Dominant Kody Garland takes victory in Townsville Race 3

MTA NSW’s Kody Garland has secured victory in Race 3 of the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series in Townsville.

The inverted grid placed demoted series leader and two-time race winner already this weekend, Joel Heinrich to eighth.

Masters Cup leader Kent Quinn started from pole in the Norganic Proteins entry alongside the Skin First Skin Cancer Clinics Mustang of Peter Carr.

It was the latter leading the way into Turn 2 as Quinn held off the advances of Garland and Jascott Civil’s Ryan Reynolds, but the race was neutralised when a collision involving Chad Chapman’s Castrol/Motorsport25 entry and Zac Schonberger of Detour Coaches.

While this was happening, Andrew Corish stopped his damaged Camaro at pit exit.

As the safety car led the field it was Carr from Quinn, Garland, Reynolds, Koan Solutions-supported Anthony DiMauro, Cody Brewczynski in the Western Sydney Motorsport entry and Heinrich as the biggest loser in the opening shuffle was Riskie Racing’s Brandon Madden positioned in ninth.

On the restart, Garland was the big mover alongside Reynolds quickly demoting Quinn as the MTA NSW started to menace Carr moving past at Turn 11.

From there Garland dominated and took a 3s win as Reynolds demoted Carr to third, with Brewczynski leading the way for Heinrich and DiMauro.

Carr dropped position to Brewczynski and Heinrich in the closing stages to drop to fifth as DiMauro led another superb recovery drive by Reece Chapman for Guardian Interlock Services/Motorsport25.

Madden was eight ahead of Riskie Racing teammate and Rookie Cup leader Joseph Andriske, while ‘The Dude’ Paul Morris was 10th in his Altima.

Property Compliance Australia’s Matt Gooding rounded out the Gold Cup podium behind Andriske and Morris.

It was the double again for Andriske as he secured Rookie Cup honours from Corish Motorsports’ Mason Harvey after he lost the front clip and TFH Racing’s Diesel Thomas.

Quinn led Masters Cup from Western Sydney Motorsport’s Craig Thompson and the Osborn’s Transport entry of Bret Osborn.

The fourth and final race of Round 4 of the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series is set to commence at 10:40am AEST.
