S5000 win for Ngatoa in Darwin

IT WAS double delight for Team BRM in race two of the S5000 Australian Drivers’ Championship at Hidden Valley as Kiwi star Kaleb Ngatoa claimed the race win and Joey Mawson did enough to provisionally seal the Gold Star for 2022.

Ngatoa made a perfect start from the front row of the reverse top-eight race and then withstood attacks from James Golding to record his third career S5000 victory.

Tim Macrow held on to third despite a damaged front wing, with Aaron Cameron and John Martin rounding out the top five.

Mawson drove a conservative race to cruise home to sixth position and provisionally claim the championship for the second straight year.

Ngatoa had qualified in eighth, finished the opening race in the same position and retired from the final third race.

Cameron led from lights to flag in the 20-lap season finale to win the final round while Mawson etched his name into the record books as a back-to-back Gold Star winner.
