AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIP LATEST
Yet again Jack Holder was left cursing countback as he was frozen out of the A Final by fellow Pirate Brady Kurtz.
Kurtz won their heat 7 encounter which proved critical as both riders finished on a matching 11 points. Whilst Kurtz claimed an A Final berth, Holder went into the B final where his elder brother Chris took the honours.
The night though belonged to Max Fricke, who for the second successive round dropped just a solitary point and now leads the Championship by 8 points, having won three of the four rounds staged.
Rohan Tungate finished second in the A Final and is now second overall on 58 points, one clear of Chris Holder who was third in the fourth round final.
Kurtz who was fourth, closed a point in on Jack Holder who is fourth in the standings on 43 points, two clear of fifth placed Brady.
