The first of two 200km races making up the Sucrogen Townsville 400 has delivered another Top 10 result for Dick Johnson Racing. Chaz Mostert grabbed the position in the run to the chequered flag passing David Reynolds on the line. It was a great reward for the Wilson Security team and continues the team's upward performance this season.
The action kept coming today at the Sky City Triple Crown in Darwin. Two 100km races faced the 28 car grid and the tricky Hidden Valley layout ensured the big crowd was treated to some wild and woolly racing. The DJR / Wilson Security duo of Chaz Mostert and Tim Blanchard had mixed results in the two qualifying sessions, the best time finally falling to Mostert in P13 for the first race. Race 18 started with an aggressive dice between veteran Russell Ingall and Chaz with Ingall right into the back of the #12 Wilson Security Falcon. Chaz was shuffled back a few spots and sat in 17th as the pit stops began. Blanchard was making good progress passing Moffat and moving into the top 20 on lap 10. With pit stops over the race settled down. Mostert was locked between Tander and Bright in 14th, but his tyre life was fading and he dropped back on the final laps to 17th. Blanchard was able to claw back two spots after his stop to finish 24th.
