Paul Dumbrell overcame a determined Todd Hazelwood to continue his winning ways in Race 2 for the Dunlop Super2 Series at the Clipsal 500 Adelaide.

Dumbrell lost the lead to Hazelwood at the start but managed to wrangle it back into the Turn 9 hairpin on lap 10 of the race.

The Eggleston Holden driver controlled the remainder of the race to take the flag 1.2576s clear of Hazelwood.

Jack Le Brocq’s #28 Nissan Altima was third, pressuring Hazelwood in the closing stages.

Brad Jones Racing’s Macauley Jones and Andrew Jones rounded out the top five.

Eggleston rookie Will Brown showed impressive speed, securing P6 ahead of defending Super2 champ Garry Jacobson, who was issued a bad sportsmanship flag for kerb overuse.

An issue with Jack Smith’s Commodore at the start line saw  Adam Marjoram hit him hard from behind, causing a safety car.

The rookie was left with a broken shaft from the gearbox and pierced fuel tank before he had even crossed the start line.  

Richard Muscat held P3 ahead of Le Brocq from the start but soon pitted reporting a misfire.

Anton De Pasquale took the flag 12th but was demoted a place after a five-second penalty for tangling with Josh Kean, who limped home 18th.

The Dunlop Super2 Series will be back on-track for the final race at the Clipsal 500 at 11:25 local time tomorrow.
