Lamb contended with top qualifier Kevin Clarke and the fastest driver of the night Lennie Clark, coming away with the victory in the 35 lap final.

Almost twenty competitors vied for the three-litre title including the top three drivers from the previous season. 

Lamb established early dominance in the first heat race, running about .3 of a lap faster than his competitors and making it to the finish line 3.5 seconds ahead of the second-placed Michael Boyle.

In the second heat, it was Clarke who was successful with a victory by less than a second over the Daylesford Speedway racer.

It was another second placed result for Lamb in the third heat, and he qualified on the outside front row position for the final.

After a rain delay, Lamb set out to lead his challengers in his final event. One of his main rivals in Clarke dropped out on lap 10, but Lamb was closely followed by Clark and Andrew Ahearn. 

He took the win .554 of a second from Clark, who had the fastest lap of the night at 16.345 – the top six cars set laps under the 17 second mark despite several rain delays throughout the event. 

Ahearn, Michael Boyle and Lucas Conder rounded out the top five results.

Meanwhile Jason Crawford won the Grand Prix Midgets, Mark Purdie won Street Stock, Corey Knox won the Open Sedan Final and Ballarat racer Darcy Wilson won the Junior Sedans.
