Craig Dontas has claimed 3rd Overall and had a podium finish in two Races in the V8 Utes at the Townsville 400.
Race 1 – Position 3
Racing in his first Race in the Australian V8 Utes Championship since 2016, Dontas returned to the category with a bang, finishing 2nd & 3rd in the practice sessions.
Dontas qualified 3rd for the first Race in Townsville and was in the midst of a battle back for 2nd for the majority of the race.
Much like most of the field, Dontas finished where he started in P3.
Race 2 – Position 6
Dontas had a great start to Sunday’s first Race and was battling for position before he spun on Lap 9 of 14.
The spin was the result of a deflating tyre and Dontas was unable to catch the front of the field but managed to finish in 6th.
Race 3 – Position 3
Dontas was able to reach 3rd in the final Race at Townsville, despite the shortening of the session.
