Hobart’s Mitch Evans had the wood over the Heavy class taking the win from sprintcar ace Jamie Bricknell and Spreyton’s Mattew Distill.

In the TaG Restricted classes, young Launceston drivers Jonty Darcy, Andrew Lee and Calvin Broad battled it out all day before Broad claimed the victory in the final ahead of Darcy and Lee.
