Adam Bywater takes out round 3 of the Superior food service challenge in style winning the final two races on Sunday which saw conditions remain steady with a massive threat of rain.
Race two saw Nathan Blight mount a small challenge for the race win until gearbox failure saw and early retirement from the lead of the race and the round, handing a fast approaching Bywater the lead and race win. Team mate Tim Yates finished in a strong second place to have a Hi-gloss body works finish 1-2 for race two.
Kaide Lehman recovered well to place third in race two after contact with another car in race one bent the read end of the Bendigo Door centre machine. Brendan Avard having a much stronger round along with Neville Blight, with both drivers running spare engines to round out the top 5.
Ash wright lived up to his new nick name “Enforcer” driving the wheels off the Brown Davis excel to finish a cracking 6th from starting 19th.
Race 3 looked to start in wet conditions with a massive threat of rain while the pre grid was formed. Again it was Bywater who bolted from the start and looked to have it all his own way, until a fast finishing Lehman made a last lap attempted to steal the race win. Yates, old man Blight, Avard, Stubbs and wright all fighting hard for track position, and the final place on the podium.
In the end it was Bywater home in first and claiming the round win. Lehman a close second and Yates rounding out the podium.
