Brodie Kostecki and Jarrad Filsell have taken out a second Bathurst Eseries enduro in as many years.
Kostecki and Filsell combined to win the penultimate Cash Converters Supercars Eseries race on Wednesday.
It comes after the Erebus pairing won the Sandown enduro last month, adding to last year’s Bathurst win.
Filsell took over from Kostecki, who took the lead early in his stint.
Filsell defied a late charge from behind to clinch victory by 0.45s over the Aaron Borg/Madison Down entry.
Reuben Goodall and Andrew Gilliam finished third for Matt Stone Racing.
It was a disastrous race for Pro Series contenders Jake Burton and Dayne Warren.
Their respective co-drivers suffered internet connection issues, taking both entries out of contention.
Burton/Cooper Webster finished 10th, with Warren/Jayden Ojeda 19th and last.
Kostecki took the lead early on from the pole-sitting Goodall/Gilliam car.
Kostecki stopped from the lead on lap 13, with Filsell retaining track position once the BP Ultimate Safety Car was called on lap 15.
Filsell kept a straight nose after the restart and took victory by less than 0.5s.
The race was punctuated by a number of incidents, none more dramatic than a first-lap roll for the Jordy Sinni/Jordan Caruso car.
The Monster Mustang was sent airborne exiting The Chase, only to recover to an impressive seventh.
The Cash Converters Supercars Eseries will conclude at Oran Park next Wednesday.
