Porsche Carrera Cup Australia held their 3rd round at the Rennsport event, this round had two 1-Hour races on Saturday and Sunday. The drawcard for the mini enduros however was to be a swap to a second driver around the half way mark. Teams had a good pool of top drivers to pick from with it being in between rounds for the V8s meaning drivers such as Shane Van Gisbergen, Garth Tander, Lee Holdsworth & Nick Percat. Shane showed once again his brilliance in anything with 4 wheels & a motor, with a storming rear of field 20th to 2nd drive before handing over to Paul Kelly.

Even minutes before the race Garth & Nick were cracking jokes with Shane, just a way to ease the tension before the hour race.
