We came, we saw, we conquered, well kind of, some of the teams did, some may wished they left the cars in the Containers, race five had it all once again, a few broken cars and a few bruised ego’s, but all in all the ARC drivers once again turned on the show for the local crowd. The top spot was hard fought by Brendon Pingel, Craig Woods and Simon Smith the lead changing almost every lap.
John Reynolds bought out the safety car in the final laps after hitting the wall on pit straight, leaving a two lap dash to the final flag. Pingel once again came out on top from Woods and Smith.
Craig Woods won the round with 245 points from Simon Smith on 240 and third was Mark Griffith with 226 points, one point ahead of Brendon Pingel.
The teams have had a marvellous time here at Highlands Motorsport Park NZ and we hope to be back again next year, thanks to all the staff and volunteers at the circuit for their dedicated help and hospitality.
