S5000 LATEST NEWS - 17 NOVEMBER

 John Martin scored an unlikely S5000 feature win in an incident-packed single-seater feature race at The Bend in South Australia.  Anton de Pasquale was first to the flag but was penalised twice, once for tagging his team-mate Tom Randle on the first lap of the race and the second time for a jump-start, with the 15-second hit dropping him to fourth. So the revised order put Randle into the runner-up spot with Will Brown in third. 


There were three retirements that left seven cars at the finishing flag, but James Golding and Tim Macrow both went out after contact and Michael Gibson had a rare S5000 mechanical failure. The South Australian weekend was only the second in the history of S5000 and the finale, after a qualifying sprint and then a reverse-grid contest, was drama packed with rare car-to-car contact.
