STEVEN JOHNSON has maintained his perfect run of success in the ENZED Touring Car Masters Series, winning his third round from three this year at the Shannons Queensland Tourist Trophy at Queensland Raceway.
Though Johnson won all three races at the Ipswich venue, his round win didn’t come easy: first having to fend off Andrew Miedecke in race two and then his own teammate – and car owner John Bowe – in race three.
Miedecke grabbed an early lead in race two before Johnson chased him down and passed him, while in the finale’ he led from lights to flag but had to withstand a challenge from Bowe in the closing laps as the Torana driver rapidly closed.
Johnson won the round ahead of Miedecke (two seconds and a third) and Bowe.
Jason Gomersall (iSeek Racing Holden Torana) won the ProAm class on a countback, tying on points with Tony Karanfilovski for the class victory, with Ian Palmer’s Pontiac Firebird third.
Leo Tobin won Pro Sports, and as he was the only entrant in the class this weekend also scored second and third place as well.
Charlie O’Brien won the TransAm class ahead of Brett Curran and Ian Woodward.
