Fujitsu Ford Falcon driver takes second BNT series win of the weekend, Angus Fogg and John McIntyre completing the podium.
Fujitsu Ford Falcon driver, Kayne Scott, increased his BNT NZ V8s series points lead today by winning the Timaru round’s second race in emphatic style.
In a mirror image of the race one podium, fellow Falcon drivers Angus Fogg and defending champion John McIntyre, finished second and third.
The race started behind the Safety Car after Inky Tulloch’s Falcon broke down in an unsafe pace on the warm-up lap.
At the green after two laps, Scott took the lead, pursued by Fogg and McIntyre. There was the usual funnel effect into the first corner after the start, and fifth-on-the-grid, Tim Edgell, found himself emerging in seventh place in the Chesters Falcon.
The top three opened a gap over Craig Baird (United Video Falcon) and the first Holden runner, Andy Booth in the Big Ben Commodore.
Andrew Anderson (ITM Commodore) and Edgell battled for sixth, with Anderson dropping off the circuit and losing places to the chasing Fords of Eddie Bell and Michael Bristow.
Falcon racers, Luke Youlden, Paul Pedersen and Andrew Porter, all pitted for mechanical repairs, and Andy Knight (Milwaukee Falcon) and Paul Manuell (Orix Holden) battled furiously for 12th place. Knight finally got the better of the fight.
McIntyre (Castrol Ford) tried repeatedly to pass Fogg’s LG Electronics Falcon, and Fogg closed on Scott several times.
But Scott held him off to take his fourth win of the season, making him the 2008/2009 series’ winningest driver.
