Hossack wins as Sports Sedan title battle heats up

Darren Hossack has taken the opening race of the weekend for the Kerrick Sports Sedan Series at Queensland Raceway on a day where Kerry Baily saw his points lead slashed.

Hossack started from just third position but found himself passing Tony Ricciardello for the lead midway through the second lap.

The order at the front remainder unchanged for the duration – Hossack eventually taking the win 6.4s clear of the Alfa pilot.

The result was enough to see Ricciardello slash his points deficit to Baily from 81 points down to 53 after mechanical dramas took the pole-sitting Aston Martin out of the contest on the formation lap.

Shane Bradford benefited from the drama to finish third in his Camaro ahead of Phil Crompton’s new Ford Mustang and Jeff Barnes’ Pontiac Firebird.
