in 15th.

Dan Smith has taken out the Sprint Race, in spectacular fashion, but holding off the Craig brothers for the entire race.

There were a couple chances, but Dan was able to take the win.
In the Master’s Cup, Shane Tate took the honours with a 7th outright, with Jamie Canellis finishing 12th outright and Jeff Lawrence finishing 22nd.
