AARON Seton rounded out his debut season in the Dunlop Super2 Series with a career-best finish in Race 2 at Mount Panorama.

Seton finished third in Saturday afternoon’s Race 2, improving on his previous best of fifth in the opening race at Sydney Motorsport Park and securing ninth place in the 2021 points standings.

“It is pretty special to be up here and to get third today and sixth yesterday,” Seton said.

“It was a solid weekend overall and I can’t thank my team enough and everyone that has supported me for this year. It is a pretty special feeling.”

Seton also confirmed after the race that he will drive for Matt Stone Racing again in Super2 next year, and said that he is aiming to improve his results next season.

“I will be in the same car next year with Matt Stone Racing,” he said.

“You see a lot of guys, their second year is always their strongest so I will be working hard to make sure that that is the case and will try to be up here on the podium more often.”

Broc Feeney wrapped up the Super2 title on Saturday with his eighth podium race finish of the year, also scoring round honours at Bathurst.

He will compete in Sunday’s Bathurst 1000 alongside Russell Ingall in a Triple Eight wildcard before replacing the retiring Jamie Whincup in Supercars at Triple Eight next year.

Feeney’s Super2 Series win was also made easier by the fact that Jayden Ojeda, his lone mathematical threat for the title, was taken out of contention at turn one, lap one after contact with Matt White Motorsport teammate Tyler Everingham.

Both cars were out of Race 3 after the incident and ended a tough round for the MWM team after a stray wheelnut resulted in Declan Fraser crashing out of the weekend on Wednesday.

Due to Ojeda’s DNF, Tickford’s Zak Best recovered back to second position in the series.
