Teenage sensation Jock Goodyer has added an Australian Formula 500 Championship to his impressive list of achievements.
The event was held in hot conditions at Victoria's Simpson Speedway with more than 60 entrants vying for a starting position in the 20-car A-main 30-lap final and Goodyer qualifying on pole.
The 18-year-old apprentice electrician from Launceston came close to winning the title two seasons ago with a runner-up position before focusing his career on sprintcars.
"This drive was more for fun and to put the past behind [me]", Goodyer stated on social media before the event.
Four Tasmanians contested the event with Adam Burr and Adam Garwood striking problems resulting in them being unable to progress from the C-main final.
Dylan Beveridge started from ninth but an early altercation ended his night with a flat tyre.
Goodyer controlled the race from the restart and despite several concerted challenges from multiple champion Liam Williams he remained calm and controlled to take a sensational victory.
Goodyer becomes the fourth Tasmanian to win the title in half a century.
He returns his focus to the sprintcar and will contest the Australian championship at Latrobe at the end of January.
Winning the Tasmanian championship at that track last season will help in his quest to add a second national title.
