Mostert, Mawson and Jones take the wins

10/04/22

Super supports set up Sunday.

An action-packed Support race program has come to an end at the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022 and there are some new winners, old winners and candles blown out.

Under brilliant skies at Albert Park, the Shell V-Power Ford Mustangs of Will Davison and Anton De Pasquale led early in the final Supercars races, while Shane van Gisbergen made his way through the field.

The pitstops decided the issue. While the Fords and van Gisbergen pitted early, Chaz Mostert stayed on the track and when he made his stop, he was in the leading, celebrating his 30th birthday by going on to win by 5.2s.

But it was not van Gisbergen who was second, a tyre failure on the last lap dropping him to 20th. Will Davison took second from Shell V-Power teammate Anton De Pasquale, with Tim Slade fourth after Cam Waters got a five-second penalty.

As a result of the races, van Gisbergen has extended his championship lead from 67 to 144.

The Red Bull Ampol Holden driver now has 803 points over De Pasquale’s 659, with Mostert third on 641. Will Davison is fourth on 622 ahead of Brodie Kostecki’s 553. The next round of the Supercars is in Perth on the weekend of 30 April-1 May.

The S5000 open-wheelers started proceedings on Sunday morning and Joey Mawson was the man who dominated the race. The former international won by a margin of 5.5s from Nathan Hearne, with Tim Macrow in third place.

All three drivers were on the podium to celebrate with Alan Jones, the 1980 World Champion presenting the trophy named in his honour.

Over the weekend Mawson was the dominant driver, and he now leads the championship points after the first round, from Herne and Macrow.

In the Carrera Cup race, Harri Jones took advantage of an early incident involving Aaron Love to take the win. Queenslander Jones just finished clear of veteran David Wall and Max Vidau, while Sam Shahin won the Pro-Am class from Stephen Grove.

In the series points, Loves leads on 136, 18 clear of Vidau. Wall is third on 109 from Jones on 90. In the Pro-Am class, Emery leads on 131 from Shahin on 104 and Grove on 104.

All is now in readiness for the Formula 1® Heineken® Australian Grand Prix 2022, which is due to start at 4:00 pm.
