New Zealander Jaxon Evans leaves Adelaide with a comfortable point's lead after the opening stanza of the 2018 Porsche Carrera Cup championship.

The Kiwi notched up his second win of the weekend Sunday morning to go with the second place he had filed away from Friday's race one.

Evans launched from pole like a scalded cat and shut out fellow front row sitter David Wall and was never really challenged for the rest of the race.

"It was good to grab another race win today and it turned out to be a near perfect weekend for us," said a happy Evans.

"The track is not my favourite as it's quite different to a number of tracks we race on during the year. It's very bumpy with big kerbs and rewards you for a lot of commitment."

"I hope we can carry the momentum we've had here for the rest of the year.

The safety car paid a visit after first Leanne Tander found the wall on the inside of Turn Eight and then Marc Cini ground to a halt on the inside of the last corner.

Not one to be phased, Evans was ready to go when the lights went green again and swiftly pulled a one-second lead over the chasing pack and was never headed until the chequered flag.

"It's never easy and we managed to get a good start again to redeem myself after race one and managed to lead the field into Turn One.

"The safety car shortened the race a bit but I was able to stay ahead and finish the race with a win. It was good to come out swinging at the first race of the season and grab the results we did.

"It's great for McElrea Racing and my engineer Lee and I can't thank them enough for making me look good.

Evans is now preparing for round two of the championship at the Australian Formula One Grand Prix in Melbourne, March 21-24.
