HUNTER EDGES CLOSER TO KUMHO V8 CAR SERIES TITLE
Pollicina took his ex-Jason Richards/Tasman Motorsport Commodore VZ to fifth place in todays race to keep the title fight alive but didnt have the outright speed to challenge the front runners.
Series debutante Marcus Zukanovic put in perhaps the drive of the race as he took his newlyreliveried ex-Garth Tander Toll HSV Dealer Team Commodore from 16th – and last – on the grid through to finish third.
Queensland young gun Morgan Haber finished fourth clear of Pollicina Justin Garioch Matt Hansen Bobby Jane Michael Hector and Ian Yeing who seized 10th place at the final corner after passing Maurie Pickering.
Fourteen of the 15 starters were classified as finishers with Aaron Tebbs HDT/Sydney Star Commodore the only retirement.
Shane Hunts ex-Brad Jones Falcon AU didnt take the start after clutch problems in practice while Lyle Kearns ex-Paul Morris Commodore suffered engine dramas in Friday practice and was withdrawn.
