Blair Orange has opened up a 27 win lead in the race for this years New Zealand Drivers Premiership premiership title.

Orange is currently sitting on 61 wins this season, while last years premiership winner Dexter Dunn is in second place with 34 wins.

The TAB have opened up a futures market (Option 997 Outright winner) this morning for the outright winner of the premiership with Orange a hot favourite to take the title at $1.35 and Dexter at $2.90.

TAB bookmaker Richard Wilson said, "There has been quite a bit of interest with punters wanting us to open a market for a while now."

This time last year it was quite even between the two drivers at the end of November with Blair having won 49 races and Dexter having won 46 races at the same stage, before Dexter kicked away near the end and won by 35 races.

Dexter usually has a strong last few months so it could be an interesting battle between the two if the gap narrows before then.
