Thomas Randle had an unhindered run to the first corner in race 2, after Broc Feeney stalled on the front row of the grid. Feeney endured an anxious few moments as those behind swerved to avoid the stationary Boost Mobile Ford Falcon. Miraculously the field moved by before Feeney was able to fire up his car and trailed in last place.
Jayden Ojeda moved alongside Randle and looked to sweep around the outside at turn 2, but slip off track on cold tyres. Angelo Mouzouris followed Ojeda with the pair fortunate to maintain the 2nd and 3rd places on the run towards turn 4. Brodie Kostecki looked for a way past Mouzouris with race 1 winner Will Brown close behind.
Kostecki ran off track at turn 5 as he looked to take 3rd and set himself for a pass at turn 6. Brown also came under intense pressure from Matt Chahda, Jack Perkins and Jaylyn Robotham on the run towards Corporate Hill. Brown withstood the challenge and then claimed 4th from Mouzouris in the final series of corners before the completion of lap 1.
Jack Perkins moved into 6th place on lap 2 with an inside pass on Chahda at turn 2 as the field began to settle. By lap 10 Broc Feeney had driven back through the field and into 10th place. Randle held a 2.6 second lead over Ojeda, with Brode Kostecki 5.8 seconds behind. Brown was fourth from Mouzouris, Perkins, Chahda, Best, Robotham and Feeney.
Will Brown closed on Kostecki during the closing stages of the race with the Image Racing Commodore displaying battle scars and a loose panel on the left rear of the car.
Thomas Randle took the win from Ojeda and Kostecki. Brown, Mouzouris, Perkins, Best, Feeney, Robotham and Boys rounded out the top 10. Robotham took out the Super 3 category from Declan Fraser and Jon McCorkindale.
“Apart from not winning yesterday, I really had a dream run, and it will be nice for the boys to go home with a result like this”, Thomas Randle reported to MW media. “They have basically been away from their homes for two weeks, so to give them this, after a five month break, is fantastic. The restart incident in Race 1 was unfortunate. I was glad that the stewards were able to look into that. That would have really changed the course of the weekend. To get both poles and help MW Motorsport who now have the most poles in Super2 history, is really cool.”
