Victory for Joel Heinrich in Race 1 at Queensland Raceway

It was Osborn’s Transport driver Joel Heinrich converting pole into victory during Race 1 of Round 2 for the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series at Queensland Raceway.

The race was completed under safety car conditions, Heinrich had just taken back the lead from the MTA NSW entry of Kody Garland as he remained second ahead of Cody Brewczynski of Western Sydney Motorsport.

Garland won the start and held the lead as the first safety car period was called as the Guardian Interlocks entry of Reece Chapman stopped exiting Turn 2 as a tow truck took to the track to collect the stricken entry as the field was neutralised.

It was this restart where Heinrich took advantage to overtake Garland and add another race victory as he bolsters his title defence.

This occurred just before the second interruption courtesy of Andrew Corish finding the gravel trap at Turn 3 and this forced the race to finish under safety car.

Behind the top three was Riskie Racing’s Brandon Madden moving up two spots as Masters Cup winner Kent Quinn followed in the Norganic Proteins entry, while Nathan Williams for Competition Coatings was the big mover moving from 12th to sixth.

Corish Motorsport driver and 2022 series winner Josh Anderson was seventh from Rookie Cup leader, teammate Mason Harvey, Gold Cup winner Scott Dornan for Action Line Marking as Cody Mckay completed the top 10.

Anthony DiMauro was 11th, while Jordan Freestone was another to make plenty of ground after starting 18th.

Quinn led Mckay and MSS Group’s Scott O’Keefe in Masters Cup, while Harvey won Rookie Cup from Corish Motorsports’ Jordan Freestone as Chris Mercer in the City Sweep Racing entry completed the top three.

Behind Dornan in Gold Cup was Team Grand Racing’s Denis Butler and the Fight MND entry of Jeff Watters.

Retirements alongside Corish and Chapman, who endured gearbox failure also included Kyle Ensbey.

Race 2 of the Battery World Aussie Racing Cars Super Series at Queensland Raceway commences at 3:55pm AEST.
