She credits partner and fellow participant Jonah Hutchinson for her driving surge this year, declaring that he had been a close mentor when it comes to improving her driving skill set.
“I am really happy with how it’s all been going, it is definitely my best season yet,” Bevan said.
“I am getting more drives from trainers and getting a lot more opportunities, which is good. The more you drive in races the better.
“I think the important thing is constantly driving and not just getting one or two, because that does not really help, you need to be having a few in a row to be helping and learning.
“Jonah has been a big help to go back through the races where I have driven and given me advice.”
Hutchinson also was in the winner’s circle on Wednesday evening at the Peninsula-based track.
Like Bevan, the 24-year-old Hutchinson is also enjoying his best season yet, driving in 51 victories so far.
He has 48 winners to his name as a trainer, as well.
The Bevan and Hutchinson partnership have been working together for the last few seasons with Paige noting they have slowly developed a better standard of horse in their stable.
From an inside draw, Bevan was able to lead with short-priced favourite Shadys Cullect on Wednesday and hold the front throughout before scoring by eight metres.
The win handed Bevan 15 points to open the series.
“I was really happy with the run and I thought if we could lead, we would have a really good chance,” the young reinswoman said.
“Whenever Trent is able to lead with her, she goes really good and usually finishes top three.
“At the 400 metre mark on Wednesday night, I thought I had the race as she felt so good. When I pulled the plugs she just took off and felt awesome.
“Trent has given me drives before and used my claim, mainly at Albion.”
Bevan drove Devouged for veteran horseman Doug Lee in the second heat and finished in fifth position.
The 21-year-old Rothwell scored in the second heat to rise up the leader board.
Zac Chappenden won the annual BOTRA Queensland Young Drivers Championship last year.
Bevan was involved in the series in 2022 but finished near the bottom of the leader board for points.
