Broc Feeney dominates Perth finale
Broc Feeney ensured that there would be three winners from the three races at the Perth SuperSprint with a dominant victory in the final race of the weekend – giving him a second win of the 2023 Supercars season.
The Triple Eight driver held the lead off the line having started from pole ahead of points leader Brodie Kostecki, who managed to hold on to second ahead of team-mate Will Brown into turn one.
However, Brown quickly managed to get ahead of his fellow Erebus man to grab the position with the trio holding the top three places before the pit stops took place.
With Brown and Kostecki both ending up battling with an early-stopping Tim Slade when they came back out, Feeney was able to dive in for his mandatory tyre change and return to the track ahead of his rivals to secure a relatively comfortable race win.
Brown took second spot ahead of Kostecki, but he was still able to extend his lead in the championship standings to 100 points over Chaz Mostert.
Mostert would take the flag in fifth spot behind David Reynolds, with Cam Waters, Will Davison and Slade rounding out the top eight.
Slade’s decision to pit early would ultimately be the key factor as to why he dropped down the order as he struggled with his tyres late on but he was still able to finish ahead of a huge battle for ninth that was decided in favour of James Courtney.
Courtney would fight hard to keep Scott Pye at bay with James Golding and Shane van Gisbergen also embroiled in the fight.
Van Gisbergen would be on the back foot from the start of the race having only qualified back in 21st place on the grid, with twelfth being the best he could manage.
