Besnard wins final round of Konica V8 Lites Series

Besnard dominated round five in his Stone Brothers Racing EL Ford Falcon taking two victories and a third, despite a spin while attempting to pass Wayne Wakefield for the lead in race two, where he started from sixth place for the top six reversed-grid race.

Besnard duplicated his round four debut win at Lakeside 3 weeks ago and set a scorching pace. He has been signed by Stone Brothers Racing for a drive in the Shell Championship Series next year and used the remaining two rounds of the Konica series for its driver development purposes before heading to the endurance races later this year.

The series was won by Dean Canto. Second in the series and third for the round was Matthew White. White took two third places and a second in his Challenge Recruitment Commodore.

Despite only racing in the final 2 rounds of the 5 round championship Besnard finished 5th on the popints table.
