Prodrive racer Richie Stanaway continued to impress on his Super2 debut, demoting veteran Paul Dumbrell to third on the opening lap. 

Series leader Todd Hazelwood battled hard, rocketing through the pack after starting ninth.

Hazelwood and Stanaway fought for second in the final laps before Stanaway slid wide at turn eight allowing Hazelwood to take the advantage.

Hazelwood, who set the race’s fastest lap, still holds the Dunlop Super2 points lead ahead of Dumbrell. 

Defending Super2 Series winner Garry Jacobson finished fifth ahead of Jack Le Brocq and Richard Muscat.
