Robbie Farr played a patience game at Valvoline Raceway last night (1st Jan) and was well rewarded in the process.
He took the lead in the Firecracker 50 lapper with just two laps to go and crossed the line ahead of Jordyn Brazier and Daniel Sayre.
Jordyn Brazier actually looked like taking victory – he had led the race all the way up to lap 48.
Farr however had other ideas and pounced when the time was right and secured his 45th career feature race win.
Jordyn Brazier top point scored, and started on the front row alongside Sam Walsh.
Walsh dropped valuable distance when he “biked” his car early in the feature and dashed his hopes of a victory at that point.
The 50 lap race was divided into two stints: a first stint of 30 laps, followed by a 20 lap sprint to the flag.
Late in the first 30 laps stint, rising star talent Jessie Attard passed both Robbie Farr and Troy Little for second and came right into the fray – together with Jordyn Brazier, the two young guns put on a tremendous show of driving determination that went well into the 2nd 20 lap stint.
Robbie Farr was elated with his victory and paid a glowing tribute to how hard Brazier and Attard had raced.
