With a late race move for the lead in Race 5, Cameron Waters (No. 6 Monster Energy Ford Mustang) took home his first race win of the BP Supercars All-Star eSeries on Wednesday evening, en route to securing runner-up honours in Round 2 of the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship’s online series. For the second straight week, Waters was the second-highest points scorer of the night, and has established himself among the more consistent strong finishers through seven races.
Despite a dismal result in that Race 5, Will Davison (No. 23 Milwaukee Racing Ford Mustang) remained strong through the remainder of Wednesday night, chalking up finishes of eighth, seventh, and fifth to conclude a solid evening, securing himself firmly in the top ten of the championship.
A top ten start for Lee Holdsworth (No. 5 Truck Assist Ford Mustang) was wiped away on the first lap of Race 4 as he was collected in a first corner melee, finishing 20th in the first hit out. Holdsworth did improve his finishing position in every race, but found trouble more than he would have liked, scoring a best finish of just 12th in Race 7.
Jack Le Brocq’s (No. 55 Supercheap Auto Ford Mustang) fortunes were even worse than Holdsworth’s on Wednesday, as the 27-year old was collected in incidents not of his doing in all four races, finishing between 16th and 18th in each.
The BP Supercars All-Star eSeries resumes on Wednesday, 22 of April as the championship heads back to Australia to race at the country’s crown jewel, Mount Panorama at Bathurst. Live coverage of Round 3 begins at 6:00 p.m. AEST, and can be found on Fox Sports 506, Kayo, Sky Sports NZ, Ten Play, and Supercars’ channels on Twitch and Facebook.

“Most of the races tonight I was around 12th, 13th, 14th, but yeah, it’s a shunt-fest the first couple of laps and then it sorts itself out. I had good speed today but got shuffled back with damage and people running into you and stuff like that. We’ll keep pressing on, I think next week I’ll have to be the Enforcer rather than the one that’s copping all the beef from everyone. The conservative game didn’t work this week, so I’ll attack harder next week and see if that pays off.”

“It was pretty cool to get the race win in Race 5. I had a good battle with Jake (Kostecki) there coming to the end and got the job done, even though it’s not the real thing it’s cool to take a race win. Tonight was a lot of fun, I had some really good battles and there was lots of carnage. A good night, and a big one up next week with Bathurst, so bring it on.”

“A very different week for us from last week. We unfortunately found ourselves in someone else’s shunt every race tonight, even with a team mate or two! It was good fun though and I had some great battles throughout the races. Everyone’s stepped it up from last week too, which is good to see, and I can’t wait to get back at it next week.”

“Qualifying was really tough to start, I didn’t record a time for Race (4) because I exceeded track limits so I started from the back but worked my way back to eighth. Then the reverse grid race I got caught up in the opening lap madness, but it was good to score a couple of strong results and finish off with a fifth in the last race. I’ve made some gains since last week, but need to work harder for next week. All in all it was a fun night, I really enjoyed some of the battles tonight.”
Tim Edwards, Team Principal
“There were two stories among our guys tonight, Cam and Will had pretty solid nights overall, and Lee and Jack couldn’t buy a break. That’s the way it goes in motorsport sometimes, and even more so as unpredictable as the eSeries is turning out to be. Great to have Cam get a race win, and he’s right in the thick of the championship which is great to see. The competition is getting tighter and tighter, and I’d bet everyone will be laying it on the line to win next week at Bathurst.
