Brenton Grove wrapped up his second season in the Dunlop Super2 Series with a pair of top 10 results at Newcastle with Triple Eight Race Engineering.
Despite an up and down weekend the 22-year old managed to finish both races in the top 10 on the streets of Newcastle for the final round of the series.
The Grove Hire/Daikin/Dynamic Steel Frame/Metroll backed Triple Eight Holden VF Commodore driver wound up eighth in the 2019 series standings on 1062 points.
Grove qualified ninth for Race 1 and held fort through the 21-lap encounter, maintaining his position to take ninth at the chequered flag.
A minor hit with the wall in Sunday’s qualifying session saw him start Race 2 from the last row of the grid.
Grove battled through to 10th on the road in the early stages of Race 2, before picking up more positions on the penultimate lap following an incident between other competitors.
It saw him cross the line eighth, up five positions from where he started.
“The day on Sunday didn’t start off the right way with me making a mistake and finding the fence. Afterwards the whole team did an amazing job to fix the car and tune it up for the race. The car was an absolute jet in the race and thanks to the efforts of everyone I was able to make some spots up. Amazing effort by everyone and a solid end to the year.”
