Tim Yole & Sam Freeman joint winners BOTRA Novice Drivers Series
Tim Yole and Samantha Freeman ended up squaring the BOTRA Novice Driver Series in Launceston on Sunday night.

Yole took a five-point lead into the final two heats of the series over Freeman and Lyarna Graham but the best Yole could manage from his only drive was a third aboard Helen

Wheels in heat five and he was restricted to a mandatory six points in the final heat as he didn't have a drive.

Freeman had to win the last heat to square the series and she had no trouble in guiding long odds-on favourite Mickwillrev to an effortless all-the-way win to earn maximum points (16).

It was Freeman's second win in the six-race series.

Matthew Howlett finished third with 53 points courtesy of a win aboard Robyn Scherbotsky in heat five that put him in a winning position going into the last heat but he could only guide Little Jethro into fifth place in a field of seven.

Final standings after six heats:

56 - Samantha Freeman and Tim Yole.

53 - Matthew Howlett.

48 - Lyarna Graham and Kristy Grant.

44 - Duncan Dornauf.

41 - Braden Howlett.

36 - Shane Boon.

33 - Nicholas Brockman.

29 - Adrian Collins.
