Aaron Love and Max Vidau shared the spoils across the day’s three races as Harri Jones claimed the 2019 series crown.
Jones held a 92 point advantage heading into the weekend, wracking up fourth place finishes in the opening two races before fifth in the final to claim the title.
Vidau started the weekend with a narrow win over Love, a tenth of a second splitting the pair after nine lap encounter with Ryan Suhle third.
It was Vidau’s ninth win of the year, setting a new lap record at 1:51.4061.
However, fourth place proved enough for Jones, the Queenslander 62 points clear of Love with 60 on offer across the final two races of the season.
Love then claimed victory in the weekend’s second race, Vidau slipping to third as Suhle climbed to second.
The finale then went the way of Love, Vidau climbing back to second with Suhle third once again.
Sam Shahin claimed the ProAm class title, while David Greig took Class B honours for older spec machinery.
