Feeney and Brown wins final two Symmons Plains races
Broc Feeney and Will Brown claimed a win apiece in the last day of Supercars Championship action at Symmons Plains.
The first race of the day started with disaster for reigning champion Shane van Gisbergen who made contact with the wall following an incident with David Reynolds on the first lap.
The Triple Eight driver retired to the pits due to the damage, losing valuable championship points.
The Erebus Motorsport duo of Brodie Kostecki, who started from pole, and Brown headed the field on the first lap.
Feeney shadowed the duo who swapped the lead several times and was able to claim the lead after the pit stops.
The Triple Eight Race Engineering driver won the race close to two seconds ahead of the Erebus duo of Kostecki and Brown.
Cameron Waters was best of the Ford drivers in fourth place, heading DJR driver Will Davison and Walkinshaw Andretti United’s Chaz Mostert.
The third and final race of the weekend had Brown making a strong start to overtake pole sitter Kostecki into Turn 1.
The Erebus Motorsport driver then withstood initial pressure from Kostecki to pull away into a lead he was to keep throughout the race.
Feeney was making strong progress from sixth position on the grid and snatched third from Jack Le Brocq on lap ten.
And the Triple Eight driver was able to gain another position after the pit stops, swooping past Kostecki for second place towards the end of the race.
Team-mate van Gisbergen was also making progress from ninth on the grid and was as high as third at one stage, only to be overtaken by Kostecki with four laps remaining.
Brown won the race close to four seconds over Feeney while Kostecki was almost nine seconds adrift in third.
Van Gisbergen came home in fourth ahead of Le Brocq, while WAU driver Mostert rounded off the top six as the top Ford Mustang driver.
Kostecki still heads the standings, 87 points ahead of team-mate Brown.
The next Supercars Championship race takes place at Hidden Valley Raceway on June 16-18.
