V8 UTES STATS

DAVID “Side­ways” Sieders has surged into the top three of the Aus­tralian V8 Ute Rac­ing se­ries af­ter a pair of im­pres­sive wins at the Townsville 400 yesterday.

Sieders started the fi­nal race from pole po­si­tion af­ter his race two win ear­lier in the day and he held the lead com­fort­ably in both events to take his first race wins for the year and first in a Holden.

Races two and three had iden­ti­cal top threes with Sieders lead­ing home Adam Mar­jo­ram and Nathan Pretty to com­plete two straight races of Holden dom­i­nance.

“I think the Holden is what I needed to get the mon­key off my back here in Townsville, we’re so happy to fi­nally get a podium and race win this year,” Sieders said. “We got great starts all week­end and I know it’s tes­ta­ment to the team’s work on the car.”

Sieders’ win put him into third place in the over­all stand­ing, 20 points be­hind Mar­jo­ram in sec­ond and 30 adrift of se­ries leader Ryal Harris, who slumped to fin­ishes of ninth and 14th on Sun­day.

“Bring on the rest of year,” Sieders said.
