ENZED sponsored Supercar young gun Cam Waters and co-driver Richie Stanaway led the most amount of laps of a competitive field at Bathurst on the weekend before finishing in a disappointing 16th position. In what was a rain-soaked affair, the young Sandown 500 winning duo excelled in difficult conditions to break out to a lead of over 30 seconds throughout the middle sector of the race.
As the race drew to a close the team was caught out by a poorly timed safety car which brought the pack back together before becoming tangled in a clash with Garth Tander and team mate Chaz Mostert. The resulting damage brought the car in for another pit stop which ensured the team was 2 laps down by the time the chequered flag was waved. It was a disappointing end to a day that promised so much.
“Second race in a row we had a car that could win, and just was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Tried to push on and see if we could salvage anything, but nothing worthwhile. It’s a shame to have the day end like that, but that’s racing,” said Waters at the end of the event.
The series now moves onto the final round of the Enduro Championship, the Gold Coast 600, which will be held on 20-22 October.
