Doug plays it safe with his damaged accelerator. Russ doesn't take any risks here. Jason uses his last resources and pulls even with Russ. Will plots 100 and late brakes successfully to get through Europcar. Chris enters the corner without the arrow, rolling a chance. H\s car gets loose and he spins into the wall. He is done for the day. Brent tries to coax a bit more out of the transmission and he hears something snap. He is going to have trouble shifting. Kevin is right behind him.

Doug keeps his steady acceleration across the line for the win. Jason pushes top speed and makes it, pulling even with Doug for second. Russ pushes acceleration and crosses in third. Will continues safely. Brent jams the transmission into third gear. Kevin drops his last two wear to pull even.

At this point the race was called as no positions were in question.
