Last night heats 6 and 7 of the Australasian Young Drivers Championship were held at Young. Andre Poutama continued his great run, picking up two more third placings.

In the first heat of the night, Andre’s runner had to work hard early, but managed to hold on for third place.

Sam Ottley and Simon McMullan struck some bad luck when the horse in front of them paced roughly and carried them back to finish 8th and 9th respectively.

The second heat saw Narissa McMullen from Queensland pick up her second win of the Championships after a confident drive. Sam tried to chase down the leader but came short and ran 2nd; Andre wasn’t far off Sam and finished in 3rd position. Simon’s horse held on for 6th after doing some work during the running.

Dylan Egerton-Green from Western Australia closed the gap at the top of the leader board, but Andre still sits in front with a lead of 7 points. Andre has now had seven drives in the Championship for one win and five placings, only being out of the top three in one heat.

The current leader board after the first seven heats is as follows:

Position Driver Points

1st Andre Poutama (NZ North) 66

2nd Dylan Egerton-Green (WA) 59

3rd Narissa McMullen (QLD) 54

4th Samantha Ottley (NZ Sth) 46

5th Amanda Turnbull (NSW) 42

5th Aiden De Campo (WA) 42

7th Aaron Bain (SA) 41

8th Dylan Ford (TAS) 40

9th Joshua Duggan (VIC) 33

10th Simon McMullan (NZ) 29

Heats continue at Bankstown tonight with Heat 8 (5:14pm NZT) & Heat 9 (5:53pm NZT), with the final heat

being the first race on Inter Dominion Grand Final day on Sunday afternoon (2:30pm NZT).
