Australasian Junior Champs This Weekend

jsra-logo-transThis weekend, the Central Midlands Speedway Association’s Moora Speedway will come alive with the 2018 Australasian Junior Sedan Championship, a precursor to the upcoming WA Junior Sedan Title at the same venue.

The international event has attracted a fine field of Junior Sedan drivers from all of WA, plus six of the best Ministock racers from different parts of New Zealand.

Headlining the nomination list this weekend are a number of drivers that have been towards the pointy end of Junior Sedan fields this season. Luke Malcolm, was super quick in Esperance last weekend and will be hoping for some luck to come his way in Moora this weekend. Luke’s close mates Blake Webb and Jackson Derrick have also experienced success this season and will no doubt be looking for some valuable track time at the Moora venue this weekend.

Midwest racer Bradley Short will also be an early favourite, as will Kalgoorlie’s Dylan Parkes. Although Parkes didn’t have the best of runs in Esperance last weekend, he will be sure to bounce back this weekend. Two drivers that you can never discount, are Broome racers Zac Minshull and Jorj Park. Both are extremely quick racers, that work their way to the front of the field this weekend.

This weekend, a number of drivers that you’d normally see in the New Star division, will race against the states best in this “all in” event. The leading driver would have to be Ellenbrook’s Beau Oldfield. With the racing gene well and truly infixed in this young racer, Oldfield has already achieved some major race victories and will be one to watch this weekend.

Leading the Kiwi charge will be Chris Kernohan. Chris won the all Kiwi race last weekend and will look to take it up to Australia’s best again this weekend, but will have Jayden Fraser and Ryan Marshall knocking on his heals. All three drivers were extremely quick in their first drives in Australian Junior Sedans last weekend, and will be be sure to watch.

Racing gets underway in Moora this Saturday night from 6pm, with nine qualifying heats ahead of the all important final. Make sure you don’t miss out on seeing Australia and New Zealand’s future stars of speedway, as they look to take victory in a rare International racing event.

If you cannot be at the event, the JSRA Facebook page has you covered, with full race results being uploaded to Facebook after each event.
