Full Leads Performance Series After Second Win

MITSUBISHI driver Geoff Full stamped his authority on the 2002 Australian GT Performance Championship by wrapping up the opening round in Adelaide today.

Full finished the weekend with the maximum possible 31points from pole position and two wins, giving him a seven-point lead over defending champion Brett Peters.

Peters' Subaru Impreza STi led the heavier Mitsubishi away from the start and took the lead for the first three laps.

But when Full got past, Peters continued to fight and over the last three laps each broke the lap record twice. The gap between them at the finish was just 1.1 seconds.

"That was a great way to start the season, but I don't expect it to continue. This was a Mitsubishi track but next we go to Symmons Plains in Tasmania and the power of the Holdens will be a big threat," Full said.

Third and fourth places were taken by Graham Alexander (Mitsubishi Evo V) and Peter Floyd (Holden Commodore GTS), in a reversal of their finishing positions yesterday.

Round two of the championship will be run at Symmons Plains, Tasmania, on 5-7 April. This weekend's races will be shown on Speedweek on SBS TV from 3.30 pm on Saturday 30 March.

RESULTS - Race 2 (12 laps):
1. Geoff Full (Mitsubishi Evo VII)
2. Brett Peters (Subaru Impreza STi)
3. Graham Alexander (Mitsubishi Evo V)
4. Peter Floyd (Holden Commodore GTS)
5. Wayne Boatwright (Subaru Impreza STi)
6. Mark King (Mitsubishi Evo VII)
Fastest lap: Full 1:34.30 (record)

CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS: 31 Full, 24 Peters, 18 equal Floyd/Alexander, 11 Boatwright, 10 Roma.
