New South Welshman David Wall has dominated the third round of the 2010 Australian GT Championship at this weekend's Sports Car Carnival meeting at Eastern Creek.
David qualified second and won both endurance races comfortably.
As the field went to the dummy grid for the first of the weekend's hour-long races rain started to fall.
"We went out to the grid on slicks before the rain started to fall, but we made the call that it was not enough to change tyres" said David after the race.
"I stayed out until lap 12 when we made the call to pit.
"Coming in three laps earlier than Hackett was enough to allow me to pull out a comfortable lead before he rejoined. From there it was a fairly comfortable run to the chequered flag."
David started from pole position in the second of the hour-long endurance races and thanks to a good start was able to hold onto a lead he only relinquished during his pit stop.
"My Wilson Security backed Wall Racing Porsche Cup S ran perfectly this weekend. We have been continually finding small gains as the season goes on and I think we have got the set up as good as we can for this round," said David.
"The team have done a great job yet again giving me a car to win this weekend.
"My thanks also go to my sponsors Shannons, Payce and Mount Aqua for their continued support."
David will not have time to enjoy the success of this weekend - heading straight to Winton for more track time in a V8 Supercar.
Tomorrow David will again be out in the Fair Dinkum Shed Commodore in preparation for his role as co-driver to Karl Reindler for this year's V8 Supercar Championship endurance races.
All the action from this weekend's round of the Australian GT Championship will be shown on Friday 18 June at 18:30 on ONEHD. Check your local guides.
