WILL EVADES CARNAGE TO BAG POINTS IN TASMANIA

A front row Qualifying position for Race 2 of the 3 race weekend saw Will Brown claim a bag of points from the second round of the Dunlop Super 2 Series at Symmons Plains in Tasmania.

Brown came away from the drama filled and heavy hitting round to be now sitting in 6th place in the championship with 408 points.

Paul Dumbrell held off Chris Pither to take out the third and final race for Round 2 of the 2018 Dunlop Super2 Series at the Typerpower Tasmania SuperSprint.

The two-time Dunlop Super2 Series champion took an early lead, having beaten polesitter Pither to the first corner.  Dumbrell seized his opportunity to sneak past into Turn 1 after Pither was slow off the line, a move that was replicated in the opening race of the weekend.

During an action packed race 3, Tyler Greenbury speared into the rear of Brenton Grove during the formation lap, resulting in an extra formation lap and a reduced 29 lap finale.

The drama continued on the opening lap when Kurt Kostecki and Jack Smith made side-to-side contact at Turn 2, forcing the latter wide.

Further contact between Smith and Garry Jacobson spun the Holden and did enough damage to put the Nissan out of the race.

Matt Chahda and Nathan Morcom also made contact further back in the pack, shooting the right-front of the former's Holden into the air.

Later on, Dominic Storey locked-up and went off track at Turn 4, beaching his VF Commodore in the gravel and resulting in a Safety Car.

The full course yellow and subsequent restart did little to the running order, with the race relatively settled in its closing stages.

The third round of the series will take place at the Perth SuperSprint on May 4-6.
