Round 7 of the JSRA Country Super Series held at Southern Forest Machinery Raceway in Manjimup last night, has seen Stefani Ameduri claim victory in what was highly competitive night of Junior Sedan racing.
An extremely high quality list of entrants, with some of the best drivers in the nation had entered for the event and as we have come to expect from previous rounds of the JSRA Country Super Series, the heat racing was wide open. This was then proven in the heat races with five different heat victors including Blake Webb, Jackson Derrick, Peter Katona, Rahni Musarra and Jorj Park who would win on two occasions.
This would see Jorj Park start on the front row alongside Jake Avins for the 20 lap feature race with Stefani Ameduri and Jackson Derrick from row two. The race for the lead would see five cars fighting it out including Jorj Park, Jake Avins, Stefani Ameduri, Izzac Delaporte and Jackson Derrick. As the leading group started to move away from the rest of the field, Blake Fletcher held his own in sixth position ahead of Seth Hinsey, as Blake Webb now started to charge through the field after rolling earlier in the night.
Stefani Ameduri was now the leader and led by a comfortable distance from Jake Avins, Jorj Park, Izzac Delaporte and Jackson Derrick who continued to circulate in close proximity before the yellow lights would come home with Rahni Musarra and Daniel Erceg stopped in turn 2. This would end the race for Musarra, who suffered damage in the incident.
With thirteen laps remaining, Jake Avins would make a ripping re-start behind Stefani Ameduri who led the field into turns 1 and 2. Izzac Delaporte now started to make a charge through the field and battled hard with Jorj Park who both ran wide allowing Jackson Derrick through for third.
The laps continued to count down, as Stefani Ameduri once again stretched her lead out from Avins and Derrick. Derrick would soon run wide, as Izzac Delaporte moved into third position. The race for the minor places wasn’t over from here, as Jake Avins, Izzac Delaporte and Jackson Derrick continued to dice for second, third and fourth position.
With the white flag now on display, the battle for the last podium positions was not over from here, as Avins, Delaporte and Derrick continued to race extremely hard. Stefani Ameduri would prove to be too strong as she crossed the line to take the victory in Round 7 of the JSRA Country Super Series ahead of Izzac Delaporte, who narrowing defeated Jake Avins and Jackson Derrick.
The rest of the field fought hard for positions, with Blake Fletcher driving a solid race to finish fifth ahead of Blake Webb, Seth Hinsey, Jorj Park, Brooke Watson, Daniel Erceg, Jaymee Park, Corey Ameduri and Tanika Webb.
