The Repco Mt Panorama 500 marked a number of key firsts in the Dunlop Series, with several Super2 starlets making their presence felt.

The weekend featured two first-time pole winners, a first-time race winner, a first-time round winner, and the first ever rookie of the round winner.

The Triple Eight Race Engineering duo shared the spoils on Saturday, with Angelo Mouzouris claiming his maiden Super2 pole.

The teenager ousted teammate Broc Feeney to claim P1, before Feeney struck back in the day's race.

Feeney carried the iconic #888 to a strong victory in Race 1, which was his first in the category.

His weekend wasn't all smooth sailing, however, with Feeney losing the equal championship lead following an incident with Jayden Ojeda on Sunday.

Ojeda began Sunday with a stunning lap to clinch his maiden pole in the series.

The MW Motorsport driver, who made his Bathurst 1000 debut last year, crossed the line ninth following the incident with Feeney, and was elevated to eighth following the Triple Eight teen's penalty.


Through all the chaos, the biggest smiles were reserved for Jordan Boys, who claimed his maiden round win.

It came after the Image Racing drive crashed heavily in Friday practice, with the team repairing the car.

Boys and Feeney were level on points for the weekend prior to the latter's penalty, but Boys claimed the round win on a countback.

It marked Boys' maiden round victory, coming off the back of his third Super2 race win and first since the 2019 Newcastle finale.

He was joined on the podium by impressive rookie Matthew McLean, who was awarded the inaugural Rookie of the Round award, which will be backed by Let's Go Motorhomes in 2021.

McLean recorded finishes of sixth and seventh on his debut for Eggleston Motorsport to leave Mount Panorama sixth in the standings.

The Super2 and Super3 drivers will return to Victoria for the Winton SuperSprint across May 29-30.

The event will be broadcast live on Foxtel and the Seven Network, and will be streamed on Kayo. Check out the full TV schedule here.
