Bullsbrook’s Izak Davies has scored the biggest win of his Junior Sedan Career to date, winning last night’s Round 1 of the JSRA Metropolitan Junior Sedan Series for Top Star Junior Sedans at the Perth Motorplex.
With a field of 8 Top Star Junior Sedans set to battle at the Perth Motorplex for the first time this season, nerves were high amongst the competitors, however Izak Davies would settle the nerves, winning all three of the heat races throughout the night. The battle for positions behind him, was as always, top quality with the remaining 7 competitors duelling throughout the three heat races.
When it came to the final, Kalgoorlie’s Jacob Potts would make a great jump and would lead for the early proceedings, before Izak Davies began to apply immense pressure. Davies soon started to make his move on the inside of Potts who wouldn’t be denied with the duo racing side by side for a number of laps. Geraldton’s Ashley Baker sat in third and began to close the gap between himself and the leaders.
As the race came into it’s concluding stages, Jacob Potts had cleared out in the lead before running wide in sight of the white flag. Davies would cease the opportunity and from here, would run away to go through the night undefeated, earning him valuable points to start the season. Jacob Potts would hold on from Ashley Baker for second, while Jackson Derrick fought through the field for fourth.
In the New Stars, Bryden Southwell proved too strong throughout the entire night, defeating Jade McKeagg in each of the heat races and in the final.
Top Star Junior Sedan Final: 1. W95 Izak Davies, 2. W81 Jacob Potts, 3. W10 Ashley Baker, 4. W27 Jackson Derrick, 5. W108 Blake Webb, 6. W29 Mitchell Bosveld, 7. W13 Blake Fletcher DNS: W11 Jake Avins
