Holden and Cain returned to second place on the next lap but the Birchalls were by then well out in front. By the end of the second lap, the Birchalls were 20.2 seconds ahead. Holden and Cain were comfortably ensconced in second, a whole minute and 45 seconds ahead of Lewis Blackstone and Patrick Rosney.
With first and second out of reach, the battle for the final podium spot continued on the final lap. Conrad Harrison and Andrew Winkle overcame a 10.3 second deficit on the last lap to pass Blackstock and Rosney for third.
