Despite his liking for the wide open spaces of the Pinjarra track, which gave Tom Buchanan wins in a heat and final of Garrards Junior Concession Driver Challenge Two, he failed by three points to catch Harley Matthew who won the $500 Garrards Voucher on offer for the winner of the series.
Buchanan also collected $500 worth of vouchers for Challenge Series Two courtesy of his two winning drives.
Winners of each heat and final of each series earn a $250 Garrards voucher with a $500 voucher for the winner of each series.
After the running of Series Three in May 2014 the points from each series will be added together and the driver with the most points will be declared the winner of the Garrard's Junior Concession Driver Challenge.
The winner of the Garrard's Challenge receive $2,000 cash from Garrards and will be Western Australia's representative at the 2014 New South Wales Rising Stars Series.
After the running of the second series there is a logjam at the top of the leader board with Kristy Sheehy and Stuart McDonald tied on 43 points, one ahead of Tom Buchanan with 42 and Series One winner Kiara Davies on 41 points. Davies had limited driving opportunities in Series Two due to a stable accident putting her on the sidelines.
Series Three of the Garrards Junior Concession Driver Challenge will be run in May 2014.
