Cooper Murray has recaptured the outright points lead of the Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge Australia series with victory in race two at Winton Motor Raceway.
The Victorian lost the top spot to Simon Fallon after Fallon won Saturday’s race one endurance battle, with second place handing Murray the Jim Richards Endurance Trophy win.
Murray then improved in race two to take a narrow victory over Fallon, while Jimmy Vernon held off Max Vidau for third place. Vidau was fourth while Tom Taplin repeated his race one effort with fifth place.
An impressive race for Chelsea Angelo saw the Wall Racing driver come from the rear of the field to sixth outright, slowing working her way through the leading Pro-Am contenders throughout the race.
Marcel Zalloua took back-to-back Pro-Am wins from Sam Fillmore and Brett Boulton, while Christian Pancione recovered from a race one DNF to win Class B – and place 10th overall – from the rear of the grid.
Race three will be held at 11:55, which can be viewed via the Shannons Nationals live stream, available at www.thenationals.com.au.
