Round four win for Maiolo

South Western Times - - Classifieds - Mor­gan Melvin

Brad Maiolo claimed round four of the Madding­ton Toy­ota Sprint­car Series at the Make Smok­ing History Bun­bury Speed­way on Satur­day night.

Maiolo won the 30-lap fea­ture race from Mitchell Wor­mall and Jamie Maiolo in a drama-filled race that took a cou­ple of at­tempts to get un­der way.

The first at­tempt at get­ting pro­ceed­ings un­der way stalled early, when Ja­son Pryde spun in the first turn and restarted from the rear of the field – al­beit with a dam­aged front wing.

Kaiden Man­ders, who started from pole, had fresh air in front of him, but Brad Maiolo was the early bolter on the high line and ended up set­ting the pace.

Ben Butcher, who started from the rear of the grid, looked strong and had pushed his way into fifth by lap six be­fore Brad Maiolo hit the lead over Man­ders on lap nine.

Maiolo would lead the re­main­ing dis­tance but a restart with six laps to go would ig­nite Wor­mall, who started to trade mul­ti­ple blows with Jamie Maiolo be­fore claim­ing sec­ond place, some­thing he held onto un­til the che­quered flag.

Ash Hounsfield also re­turned to the win­ner’s cir­cle in spec­tac­u­lar fash­ion, claim­ing a strong fea­ture win dur­ing round six of the Keen­quip Wing­less Sprint club cham­pi­onship.

Hounsfield would not be chal­lenged in the fea­ture race after start­ing on the front row along­side team­mate Chad Pit­tard.

In other events, Alec Melvin recorded an ex­cit­ing win in the Pro­duc­tion Sedan fea­ture race, while Jamie Har­ris and Matt Kennedy would take the spoils in the Leg­end car and V8 dirt mod­i­fied events re­spec­tively.
