The ultimate battle will unfold between Colin Osborne and Tyler Everingham in the Australian Production Car Series this weekend. 

Racing within the same stable at Osborne Motorsport, the two racers will be gunning for the class C title, where 16-year-old Everingham leads his boss by just 28 points.

Osborne praised the young driver and said there will be no team orders heading into the finale.

“Tyler is not only very talented in terms of driving talent, but he also has the right attitude to things,” Osborne said. 

“No racing driver ever races to come second, in my opinion if you start thinking about that then it is time for you to give it up! Having said that, I will be very pleased irrespective of how things pan out as far as myself winning the title. 

“Both cars will be running to try and win and with all things being equal either car is in with a great chance… there will be no team orders.”

Throughout 2017 Everingham also competed in the CAMS Jayco Australian Formula 4 Championship and says he’s relishing at this weekend’s challenge. 

“It has been a great experience and has helped speed up my progression this year, with competing in the Osborne Motorsport Renault Megane alongside the Formula 4,” Everingham said. 

“It is always nerve-wracking going into the final round that will be the title decider, let alone battling against your team boss.”

The Australian Production Car Series will be on track for their first 300-kilometre race this afternoon, as part of the final Shannons Nationals round at Wakefield Park.
