That’s a wrap from the Townsville-double, with today concluding two rounds in North Queensland.

Race 18

Chaz Mostert: 3rd
Bryce Fullwood: 14th

Chaz made it 2/2 in the top-three, with his second consecutive podium finish of the weekend. He started third, finished third, and ran third all race, but it wasn’t as simple as that in the final few laps. He had to have the elbows up to hold off a fast-finishing Will Davison in the last two laps, doing a great job to keep him behind.

Bryce showed great pace in the first stint, but after stopping relatively early, struggled late with tyre life, dropping him down the order to 14th.

Race 19

Chaz Mostert: 9th
Bryce Fullwood: 11th

A pit stop issue meant Chaz had to get busy towards the end of the race. At one stage he was 22nd, before charging back through the field to 9th in an amazing drive.

Bryce got another blinder of a start and was running in sixth, before an unfortunately timed safety car pushed him back a few spots after stopping. He battled hard towards the end, just lacking that tyre life balance to move back into the top 10.

Chaz Mostert

“Pretty cool weekend up here in Townsville overall, when you consider where we were last weekend, to then walk away with two podiums was awesome.

“Wish we had of started higher up for the last one to push for a third trophy, but still, we will take it.

“A big thank you to everyone for their hard work here, it still blows me away the commitment and passion in this team. A special shoutout to everyone back in Melbourne and Sydney at the moment, we are thinking of you.”

Bryce Fullwood

“We passed a lot of cars to come 11th today that’s for sure.

“Results don’t probably show it, but there were a lot of positives to take from the weekend.

“I feel like with the direction we are headed a good result is just around the corner, just hoping for everyone here, that it’s next time we racing.

“Looking forward to going through everything we’ve leant these last two weeks up here, and getting back out there soon.”
