By the time lap one was completed VX50 Luke Wheel would lead a three-way battle continuing at the point for majority of race lap distance.
Fans were treated to an epic display of slide jobs throughout the full 30 laps, but it was the final 10 laps which had everyone on the edge of their seats, Ross was on a charge as he chucked in a monster slider in turn 1 & 2 which didn’t pay dividends this time by but would open the door as lap traffic started to play into the hands of everyone but the leader.
Entering the final 5 laps Ross choice the moment perfectly to take control with a title winning moment as he blew by Wheel for the lead, with laps counting down fast Ross had to hold off a number of challengers who were putting everything on the line.
