Bathurst, all Australian drivers seem to be unbeatable at the track, Sonny Kanchin was no different, going wire to wire in the third round of the Mazda MX-5 World Tour.

He got pole over David Hampson by an impressive three tenths, with Pagnan in third. Derick Holland got the AM class pole, beating pro driver, Nicolas Berger for eleventh place on the grid.

The top three stayed the same after the first lap, Drees Nice got up to fourth, overtaking Steven Van Opstaal in the process.

Kanchin was passed by Hampson as they went onto lap four, until Kanchin retook the lead going into turn two, three wide on lap five.

Pagnan tracked out at turn three, pushing Drees Nice into the wall, collecting Hampson, ending all three drivers races.

Stef Veenhof came into the pits with nine laps to go, from an AM class battle. He jumped Derick Holland with a pit stop that was two and a half seconds quicker than his rival.

The leader, Sonny Kanchin came in to make his stop with seven laps to go, he was followed in by Gianni Quintelier. Van Opstal jumped Quintelier who came out in third, right behind Van Opstaal.

Two of the series organisers, Jeroen Ursem and Tripp Smith were battling for a top ten position. Ursem went for the move on Smith going into the Chase, whilst he was sideways trying to save his car from smashing into the inside barrier, he somehow made it stick

Meanwhile, Quintelier and Van Opstaal were still battling and after changing positions a few times in the last few laps, Quintelier learnt to hang back and waited for the final lap to make a pass going into the Chase. Quintelier made the move stick to get second place, as Kanchin crossed the line to take another Mazda MX-5 Wolrd Tour win.
