  • A week after being the runner up in the opening round of the Super Sedan Summer Series, Gary Higgs has dominated the second round of the series at Les Gorman Park, Mt Barker in the Great Southern of Western Australia on Saturday afternoon, winning all three of his qualifying races, before leading all the way in the Feature event.

    The main event was conducted on a very dry race track, understandable in some respects, at a day time venue, with temperatures reaching 34 degrees.

    Higgs and veteran Bert Vosbergen would start on the front row, after the duo won five of the eight qualifying heats between them. Robin Knox would start on the second row with Damon Trouchet, with Higgs getting the best of the start.

    The first eight positions would remain the same through the first fourteen laps, with Higgs leading Vosbergen comfortably, with Trouchet, Knox, Chris Pavlovich and Lee Aylett filling the first six placings.

    With four laps remaining, and with Higgs in heavy lapped traffic, the only stoppage of the twenty lap A Main came when Vosbergen spun in turn two, bunching the field for a five lap restart.

    Higgs would go on to hold the lead, and win upon the resumption, downing Damon Trouchet, Robin Knox and Chris Pavlovich. Lee Aylett and Kyle Larson swapped positions several times in the final laps, with Aylett officially fifth by 0.096 ahead of Larson, Tony St Jack and Bert Vosbergen, who was the final driver to complete all twenty laps.

    Earlier on a much wetter race surface, Rob Knox would win twice and Damon Trouchet once, joining Higgs and Vosbergen as heat race winners on the day.
