The 22 finalists received their medallions prior to the start of the final, but Trouchet was eliminated from the race after an incident on the opening lap.

Jarrod Pearce was deemed the primary cause of the next two stoppages, ending his race prematurely after qualifying in ninth position, and Fisher was the next casualty, retiring with a flat right front tyre on lap seven.

Beau Oldfield delivered a faultless performance to lead all the way in the final to defeat Esperance local Chris Dickerson and Kalgoorlie’s Kayne Dellar in an outstanding night of racing.

Pearce finished eighth on points after the qualifying heats with 96 points, followed by Fisher on 92 and Trouchet on 76.
