Ryan Hansford on his way to victory in the final race of the season

Ryan Hansford has taken out the final East Coast Bullbars Australian V8 Utes race and round of the season at Sydney Olympic Park.

Nathan Pretty led the field away from the inside of the front row but there was drama further back as Tyler Greenbury failed to get away and was clouted by Adam Beechey.

With barely two corners completed, the safety car was called, before racing resumed on Lap 4.

Ryan Hansford continued to stick to the tailgate of Pretty, before getting a run on car #56 and taking over the lead at Turn 2 on Lap 6.

Pretty crossed the line second but was demoted for fifth due to a time penalty for a false start, leaving Craig Dontas race and round runner-up.

Gerard McLeod kept out Ryal Harris for sixth, despite Harris’ aggression after sealing the title the day prior.

Outgoing champion Kris Walton ultimately finished the year second in the points.
