March 6, 2016 10:40 pm

The Australian GT series were first on track on Sunday, at the Clipsal 500, for the final race of the weekend.

After a post race penalty to another team from Race 2, Dean & Andrew were bumped up to P15. Andrew started the race but on the first lap he got caught up by other peoples mistakes & dropped back to P20. He managed to steer clear of it all but by the end of the first lap, the safety car had been called.

The race restarted on Lap 5 & Andrew worked on moving up the grid. By the time he came into the pits, he’d moved up to P14. On Lap 11, he entered pit lane & handed the car over to Dean.

By Lap 18, Dean had moved his way through the field up to P7.  He went on to finish the race in 4th.

Dean: “Today’s race was great. There was a lot of bumping & crashing going on & we managed to steer clear of it. Andrew had to deal with another safety car but I really enjoyed being able to race for the whole time I was in the car. We’re really happy with 4th place.”

The race 3 result pushed Dean & Andrew up to 9th in the Championship.

Dean: “It’s awesome that we’re sitting in 9th. After the exclusion from Race 1, I didn’t think there was any way we’d be close to the Top 10 so to leave in 9th, I’m pretty happy.”

The next race of the Australian GT Series is at the Australian Grand Prix on March 17th – 20th
