DARREN Kane took out two out of three National Super Sedan Series races over the weekend, consolidating his hold on the competition lead.

The Ipswich driver for Boettcher Racing Team drove his Mazda RX8 to victories at the Murray Bridge Speedway in South Australia and at the Western Speedway in Victoria.

However, the weekend started in less ideal conditions for Kane at the Timmis Speedway in Victoria when he spun out on the feature race's opening lap before finishing 12th.

The following night, at Murray Bridge, Kane fought off a challenge by West Australian driver Kodee Brown to claim his first win of the weekend.

Returning to Victoria on Sunday, Kane dominated the race at the Western Speedway.

After qualifying in pole position Kane paced the field for the race's entire 35 laps.

After eight rounds of the National Series Kane has recorded a total of three round wins as well as finishing on the podium at a total of five rounds, giving him a 290-point lead in the standings.

The Ipswich driver is a two-time National Series champion.

The series will take this coming weekend off before Kane travels to his former home state of Tasmania to contest the remaining two rounds.

The penultimate round will be held at Carrick Speedway outside of Launceston on the night of Friday, January 25 before the final round at Hobart's Mountain Dew Ice Raceway is held over Saturday and Sunday nights.

Kane is leading fellow Ipswich driver Matt Pascoe in the Series point lead, with Brown almost 500 competition points behind the pair.

Kane took the series lead in Dubbo after a run of high, but not podium, finishes in New South Wales.
