Young gun Edan Thornburrow led Turtle Wax Trans Am Series debutant James Moffat in the GRM Ford Mustang featuring a tribute livery to father Allan’s all conquering 1969 example.

Grice continued his strong pace in third, while Gurton led Bargwanna to complete the top five.

Moffat, Thomas, Thornburrow, McAlister and Loscialpo rounded out the first 10.
