Dunlop Super Dealer V8 Ute star Stephen White has shrugged of a difficult practice to take second in Saturday’s V8 Ute race as the curtain raiser to the Bathurst Top Ten shootout.1374537_10151988079104714_1913633049_n

After struggling down the order in position nineteen during practice, the Dunlop Super Dealer team performed some last minute tweaks to allow White a fighting chance on one of the toughest tracks on the Australian V8 Ute Racing calendar. Lucky for Stephen, the changes worked; propelling him to secon place at the end of combined practice behins pole-sitter David Sieders and directly in front of Nathan Pretty and Ryan Hansford.

A fantastic start from White saw him take over the lead heading into Hell corner and headed the field through Reid Park and over the top of the mountain. For the next few laps Sieders through everything at White, but the Victorian held firm under increasing pressure.

On the drag out of Forest Elbow on lap four, Sieders managed to get a tow behind White’s Holden and the pair were side-by-side for the third time down Conrod Straight.

Holding the most valuable real-estate, it wwas Sieders who gained the advantage through the high-load Chase, re-taking the lead from White and was never headed.

White went on to finish second and fourth in race two; which set him up for a reverse-grid pole for Sunday’s feature race.

Race three of the Australian V8 Utes takes place tomorrow. Check local guides for broadcast times.
