This is Rattray’s fourth championship win over his career. Rattray came into the final round with a 14 point advantage over David Waldon /David Catt from Hobart driving a Subaru WRX STI RA.
Dean Howard and Adrian Hodgetts of Burnie won the 2WD class in their Holden VP Commodore V8 with a consistent run over the five5 rounds contested.
A disappointed Aaron Reader, leading the 2WD class into the final round, suffered mechanical damage in both heats, putting him out of contention for the series.
2WD class entrants, Stephen Turner, Kurt Whiley and Kade Barrett reminded the more senior drivers that they will need to watch their backs over coming years, with consistent improvement during the year.
The event attracted a class field with Andrew Whiley/,Craig Brooks, Jamie and Simon Vandenberg, and Sam Button all competing for the win on the day.
David Waldon, with a one shot chance at the title, had to win both Heats, with Rattray no further back than fifth to take out the series win.
The final results for the day's competition showed Waldon winning from Sam Button in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, with Rattray /Hills a calculated third place, giving him the series win.
