Once the meeting proper started, the drivers came across an in-form Moodie (Windygates) who went on to dominate the race and, after winning both of the heats, made a quick start when the final began .

By the half distance, he was sitting in fourth place and then through into second, running on the back bumper of the leader.

With only a handful of laps remaining, he dived to the inside of the leader, Euan Millar, to take over at the front of the pack before going through to make it a hat-trick of wins.
