Gilmour Racing's Cameron Shields has taken out a closely fought weekend in which both he and Jones Motorsport's Harri Jones won races all Premier Class cars led at some point.

It was a very eventful start to the weekend with half of Practice abandoned as torrential rain caused flooding to the track and paddock area. Shields took the All Properties Pole Position in a close qualifying session ahead of Jones and the second Gilmour Racing entry of Chris Gilmour. R-Tek Motorsport's Roman Krumins took the National Class Pole in a close session with the top 4 separated by only 1.6 seconds.

In Race 1 Jones got the jump and was able to hold out Shields for the duration with Gilmour further back in 3rd. Jason Hore took the National Class win after jumping Krumins at the start with Andrew Roberts in teh second R-Tek Motorsports car 3rd.

Race 2 started in controversy with Gilmour overlapping Jones at the start, this allowed Shields to get through to the lead. Gilmour was penalised with a drive-through penalty. Shields took the win after a race-long dual with Jones, Gilmour was a distant 3rd. Krumins took the National Class win ahead of Blake Varney who had fuel pickup issues in Race 1, Hore was 3rd.

The final race of the weekend saw a close call between Jones and Bruce McKenzie, Shields had successfully lapped McKenzie around the outside going into turn 2 but when Jones tried to follow there was contact. Jones came off unscathed whilst McKenzie took a trip through the infield before recovering. Shields took the win and the round ahead of Jone and Gilmour. The National Class saw a close battle between Hore and Krumins with Hore finding a way through with 3 laps to go to take the round win by 1 point over Krumins, Roberts was 3rd for both the race and round. Rielly Brook took out the trophy class.

Round 3 is back in Queensland again at Morgan Park on June 8-10
