Qualifying was 5 rounds with all to count and each round ran over 10 lap heats, different format to usual events but none the less exciting. TQ for this Event was Aaron Stringer.
After Semi finals had been run Kyle McBride (Durango/AKA) comfortably found himself on grid 1, followed by Steve Perry(losi) on grid 2 and Tim McKay(Serpent/AKA) off grid 3. At the sound of the buzzer Kyle raced away from grid 1 followed by most of the field, Tim McKay off grid 3 flamed on the start line and was late away. Mid way thru the race, leader Kyle ran into some problems and retired. With the quickest driver now sidelined the remaining drivers continued to battle it out and with about 10mins to go Tim McKay hit the lead and apart from a flameout at the last pitstop(which pitman got car restarted very fast) cruised for the last few mins and took the win for serpent. Also in 5th place was another Serpent 811 driven by Shane Freiberg who had only had the car a few weeks.
