Points were the difference for Fabian Coulthard.
Winning is sweeter this month than last according to Lockwood Racing's Fabian Coulthard, who blitzed the field in Tasmania today for his first Championship win.
Points were the difference for Coulthard, who scored 100 for today's victory unlike his none-championship win at AGP round last month.
Qualifying for tomorrow's two 100km races gets underway at 10.10am.
Fabian Coulthard "The win at the GP didn't go towards our championship so this is sweeter. One that counts means a little bit more so it's pretty awesome to finally get one.
"Qualifying on the front row is also nice. We need to make up for the poor result we had at Clipsal. We took a pretty big hit there and we've got a lot of work to do. The key is to finish races.
"I don't see myself going anywhere. I've got a good home in BJR; I've found a team I'm comfortable with and it shows now in my results."
