FIFTEEN-year-old V8 whizz kid Alex Rullo has claimed his second consecutive round victory in the Kumho Tyre Australian V8 Touring Car Series with a clean sweep performance this weekend in Queensland.

The Perth schoolboy was dominant all weekend, comfortably taking his first Kumho Series pole position on Saturday by seven-tenths of a second before clinching victory in Race 1.

Today he carried on the form, winning Race 2 after a dice with Liam McAdam and then winning the longer final race, however it was not without drama.

The two teenagers diced hard in the opening lap, contact at turn two sending McAdam off the road into the sand trap.
