Aaron Seton wins Sydney Trans Am thriller

Aaron Seton won a thrilling final Trans Am race at Sydney Motorsport Park.

The regular front-runner found himself in a wild three-way battle for the lead with Nash Morris and Nathan Herne in the opening few laps of the race.

While it was Morris that initially led the way, Seton was able to snatch the lead with a clean move into Turn 1 on the start of Lap 5.

Herne and Tim Brook quickly followed him through, that trio then battling it out to the finish.

They ended up finishing in that order with less than a second and a half between them.

There was plenty of action behind the leaders as well, Owen Kelly the centre of attention as he put on an incredible drive from the back of the grid.

The former Supercars driver made remarkable early progress to go from last to the fifth in just six laps. A tangle with Kyle Gurton then dropped him back into the midfield, before another charge yielded 10th by the finish.
