Dual WA Formula 500 champion Glenn Carstairs had an impressive display at the Kwinana Motorplex, claiming the King of Wings title on November 19.

Carstairs, who hails from Wandering, drove superbly on his way to victory in the 15-lap King of Kwinana feature race.

It was the third time Carstairs has won the race and was a welcomed return to the winners circle in his No.49 machine.

Carstairs started the final on the front row alongside Steven Ellement and it didn’t take Carstairs long to hit the front.

After five laps Carstairs led the field by just under a second and that margin was extended after 10 laps.

He was too strong in the concluding stages, coasting to a 13th win at the Motorplex as he crossed the line 0.874 seconds ahead of Ellement.

Rhys Cumming finished third while Luke Nardini and Jamie Nardini rounded out the top five in the feature race.

Carstairs, who finished second in the two qualifying heats, also had the fastest lap of the feature with a 16.734sec. circuit.
