Kody Garland strikes first in Perth

In a Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series race for the ages, MTA NSW-supported Kody Garland has taken first blood at Raceway, Perth.

Garland won by the mere margin of 0.032s after a switchback manoeuvre on reigning series winner Joel Heinrich, who led the way for most of the opening encounter in the Osborn’s Transport entry.

However, it was a disaster for hometown hero Mason Harvey after he stalled on the front row in the Corish Motorsport entry, but after the field did a remarkable job to avoid him the stricken Mustang forced the safety car to neutralise the field.

The restart occurred on lap 3 as Heinrich held off Garland and later built a margin to 0.7s as Masters Cup leader Kent Quinn held off 2022 series winner Josh Anderson among others for fifth place.

Reece Chapman in the Guardian Interlock Services entry had moved up to third, while Brandon Madden improved his impressive run this weekend to sit fourth.

In a remarkable effort, Action Line Marking driver Scott Dornan in his rebuilt entry was leading Gold Cup and well entrenched in the top 10 as Quinn ahead had solidified his lock in on fifth.

Towards the end of the race Garland began to eat into Heinrich’s lead before having a lunge at the final corner on the last lap to seal a memorable win.

Chapman maintained third from Madden, Quinn, Anderson, Dornan, Western Sydney Motorsport’s Cody Brewczynski, Nathan Williams for Competition Coatings and Corish Motorsports’ Jordan Freestone.

Freestone took the Rookie Cup standings from Safe Direction’s Shane Mann and debutant Lachlan Evennett of WLM Motorsport.

Cody Mckay and Troy Jones locked out the Masters Cup rankings behind Quinn, while Dornan secured Gold Cup from Riskie Racing’s Joseph Andriske and Jeff Watters of Fight MND.
