Holden Colorado driver Tom Alexander took a commanding victory in the second race of the inaugural ECB SuperUtes Series event at the Adelaide 500.

Alexander led from start-to-finish, steering his Ross Stone Racing entry to maintain a comfortable lead throughout the race, ultimately finishing more than 10 seconds clear.

Woods was initially Alexander’s closest challenger, but was passed by Race 1 winner Ryal Harris on the second lap.

Harris, though, slowed and then pitted his Mazda on lap six of the eight to retire from the race, elevating Woods back to second and Toyota’s Matthew Mackeldon to third.

Ben Walsh finished fourth, ahead of Team Triton pair Toby Price and Craig Dontas.

Price was in the thick of the fight for the lead on the first lap, but spun and clipped the wall exiting Turn 11 and fell down the order.

Teen racer Tomas Gasperak was seventh, while Christopher Formosa failed to finish and Aaron Cameron pulled in on the formation lap.

The third and final race of the maiden ECB SuperUtes Series weekend commences tomorrow morning at 10:15am local time.
