CIRCUIT: Tough Weekend for Boley at Phillip Island for Shannon's Motorsport Australia Championships

A tough weekend for the only West Australian in the field at Phillip Island with some mechanical gremlins creeping in and no qualifying time set due to another car having an incident in qualifying, however plenty of support from back home lifted his spirits.

Boley started from 21st on the grid based on his practice time and managed to work his way up to P15 by the end of the First race with Nathan Herne taking out the win followed by Owen Kelly and Tim Brook.

Race 2 saw Boley finish down in 23rd after picking up a 10 second penalty for what he called a rookie mistake. At the pointy end Owen Kelly took out the first step with Tim Brook and Nathan Herne behind.

Heading into Race 3 with hopes of finishing the day on a high, Boley unfortunately suffered a mechanic issue with two laps to go and him being shown the mechanical black flag. At the time he was running in P13 in the large field.

At the start of the final race there was a massive off for Ben Grice who came off and managed to rejoin the race without causing any carnage behind him or to himself.

Final race results were Nathan Herne first followed by Owen Kelly and Cody Burcher behind. Owen Kelly’s second was enough for him to secure the round win.

The Trans Am series next heads to Mount Panorama as part of the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour.
