Erebus Academy driver Jobe Stewart has claimed second overall at Bathurst after securing two second place finishes in the Super3 category. 

Meanwhile, his Image Racing teammate Jay Hanson, hit the track with something to prove after yesterday’s crash and managed to cross the line just outside the top five in P6. 

Having qualified P2, Jobe was separated leading Super3 driver Cameron McLeod by four cars, though by the end of the opening lap, that gap had increased to six cars. 

At the same time, Jay managed to gain one position throughout the opening lap to sit P9 where he remained until Aaron Cameron ran wide midway through lap 3, making room for Jay to claim P8. 

Lap 7 saw Jay utilise the opportunity presented at Forrest Elbow to pass Nash Morris to now sit three positions higher than he qualified. 

Meanwhile, the Super2 cars had begun to overtake the Super3’s and there were now only two cars separating Jobe and McLeod with the gap continuing to close. 

By the penultimate lap, Jobe was directly behind McLeod in P1, though with a nearly 6 second gap to him, he was unable to catch him but still crossed the line P2. 

The second to last lap also saw Zane Morse stumble into pit lane, with Jay now progressing to P6 where he would remain until the checkered flag was waved. 

Jobe continues his Super3 Championship reign and has extended his lead to 246 points, while a tough Race 1 yesterday resulted in Jay now sitting 7th in the Super3 Championship. 

The Image Racing duo will return to the track for the final round of the  Dunlop Series at the Adelaide 500, 23 – 26 November.
