A solid weekend for Dave Stevens in his first weekend with Wall Racing in the Australian GT Trophy class finishing 5th overall for the round, after finishing 4th in Race 1 and 5th in Race 2.

“Our 2nd meeting with Dave in the Ferrari 458 GT3 and our first in GT Trophy for 2018, last weekend we ran at Wakefield Park and he did a really good job.  We came into the Phillip Island round with a good idea of what we would need.  Considering the other cars that he was up against including some more recent cars, we were really happy with how he went.  We leave with a straight car and look forward to the next round.” David Wall, Team Owner.
