Adam Beechey has produced a perfect night of racing to claim the win and the series lead in the Walsh Marine Services Tasmanian Super Sedan Series!
Beechey won both of his heats to qualify on pole position for the twenty five lap main event.
Laura Davidson claimed the win in heat three, whilst eight time Tasmanian Champion David Nichols claimed two second place finishes to join Beechey on the front row.Nichols won the start, firing around the outside of Beechey into the lead in the early stages.
The lights went red on lap three, after Tim Johnson rolled in turns one and two. Nichols continued to lead Beechey, with Steve Latham right on their tails in third.
The caution again came out on lap nine when Davidson and Robbie Bird came together, exiting the race from fourth and fifth respectively.
Nichols would lead the race until lap thirteen, when traffic would become a major factor.
Beechey was flawless in traffic, making his move and running away with the lead. Nichols and Latham ran a tight tussle for the minor placings, with Latham coming out on top in the final corner of the race! Marcus Alexander completed his best finish of the season, crossing the line in fourth, with Dwaine Sonners rounding out the top five.
Beechey now leads the series heading into the final round next weekend in Hobart, with Latham the only driver who can catch him!
