Scott Gilles wins 2WD at Victoria State champs

Scott Gilles wins 2WD at Victoria State champs

The prestigious Victorian State Titles were run last weekend in Australia, with entry numbers pushing 200 and temps over 30 degrees Celsius for the weekend, there was sure to be some hot action. Sunday saw some very strong fields assemble for the 2WD competition, and it was Schumacher’s Scott Gilles who topped the leader board of the Spec motor class in rounds 2 and 3, seemingly securing him the TQ. However, the round 1 winner had other ideas and drove a superb race to eclipse Scott’s time and take the round win in the 4th. This meant Scott would start 2nd on the grid. Leg 1 of the finals saw Scott get off to a great start, shadowing the leader for three laps until he made a small error, the Schumacher driver then made a clean pass and went on to win. Leg 2 saw Scott get involved in the typical first corner struggles and he ended up in 3rd place after some mid-field chasing. In the third leg, Scott made a clean start and put his Cougar buggy into the lead on the second corner, never to be headed or challenged, winning the state title right after taking the runner-up spot the day before in the 4WD class.
