COATES HIRE MELBOURNE 400 – SUNDAY, MARCH 25 – RACE 6
The final race of the event was almost an anti-climax, with a mid-race Safety Car intervention nullifying any threat that the Shell V-Power Racing Team cars may have had to make more ground through the pack. Both Scott and Fabian had a good start, getting through the first turn cleanly with Scott executing a clever pass at Turn 4 to gain two positions on the opening lap.
They then ran nose to tail for several laps until Fabian allowed Scott through to attempt an attack on the Walkinshaw Andretti car of Scott Pye. The Safety Car boards and flags were shown not long after, and the cars rolled around behind the Safety Car for four laps while the fire-damaged No.34 of James Golding was removed from the circuit.
When the race went green again the clock had passed the time certain finish limit, and as such it was the final lap of the race. Scott return the position to Fabian at the end of the lap, with Fabian finishing 6th and Scott 7th. Scott now sits third in the Drivers’ points, with Fabian 14th. The team is fourth in the Teams’ points.
