David Sieders dominated the final V8 Utes Racing Series round at Symmons Plains to clinch his third race win of the 2016 season.
The Holden pilot managed to snatch the lead from pole-sitter Ryan Hansford at Turn 2 after the flag dropped.
Hansford kept pressure on Sieders throughout the following 21 laps in the hope a mistake would be made, but the Mango Credit-backed racer held firm to secure the chequered flag.
Shadowing Sieders and Hansford was Nathan Pretty in 3rd, while 2014 champion Kris Walton recovered from a slow start to come home in 4th.
The only incident of note occurred on lap 17 when Mason Barbera ran into the back of Kim Jane at Turn 6, which saw the former receive a drive-through penalty.
Hansford’s second place saw him take the round win while Sieders extended his lead in the championship.
The V8 Utes Racing Series heads to Phillip Island for the third round of the season from April 15-17.
