Gary Higgs has won round 2 of the Super Sedan Summer Series, while Paul Bowman and Nui Andrews have shared the Ken Taylor Highest Points award in an exciting day of racing at Les Gorman Park on Saturday afternoon.

Mt Barker Speedway Club hosted the second round the SSSS and Higgs dominated from start to finish, going through the afternoon undefeated on his way to feature race success.

After winning all three of his heat races, Higgs led all 20 laps of the feature race and proved too strong for his rivals to cross the line 2.98 seconds in front.

Bert Vosbergen was running second for the first 14 laps of the race before getting caught up in an incident and losing his position.
