Finch Rolls, McEwen Wins Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge Race In A Thriller

The first Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge race at the Formula OneĀ® Rolex Australian Grand Prix was dramatically cut short after Rachael Finch rolled her All-New Mazda3 half-way through the weekend's first race.

Trying to recover from an off at turn 10, Channel Nine presenter Clint Stanaway was attempting to control his car before hitting Finch. The contact saw her All-New Mazda3 flip onto its roof and crash into the concrete barrier.

The event's first rollover since Luke Darcy in 2008, safety crews were on the scene in seconds, checking that the former Miss Universe Australia and television presenter was safe. All-New Mazda3's five star safety rating, advanced SKYACTIV-Body, along with CAMS and FIA approved roll cage, race seat and six point safety harness did their jobs to perfection with Finch exiting the car with a smile, waving to the cheering crowd.

Prior to the race-stopping incident, Tour de France star Robbie McEwen and Socceroo great Brett Emerton had a fantastic battle for race winning honours.

Racing bumper to bumper, McEwen eventually passed pole-sitter Emerton to take the chequered flag.

Grease star Rob Mills was third, with Torah Bright the first woman home in fourth and Tim Robards fifth.

Nova breakfast presenter Tommy Little was sixth, followed by Catriona Rowntree, Lydia Lassila, Maz Compton and celebrity chef Adam D'Sylva making up the top 10.

The Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge concludes tomorrow with the second and final five lap race.
