Craig Vosbergen last night claimed his first feature win of season 2014/15 and the first round of the Transpacific Cleanaway Bunbury Track Championship as he led every lap to record a solid win over Brad Blake and Jay Cardy.
Vosbergen was at the front of the field all night, recording a third and a second in his two heats before winning the top six dash to set up a pole position start for the feature. He beat fellow front row starter Brad Blake off the line and was never seriously headed, although Blake was right on his tail for most of the race. The race had a few incident throughout; the first being when Jason Moyle spun on the front straight and was hit by Michael Holmes. Both continued and the race resumed.
The yellows came out for a spun car on lap eight, then came out again when Peter Seaton and Morgan Melvin tangled in turn two. The last thirteen laps ran without a stoppage and it was Vsbergen who crossed ahead of Blake and Cardy. Phil Zuidema was next (and in the process collects the Speed Torque All Stars bonus as the first eligible driver home), followed by Holmes Matt Goodlad, Nat Muir, Dean King, Morgan Melvin and Jeff Rogers.
Earlier in the night heat wins went the way of Blake, Holmes, Cardy and Zuidema.
The next Late Model Show will be the return of the Pro Dirt Series to Kalgoorlie Speedway on the 22nd of November.
