An eighth-place finish in Bunbury did little to hurt the title odds for Geraldton local Callum Williamson, who currently sits second overall on the Speedweek ladder with one round left.

Williamson made his racing return in December at WA Speedweek, facing some tough competition from the USA.

During the round five race in Bunbury, Williamson won his qualifying group and came out in a starting position of seven, but ended with an eighth-place finish in the main race, his lowest placing in Speedweek.

Williamson had a second place finish in round one and a third place finish in round two before winning the round four sprint at Perth.

With just one round left, Williamson sits in second place with 716 points from the first five rounds, just behind the first-placed American Rico Abreu, who has 724.
