Baird pips Gaunt in shock Carrera Cup finish
Craig Baird has taken a surprise victory in Race 2 at Phillip Island in Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia.
Yesterday’s winner Daniel Gaunt looked to have the race in the bag when entering the final straight with a substantial lead over Baird, however a fuel pressure issue approaching the finish line slowed his car, allowing Baird to drive passed and take the victory.
Gaunt, who led from the start of the race and maintained a substantial gap throughout, crossed the finish line in second.
Behind Baird and Gaunt, Jonny Reid finished second ahead of Steven Richards, Ben Barker, Elite Class winner Damien Flack, Max Twigg, Michael Patrizi and deutant Jeremy Gray.
The third and final Carrera Cup race of the weekend will take place at 12:25 this afternoon.
