Mega GEARS Round 2 Report – Mosport

Kyran Parkin rebounded from his disappointment at Bathurst by taking a lights-to-flag victory in the second race at Mosport Park in Canada.

The Fury Racing driver had a near-perfect event and won by 32 seconds from Bathurst winner Lazaros Filippakos. Campbell Wallis took the final podium position after tailing Filippakos earlier in the race, but nearly came unstuck with a penultimate lap crash. However, with a 20 second gap to Mark Singleton, Wallis survived a last corner attack which saw Singleton spin to take his first podium of the season.

April Carlsvard scored her first points of the season in 5th, a lap ahead of James Lambert, who in turn was a lap ahead of Matthew Wheeler. Martin Fernandez took the final points position in 8th. Racing with a hand injury, Mike Bell ran 2nd in the early stages but unfortunately started to struggle and slipped down the field before a late collision with Carlsvard dropped him out of the points. Craig Woollard finished a lonely 10th after a mid-race run-in with Singleton. Arwyn Bock, making her Realish Racing debut, had an eventful first race with several trips to the pits for repair, but she eventually finished a classified 11th, albeit well down on the rest of the pack.

The next round is on Sunday, 12th April 2020 at Barber Motorsports Park, USA.
