McBain goes to the ANDRA championship season grand final at Adelaide at the weekend vying for the top sportsmans series sharing the lead.

He is on the maximum points cap with Jason Stares (New South Wales), Paul Russo (South Australia) andDarren Saliba (SA)

Jason Arbery (SA) is within striking distance to also be in contention.

McBain just missed out by 20 points on winning the first title in top sportsman history last yearwhen he was notable to compete at the final event.

He has been a runner-up three times this season and iswithout a mark in the win column.

However, if he can go one better at the weekend it will get the monkey off his back and secure the championship he agonisingly missed out on last year.

“We are very excited to be part of this battle for the top sportsman championship title,” he said.

“Last season it also went down to the wire and we just missed out.

“There are some tough racers in with a shot but we are confident we can put down some great runs at Adelaide as the track is generally very sticky and the weather will be awesome this time of year which will help us put down some fast consistent runs.

“Obviously our goal is to cut great lights and put ourselves in a position to control the races. We know the car is fast and consistent; it’s really going to come down to me as a driver to get the job done. I am looking forward to the challenge.”
