Reece Chapman completes superb comeback to win Race 3

Following a mechanical problem in the opening race and a charge from the back to fifth in the second, Guardian Interlocks-supported driver Reece Chapman has taken victory in the third event for Round 2 of the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series at Queensland Raceway.

Chapman managed to edge out Brandon Madden in the Riskie Racing entry and prevent a repeat of the local’s race win from last year, with Diesel Express’ Kyle Ensbey rounding out the podium after near-replicating the performance of the victor.

It was the Koan Solutions entry of Anthony DiMauro sharing the front row with Action Line Marking’s Scott Dornan in an inverted top 10 grid for Race 3. It was DiMauro leading the way for the opening laps before Masters Cup leader Kent Quinn completed a pass on lap 2 as the Koan Solutions entry dropped down the order after running wide at Turn 2.

Meanwhile, Madden and Chapman made steady progress until the safety car was required when Fight MND’s Jeff Watters was spun and stopped on the exit of Turn 4.

This proved the perfect opportunity for Madden as he demoted Quinn, but it was Chapman completing a fairy tale result to win the penultimate race of the weekend.

Behind, Madden and Ensbey rounded out the rostrum from reigning series winner Joel Heinrich for Osborn’s Transport as Race 2 winner Kody Garland was fifth.

Quinn still finished sixth to take out Masters Cup from Cody Brewczynski after his Western Sydney Motorsport entry caught fire immediately after Race 2, DiMauro, TFH Hire’s Josh Thomas and Corish Motorsports contender Josh Anderson.

Lead Rookie Cup contender Mason Harvey was 11th outright from the WLM Motorsports Falcon AU of Tim Hamilton and Alastair Koenig in the Eltrix Racing entry.

Dornan dropped to 12th, but still retained the Gold Cup honours from Team Grand Racing’s Denis Butler and Emma Clark for Mable.

It was Quinn again in Masters Cup as the battle for the minors fell in favour of Cody Mckay as MSS Group’s Scott O’Keefe completed the top three.

The final Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series race on the schedule is to begin at 12:40pm AEST.
