Ricciardello continues winning ways as minor placings sorted.

Having already secured the Reward Insurance Australian Sports Sedan Championship didn't stop Tony Ricciardello from going out a winner as he won the final race of the last round of the title. Again Ricciardello and the Alfa/Chev scored maximum points with pole and two wins.

Meanwhile the fight was on in earnest not only in the championship, but on the track as several battled for the minors. Dean Randle in his Saab/Chev could do no better than a pair of seconds but it wasn't enough to obtain him a podium place in the championship, having to settle for fourth.

Behind him there was enormous battle for position with Mick Monterosso, the early leader in the reverse top ten start, continually under pressure from Darren Hossack's Saab/Chev, Kerry Baily's Nissan 300ZX/Chev and the Jaguar XKR/Chev.

After several positional changes amongst the group, Hossack emerged with third and that gave him the runner up position in the Championship. Baily took fourth position, just in front of Jameson as Monterosso finished sixth ahead of Wilson who took a series third.

Despite a early race spin Stephen Voight fought back to claim eighth position in the Chev Monza clear of Mark Duggan's Holden Calibra/Chev and the Commodore VN/Chev of Michael Robinson.
