Under clear skies and perfect racing conditions, Shane and Curt Elphinstone have dominated the Inland Mechanical & Westside Insurance Three Springs 360.

After claiming the lead on day 1, the #44 team overcame an early attack from Jared Percival who briefly held the lead of the race. However the Elphinstone Racing duo would not be denied and charged back to 1st on road and continued in the same manner to win by just under 18 minutes. In second place and first in Prolite was Jared Percival who drove a very composed race to beat out Mal Yeardley who put in a determined drive to take third outright.

There was late drama in the battle for fourth with Dean Terry rolling out of the SXS Turbo class lead and a potential fourth outright, moving Colin Doney up into fourth and first Extreme 2WD. Chris Unstead rounded out the top five with a SXS Turbo class victory.

Aaron Dark set the timesheets alight, scorching his ways to first in Super 1650 and eighth outright whilst Nicholas Van Geest led the way in Extreme 4WD in ninth. Ben Armstrong rounded out the top ten outright with an impressive run in the Bottlefed Racing Nissan Patrol.

Deon Visagie was the Sportslite victor in 14th outright whilst Fluffy and Sean brought the WA Off Road Junior Development Program Kinga home for a popular Performance 2WD win.

All eyes turn to Kalgoorlie now with the sixth and final round of the 2018 CAMS Carnarvon Motel WAORC sure to be actioned pack as the title fight goes down to the wire.
