Jason Sides doubles up in Tasmania

Latrobe Podium

The top three finishers in last night's World Series Round at Latrobe (L-R) James McFadden (2nd), Jason Sides (1st) and Steven Lines (3rd)

American Jason Sides has continued his winning ways by taking out round four of the 2010/2011 World Series Sprintcar Championship at the Bendigo Bank Arena in Latrobe, Tasmania last night.

Sides, who was in his last drive for the Krikke Motor Sport Team while filling in for Brooke Tatnell, took the rain-delayed win ahead of national champion James McFadden and Monte Motorsport pilot Steven Lines to make it two wins in as many weeks on the Apple Isle.

In the main event Sides started from position three and was never seriously challenged on his way to victory before crossing the line ahead of Ian Madsen.

Madsen was one of the big chargers through the field, starting from 19th and crossing the line second but was penalised eight spots for illegally passing four cars.

Robbie Farr, who won the first two rounds of the series in Queensland, struggled last night following a decision to mount a harder tyre compound to his Orrcon Steel-backed East Coast Pipeline entry.  After starting seventh, Farr finished finishing 15th.

As a result of his second straight win Sides took over the series lead, however, Farr will move back to the top of the points with Sides being replaced by Tatnell next round in the Krikke entry.

American Jason Johnson had a night that he would rather forget.  The two-time ASCS Champion endured a heavy rollover in his heat race that led to some rapid repairs to his Haynes Motorsport entry.  As a result, Johnson started deep in the B-Main before making his way into the final transfer position and salvaging a hard-fought 12th placing in the main event.
