STEVE GLENNEY has defeated Will Orders in a thrilling Super Final conclusion to round two of the RXAus RallyCross championship at Marulan, using the dominant DUNLOP Direzza Z2.
Across a pulsating six-lap final, Glenney and Orders were never split by more than half a second in a race that came down to joker-lap tactics within the final two laps.
Orders used the Joker – a one-use-per-race longer section of the circuit – on his penultimate lap, counting on getting track position on Glenney when he took the detour on the final lap of the race.
When Glenney took his on the final lap the pair emerged on the final straight side-by-side, with only Glenney’s added momentum allowing him to edge Orders home for a narrow victory – by 0.4 seconds.
