Veney and his team had a mad thrash in the pits, and were late getting up to the line. They got to the line just in time, then did a shorter version of their regular burnout.

Pomponio is 0-1 in final rounds, Veney is 0-4, so both drivers are looking for their first win in TAFC.

Veney got over near the centerline, steered away, then lifted as Pomponio thundered the rest of the way.
