was un­be­liev­able, and I was shocked that I was able to get to the front as quickly as I did, but the track just opened up for me on the first lap as my ri­vals drifted wide and that pre­sented me with the op­por­tu­nity to keep pick­ing them off,” he said.

Rowe’s WA #97 KTEQ Rentals Hawk pow­ered Ea­gle was pro­vided to him by Steven Gra­ham and his grand­dad Johnny Fen­ton.

“I can’t thank Johnny and Steven enough for the awe­some set-up that gave me for the fea­ture race,” he said.

“When I have such a great car un­der me, it makes my job out on the track so much eas­ier and it was with­out a doubt one of the main keys to my suc­cess on the night.”

Rowe first came to promi­nence through kart rac­ing.

This year he has raced in the Aus­tralian Fo­mula-4 cham­pi­onship, sit­ting fourth on cham­pi­onship points, and the For­mula Masters China Se­ries, where he is third on the driver lad­der and his team’s first.

Rowe is plan­ning to con­test the in­au­gu­ral Pro Speed­car Week, the Aus­tralian Ti­tle at Valvo­line Race­way, and the Western Aus­tralia-based Speed­car Grand Prix Se­ries.
