Toyota 86 Series
The 86’s – all 39 of them had qualifying first up for the day, luckily Phillip Island is a long flowing circuit, this would give the field some space to bank a good qualifying lap, however during the session there were a number of close calls as everyone vie’d for the fastest lap. Liam McAdam (QLD) managed to do this with a lap time of 1:51.714 under the lap record. Second fastest was Tim Brook (NSW) from Tasmanian Adam Gowans.
In the race McAdam continued his dominance over the class field and lead for the full duration of 8 laps, fighting his way through to second was Jaylyn Robotham and coming home in third spot was Brook.
