the line. I’ve been waiting all year to grab that first
win and it’s great to have finally done it on the last
race of the last round,” said O’Keeffe.
Simpson was thrilled to equal Matt Kingsley’s record of
nine straight race wins and claimed the final
Professional Class round win of the season from O’Keeffe
and first time podium-getter Hamish Hardeman in third.
“It’s great to equal the record of nine straight race
wins. It was tallying up there for a bit, but Dylan just
pipped me there for the 10th win, which would have been
good but wasn’t meant to be. It was still a great

winning enough races to rack up enough points.”

season with two race wins in class to win the Sydney
round from John Karytinos and David Ryan.
“Winning the Elite Class championship was my goal all

very happy with the results. It’s a good, solid
championship and it wasn’t easy to win, which was the
best bit,” said Emery.

season following a year-long on track tussle with Jaxon
“It been great racing with Jaxon this year; it’s been
really close and we’ve been pushing each other all year.
I can’t thank Scott Taylor Motorsport enough for this
opportunity and obviously Jaxon for the great battle.
Fortunately, we had the weather fall our way in race two
with our tyre selection and it played our way.”
Evans placed second in class for the season from Jim
