A string of unfortunate incidents, particularly in reverse grid races, however have prevented that pace from always translating into results.
Scott Pye has been another to be brought unstuck by the carnage; few would have expected him to be level on points with veteran teammate but simulator rookie Mark Winterbottom down in equal 17th.
Of the drivers to have competed in every round, Rick Kelly, Chris Pither and Jack Smith are at the back of the pack. Just ahead of that trio sits Alex Davison, who most notably flipped his Local Legends Commodore at the first corner of a race in Bathurst.
Red Bull Formula 1 star Max Verstappen was a success story in Round 2 but the honour of the biggest haul of points goes to Dunlop Super2 Series leader Brodie Kostecki (246 to 233).
