Michael Patrizi has claimed his second win in as many races in Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia at Bathurst.
The West Australian led from the start of the nine lap race, which was started behind the safety car after Jeremy Gray spun his GT3 Cup Car on the warm-up lap.
Patrizi won the race by 1.17s from Briton Ben Barker, who passed Bathurst veteran Steven Richards on the second lap of the race.
Richards held on to take third from Craig Baird, Daniel Gaunt and Jonny Reid.
Tim Leahey and Matthew Coleman finished seventh and eighth respectively, while Max Twigg claimed the Elite Class honours after a late-race tussle with Damien Flack.
Race 3 for the Porsche City Index Carrera Cup Australia will be held on Sunday morning, the final race before the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000.
