TWO TITLES TO BE DECIDED THIS WEEKEND
Two titles will be decided this weekend as the final round of the CAMS Australian GT Trophy Series presented by Pirelli heads to Phillip Island.
The event will draw a close to an exciting and highly-competitive debut season for th series, with both the Trophy and Challenge class titles to be settled on Sunday.
Rob Smith currently heads the Trophy class after seizing the points lead from Greg Taylor at the last round at Queensland, and also claimed his first-ever round win.
Smith is now 40 points clear of Taylor, with Mathew Turnbull sitting in third.
The Phillip Island circuit is home turf for Turnbull and his Lamborghini Gallardo, with two more Gallarados entered for the round, driven by Francis Pacentino and Jan Jinadasa.
Fresh from his debut at Queensland, Travers Beynon also returns to the series.
In the Challenge class, Scott Hookey claimed a clean-sweep, and now only needs 63 points to clinch the class victory.
Ockert Fourie is Hookey's main challenger, and will pair up with Brendan Cook.
Despite the MARC class title winner being decided at Queensland, Jake Camilleri will wear his win proud and heads a competitive field.
John Goodacre will make his debut in the class, with Keith Kassulke, Mick Benton, Jason Busk/Sam Gerrard and Jack Smith entered in the class.
Track action begins on Friday with opening practice in the afternoon.
