Battery World AUSSIE RACING CARS SUPER SERIES ROUND 7 SUNDAY WRAP.
In a dogged final championship race of the season for the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars, Cody Brewczynski emerged from the frantic event as the race winner in his Shell Rimula Mustang.
Throughout the race he was involved in a three-way battle with Joel Heinrich (Osborn Transport Cruze) and Kody Garland (MTA NSW Mustang). Meanwhile Josh Anderson hovered in the background and his fifth place was enough to secure the championship in his Cooldrive Mustang.
Brewczynski secured the race as leaders Heinrich and Garland had contact at turn one on the final lap*. Brewczynski breezed past to secure a 1.5 second victory over Heinrich while Garland slipped to fourth behind Anthony Di Mauro (Pour n Polish Camaro).
Title contender Lachlan Ward (Productivity Bootcamp Camaro) was ahead of Di Mauro and Anderson for much of the race until his engine went off song. He slowed and finished eleventh.
Brewczynski’s team mate Ryan Reynolds held seventh until he had a moment at turn nine and dropped behind sixth place Courtney Prince (Local Legends Mustang and Ryder Quinn (Local Legends Euro GT).
Matt Gooding (Property Compliance Australia Camaro) completed the top ten. Matt Forbes-Wilson (Camaro) finished twelfth in front of Nick Lichtenberg (Camaro) and Kent Quinn (Norganic Proteins Aurion).

Battery World AUSSIE RACING CARS ROUND 7 SANDOWN SATURDAY WRAP
The second race of the final round for the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series at Sandown Raceway was an absolute thriller, and the third was similar for many laps.
Topgun Race Team drivers Ryan Reynolds and Cody Brewczynski went first and second in the first aboard their Shell Rimula Mustang-bodied racers, Then Cody Garland (MTA NSW Mustang) emerged from an exhilarating race three battle for something of a comfortable victory.
It was a race where seven were in contention to win race two. Brewczynski was the early leader ahead of Reynolds and race one winner Joel Heinrich (Osborn Transport Cruze). Reynolds gained the lead after three laps and held on to it for the remainder.
Several put the pressure on including Heinrich and Garland who spun out of turn three on the penultimate lap. Miraculously he recovered quickly and continued at the back of the six-car battle.
Ahead Heinrich had second until they were about to take the chequered flag where he was pipped by Brewczynski by 0.12 seconds. Lachlan Ward (Productivity Bootcamp Camaro) was close behind ahead of Josh Anderson (Cooldrive Mustang) and Garland.
There was a gap to the next trio where Courtney Prince (Local Legends Mustang) edged out Reece Chapman (Cooldrive Mustang), and Leigh Bowler (Supergroups Camaro). Tenth place went to Brett Osborn (Osborn Transport Camaro) who would start the reverse top ten race three from pole position.
Ryder Quinn (Euro GT) started sixth but had contact with Anthony Di Mauro (Camaro) at turn one on the first run through and spun. He had a further moment at turn 10 and then recovered to 11th.
Di Mauro dropped down the field with an engine issue and finished 24th. Cody McKay (Commodore) finished nine places ahead. He looked to have tenth secured after he started rear of grid, until a spin at turn three.
From the outside of the front row, Bowler was the immediate leader of race three while pole sitter Osborn fell down the field. Chapman took up the chase and was second for the first three laps.
Garland took the lead on lap four with Anderson in second, the pair able to gap themselves away from the race for third where Ward emerged ahead when he passed Chapman the next time around. Behind them Prince spun at turn four after a slight touch with Heinrich who eventually finished fourth after a Chapman went off at turn one.
Fifth place belonged to Di Mauro who swapped places with Quinn on a couple of occasions and ultimately crossed the line just in front of his race rival. Then follow the threesome of Brewczynski, Chapman and Bowler with a gap to Rylan Gray (Altima), Adam Clark (Camaro) and McKay. The race finished with local yellow flags waving at Dandenong Road corner where Nick Lichtenberg (Camaro) was stuck.
Battery World AUSSIE RACING CARS SANDOWN FRIDAY WRAP
After he qualified fastest, Joel Heinrich took his Osborn Transport Cruze-bodied Aussie Racing Car to an all-the-way and comprehensive victory in race one of round seven of the Battery World Super Series at Sandown Raceway.
The South Australian came into the final round in eighth place and demonstrated that he could have been at the top of the points if not for some unfortunate bad luck at a couple of previous outings.
He won by two seconds over the Shell Rimula Mustang team mates Cody Brewczynski and Ryan Reynolds where the former appeared to recapture the form that won him two races at round one.
They were part of a five-car freight train that also included equal series leaders Kody Garland (MTA NSW Mustang) and Josh Anderson (CoolDrive Mustang), along with Ryder Quinn (Local Legends Euro GT), and covered by around 1.5 seconds throughout the racing laps.
In their wake, just over two seconds adrift, there was a three-way dice where Anthony Di Mauro (Pour n Polish Camaro) came out on top, ahead of Courtney Prince (Local Legends Mustang) and Lachlan Ward (Productivity Bootcamp Camaro).
Matt Forbes-Wilson (Camaro) was on his own and took tenth place clear of Adam Clark (Camaro), and Rylan Gray (Camaro) while Brett Osborn (Camaro) staved off Kent Quinn (Aurion) and Scott O’Keefe (Altima).
Troy Jones was pushed into a spin at turn two on the hectic first lap jostle for positions and was stranded off track on the outside of turn three. That triggered a short safety car period before the race resumed.
Reece Chapman had to pit to remove body parts off his Mustang after he brushed the wall out of turn four where shortly after Nick Lichtenberg (Camaro) was turned around and suffered sufficient damage to be a non-finisher.
In qualifying Anderson was second fastest behind Heinrich while Brewczynski was next ahead of Reynolds, Garland, Ryder Quinn and Chapman. The session was red flagged for a period after Matt Gooding made wall contact at turn four. His Camaro was repaired for the race where he finished 17th.
