Osborn’s Transport’s Joel Heinrich continues to fight off the challenges of his rivals in Race 3 of the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series on the streets of Newcastle.
Starting from pole Heinrich and CoolDrive Racing’s Josh Anderson renewed their weekend long battle, but a mover through the pack was Kody Garland as he sets up a final race attack later this afternoon in his MTANSW Mustang.
In phenomenal efforts overnight, the teams of Cody Brewczynski, Michael Sherwell and Michael Bartsch were all repaired after being heavily damaged in Race 2. A credit to the teams involved, with some spending the night at the circuit to ensure repairs were completed in time for Race 3.
In the fight for the final step of the podium, Garland held off the determined second CoolDrive Mustang of Reece Chapman, Western Sydney Motorsport driver Craig Woods and the repaired Shell Rimula Topgun Race Team entry of Brewczynski.
Leader in the Masters Class, Kent Quinn in the Norganic Proteins Mustang was seventh outright, with his nearest rival Brett Osborn 14thand Motorsport25’s Troy Jones rounding out the podium.
Leading rookie all weekend Rylan Gray dropped out of Race 3 leading to Nathan Williams taking the win from Action Line Markings Scott Dornan and Sherwell in a great reward for his team.
Western Sydney Motorsport’s Craig Thompson edged the Fight MND entry of Jeff Watters in a close battle for Gold Cup, with Matt Gooding’s PCA/MGR entry third.
The sole Women’s Cup entrant for this round, Newcastle local Charlotte Poynting finished 19th outright.
The final race of the weekend for the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series opening round at Newcastle is scheduled to start at 12pm AEDT.
