Following a positive start to his season it was only a matter of time before Piper would bag his first trophy finish. The scenic Cadwell Park race circuit was to be the setting for the breakthrough Piper and the team had been hoping for and after a hard fought battle he finished the race in 3rd. Mark said, "It's a great achievement. The team and I will enjoy this victory. We are now even more driven to get on to the top step of the podium and will all be working even harder to ensure that the first win comes soon".
