Round four win for Maiolo
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.
