SS3 Round 5 Race 2: Henebury wins to take drivers title lead at Monza

Mark Henebury (#12 Heyneke Racing Team) took victory of race 2 of the 2015.1 SAsim SS3 Series round at Monza.

After a trying start, Henebury emerged from the opening corner in fifth position behind teammate Chris Heyneke. Team orders soon saw Henebury passed Heyneke and after Jason Holden-Jones (#37 H-J Motorsport).

Proceedings would further favour Henebury as both  Rossouw and Absmeier conducted drive through penalties for avoidable incidents. Henebury suddenly found himself in a battle for victory with Holden-Jones.

With three laps remaining Henebury used a better drive out of Parabolica to run alongside Holden-Jones down the long main straight and to finally  pass him around the outside line into the first chicane.

Henebury was left unchallenged to secure his third win of the season. Holden-Jones finished in second ahead of Rossouw.

In the drivers championship standings, Henebury now leads  by 11 points from Jadwat. Heyneke Racing Team are set to secure the Team Championship at the Nürburgring.
