The winners at the 2009 Final Shootout were Adam Hughes (Light) and Brendan Nelson (Heavy)

Hughes was presented with a fully sponsored overseas drive and Nelson won a complete Monaco Kart & Leopard engine package.

Adam Willison won the 'random draw' prize of the Toyota Yaris Motorcar! This is the 9th CAR that Remo Racing has put up as a prizes since the Leopard Final Shootout's inception in 2005.

Lots of other prizes were given away at the Leopard Final Shootout presentations. Over the years, Remo Racing has given away the value of almost $400,000.00 at the one-day Leopard Final Shootout events.

ADAM WILLISON WINS THE YARIS!

The Leopard Grand Final Shootout was littered with big prizes in both classes. Melbourne's Adam Willison won the "LUCKY DRAW" for the Toyota Yaris!

All Leopard competitors who competed a minimum of 3 Leopard class races anywhere in Australia were invited to the Leopard final and those who entered went into a 'random draw' for a chance to win the car.

Marcus Luciani (son of Remo) drew out Adam's name. When Adam was presented the keys, his reaction was so touching, he really could not believe that he had won a car! He was absolutely lost for words.

Adam Hughes might have lost the F100 title, but nothing was going to stop him winning Leopard Light. James Sera challenged the Kosmic driver in the opening laps but couldn't hold the pace, Adam Hughes marching out a race winning gap as Sera and Tyler Greenbury battled for second - which went the way of the Queenslander.

Leopard Heavy Report mylaps results here
Brendan Nelson saved his best result for the final to take a clear win in Leopard Heavy - and winning a complete Monaco/X30 package for his efforts. Nelson was fast in the preliminary races, but wasn't pulling the big results. It was Brad Fitch who won the pre-final, but a shocking start to the main race saw him slip well back. Thus it was Rick Pringle who led the opening laps, but it wasn't long before Nelson took over and pulled away.

Fitch worked his way back to third, but Simon Roberts eventually took the final podium position after a close battle. SA's Paul Pittam was fifth.
