The final round was held at Tasmania's Symons Plains race circuit, in conjunction with the V8 Supercar Championship, with a large crowd witnessing all of the action across a weekend of inclement and changeable weather.

Casella took second place in Race 1, a slender .135 seconds behind Herfoss. Also Daytona 675 mounted was Queenslander Des Darby who finished in 8th place. Fastest Lap in race 1 was 56.176 by Christan.

Race 2 saw a repeat of race 1, with Casella once again in second place and Des Darby in 8th position. Fastest lap in race 2 was by Des Darby who pulled off an amazing 1:01.723 on a wet track.

"We are really pleased with our results in what we were viewing as a learning year for us with the 675 Daytona," Casella said.

"We were confident that we would be competitive, as the 675 is known for being quick straight out of the box, but didn't think for a minute that we would end up with 2nd place overall, let alone take out the Privateers Cup! I'd like to thank Andy Offer for giving me the opportunity to race the Triumph, and Peter Stevens Motorcycles and Triumph Australia for their support. We'll be back next year to give it another good crack."
