Patience name of game at Winton’s Enduro

By Meg Saultry

Winton Motor Raceway played hosted to a number of endurance tests last weekend, with conditions clouding the opening day.

The highlight of the round was the Hyundai Excel Enduro Cup, which includes two 90-minute races on Saturday and Sunday.

On the Saturday, it was the team of Cooper Webster and Toby Pope who came out on top, before Ben Grice and Jake Rowe curtailed it home in dryer conditions on the Sunday to cross the line first.

Wrapping up the weekend's results, it was a three-way tie for points between the team's of Ben Grice/Jake Rowe, Max Vidau/Danny Errigo and Cooper Webster/Toby Pope.

In the four-hour HQ Enduro on Saturday, it was a family affair as Bruce and Joel Heinrich came out on top ahead Ryan and Brendan Woods, while in the East Coast Super Mini Challenge, Craig Lindsell and Linda Devlin finished the round tied for first.

Red hot: Iain McDougall speeds to a race five win on Sunday in the East Coast Super Mini Challenge.

The final day’s racing was filled with spectacular racing, as Lindsell took out race three of the weekend, while Devlin edged out her rivals in race four.

It all came to a head in the final race of the weekend, but it was Iain McDougall who flew home for the win, followed closely by Lindsell and Devlin.
