King and Bowe split the Sunday race wins and clinched their respective ProAm and ProMaster TCM Classes in the Shannons Thunder Valley 100, while a starring performance from Cameron Mason – the son of 2007 TCM champion Steve, saw him seal the ProSports class.

Chevrolet Camaro driver King held out the field in an incredible race two on Sunday morning, battling for seven laps with Falcon driver Adam Bressington before a Safety Car ended the race.

The Whiteline Racing Camaro driver started second in the reverse top-eight race and battled early leader Adam Bressington relentlessly in the opening laps, before boldly passing around the outside of turn one for the lead on lap six.

The race was a thriller for the first six laps with a freight train of ten cars locked together, battling for position. The Safety Car was called when Leo Tobin’s HQ expired on the sixth lap, depositing oil across the circuit at turn four – catching out several top-ten runners.

Jim Richards survived for third (from seventh on the grid) and Keith Kassulke fourth. Bowe finished fifth ahead of Eddie Abelnica, Brett Youlden, a recovering Cameron Mason (who dropped as low as 14th following a bold move for the race lead at turn one saw him run wide), Wayne Mercer and Jason Gomersall.

Bowe led from pole in the final race and was pressured by Richards for the 10-lap distance, the pair never split by more than ten seconds.

“We’ve had some great races over the years,” Bowe said.

“There was a bit of cat and mouse going on, and my car was better in some spots and his better in others and we left the rest of the field behind a bit because they was squabbling.

“I couldn’t let up and I’m sure he couldn’t let up. It’s great to be back here and I can’t wait to come back when they’ve resurfaced the track. Our cars are badly affected by the surface and they slide around a lot so it will be good to come back when we have some grip!”

King climbed to third position at the end, passing Keith Kassulke mid-race to get himself onto the outright podium ahead of the Falcon driver and Camaro driver, Andrew Miedecke.

The Chevy driver was caught out in the race two dramas, his car spearing off the circuit and out however the experienced ace was able to recover strongly with his top-five run in the finale’.

In the ProMasters battle, Bowe won the round ahead of Richards and Keith Kassulke, with King heading home Adam Bressington and Tony Karanfilovski in the ProAm fight.

Two wins from three races was enough for Cameron Mason to seal his class fight ahead of Chris Stilwell and William Vining.

Ford Falcon GTHO driver Wayne Mercer won the Rare Spares Achievement Award by virtue of his run of top-ten race finishes this weekend.

Returning Porsche racer Amanda Sparks won the Meguiar’s ‘Looks Good, Goes Great’ award thanks to the immaculate presentation of her Porsche 911 RS.

Chris Stilwell won the PWR ‘Cool Master’ award thanks to his comeback from a near non-finish in race two, to scoring second for the round at Hidden Valley.

The next round of the ENZED Touring Car Masters series – the TCM ‘Thunder Down Under’ will be held with the V8 Supercars at Sydney Motorsport Park on August 22-24.
