Three more heats of the Australasian Young Drivers Championship were held at Bathurst last night.

Sam Ottley picked up a win in the first heat. Andre Poutama also had a good night, gaining three placings and increasing his lead in the Championships.

In the first heat Sam started her night strong with a win in the third heat of the Championships and first heat of the night. She drove the horse brilliantly and was able to hold off Dylan Egerton-Green from Western Australia who finished in second. Andre stuck on for a good third and Simon McMullan’s horse tired after having to work hard early.

Andre continued his great run in Heat 4, holding on for 2nd after sitting parked throughout. Simon came into 7th place and Sam’s runner got back and failed to run on.

Heat 5 saw Andre finish the night well, bringing up another 3rd placing. He has now had 5 drives in the Championship for a win and three placings. Sam ran home late for 6th and Simon came in 9th.

Andre has a strong lead of 13 points. The current leader board after the first five heats is as follows:

1st        Andre Poutama NZ North            49
2nd       Dylan Egerton-Green – WA         36
3rd        Amanda Turnbull - NSW             35

5th        Narissa McMullen - QLD            32
5th        Samantha Ottley – NZ South      32
