Metro Series Continues this Weekend

jsra-logo-transThe JSRA Metropolitan Series continues this weekend, with Round Four of the series set to take place at Avon Valley Speedway in Northam, just an hour from the Perth Metro area.

With the venue under new management for the remainder of this season, the JSRA in conjunction with the new management are looking forward to see some top quality Junior Sedan action on the tight bullring of Avon Valley.

As always, the JSRA will field two divisions; New Stars and Top Stars, who will all be looking forward to racing at a new track.

Jade McKeagg will be the driver to watch on Saturday evening, as she looks to redeem herself after mechanical dramas left her out of the second half of racing at Moora last weekend. Brock Lake impressed many in Moora last weekend and will look to gain more experience, as will Joshua Wardley and Olivia Earle, two newer drivers in the division. Geraldton’s Emma Ahearn is the other driver, who will be making the trip down to Northam this weekend.

In the Top Star field, a number of drivers who competed at Moora Speedway last weekend will look to figure prominently, headlined by the winner Darryl George and ultra consistent Blake Webb. Both drivers will have tough competition from Kurtis Blackburn, Bryden Southwell and Izak Davies, who figured prominently last weekend.

Jasmine Arnold and Rohan Thomas also impressed at Moora and will look to continue on their quest for victory at Avon Valley this weekend. Alex Swift, Jhy Pack and Joshua Ahearn will also be in the field and will look to knock off their competition to claim Round 4 of the Metro Series.

Action at Avon Valley Speedway will get underway from 6.30pm this Saturday night, with Junior Competitors racing in three heat races and a final each.

Dellar and George Claim Series Opener

13988251_1081826608570498_4826323605500784604_oChloe Dellar and Darryl George have claimed Round One of the JSRA Country Super Series for their respective divisions at Moora Speedway last night.

Dellar dominated proceedings in the New Star division, going through the event undefeated, while her fellow drivers jostled for the minors places. Jade McKeagg started the night well, before mechanical dramas ended her night. Brock Lake, Matilda Hull and Deagan McNally; all in their first season of speedway racing, raced hard all night, though could not match the pace of Dellar.

With a quality field of Top Star drivers entered, the night promised some great racing and lived up to it’s expectation, with drivers racing two and three wide. Geraldton’s Ahryn Curtin began the night in the best possible fashion, winning the opening heat, while Darryl George would also claim his first heat win.

Bunbury’s Brandon Buszan would defeat a very quick Kurtis Blackburn to win the third heat of the night, before Beau Oldfield fought off his fellow racers, who through everything at him to win heat four.

The final round of heats, would see the night’s fifth different heat winner, demonstrating how even WA Junior Sedan racing can be, as Blake Webb defeated Rohan Thomas and sister, Tanika Webb. Darryl George would become the first multiple heat race winner, as he crossed the line to win the final heat of the night.

The twenty-lap feature would see Darryl George and Kurtis Blackburn start from the front row. George would hit the front from the outset and would endure a number of yellow light stoppages. Rory Elsum-Beaumont was the first retirement with a flat front right tyre, as Blake Webb started to look quick behind Kurtis Blackburn.

Further back in the field, Lachlan Dellar who suffered damage earlier in the night would begin his charge through the field, as younger brother Kayne would retire from the event.

The battle in front started to heat up, as Kurtis Blackburn and Blake Webb closed in on race leader, Darryl George. Blackburn would soon fall back through the field, as Beau Oldfield, Bryden Southwell and Brody Day battled for the minor positions.

With laps winding down, Darryl George would do enough to defeat Blake Webb and Brody Day to claim Round One of the JSRA Country Super Series.

Attention for the JSRA will now turn to Round Four of the JSRA Metropolitan Series, which heads to Avon Valley Speedway next weekend. The next JSRA Country Super Series will be the weekend after, at Geraldton City Speedway on Saturday December 8th.

Junior Series Begins this Weekend

jsra-logo-transThe 2018/2019 JSRA Country Super Series will fire into action at Moora Speedway on Saturday night for the first time of the season.

With three rounds of the JSRA Metropolitan Series already taking place at Ellenbrook, Bunbury and the Perth Motorplex; the Junior Sedan racing has already proven to be of the highest quality.

With the first country event of the season attracting a healthy 25 nominations, it promises to be an awesome night of Junior Sedan action.

Goldfield’s racer Chloe Dellar will headline a small field of New Star Junior Sedan competitors, with newcomers Brock Lake, Deagan McNally, Matilda Hull and Luke Martin also in the field. Jade McKeagg is a late nomination for the event and will look to put a challenge up to her fellow racers.

In the Top Star ranks, a range of drivers could find themselves on the top step of the podium come the end of the twenty-lap feature race on Saturday night. Blake Webb and Darryl George will be the early favourites, having each finished on the podium a number of times already this summer season.

Kurtis Blackburn, on board the ex-Jackson Derrick Hyundai Excel has taken like a duck to water to his new car. Blackburn has already found himself at the pointy end of the field at the Perth Motorplex a few weeks ago, before mechanical dramas forced his retirement.

Also in the field, is the ever-travelling Dellar duo, of brothers Lachlan and Kayne Dellar, along with a whole swag of mid-west racers including Mitchell Baker, Rohan Thomas, Ahryn Curtin and Rory Elsum-Beaumont. Home town hero Taj Vanzetti will be the only local hope in the field and will no doubt have the support of the crowd this weekend.

JSRA Series’ regulars Brody Day, Jasmine Arnold, Bryden Southwell and Izak Davies will also look to put up a challenge to their rivals, as will Bunbury racer Brandon Buszan.

Be sure you don’t miss any of the action and get yourself to Moora Speedway this Saturday night, with racing getting underway from 6pm.
