The JSRA Country Super Series headed to the Make Smoking History Collie Speedway last night for Round 4, which was proudly supported by Kay Chlo La’s Cleaning. Goldfields racer Kayne Dellar and Collie’s very own Seth Hinsey were victorious in the New Star and Top Star feature races on a night, which action packed.
Close to thirty Junior drivers from all over the state converged on the Make Smoking History Collie Speedway to score some valuable series points, as we move into the second half of the 2017/2018 season.
Bunbury’s Brandon Buszan started the night off recording a comfortable victory in heat one of the New Star Junior Sedans, while Jhy Pack was able to follow suit, winning the second heat. Mitchell Delaporte and Kayne Dellar would then become the third and fourth different heat winners, before Jhy Pack and Brandon Buszan would win their second heats of the night.
When it came to the A Main for the New Star Juniors, there were a number of drivers in with a chance of claiming the 15 lap race. The initial start would be short lived, as a number of drivers would find themselves facing the wrong way after some water was added to the track.
At the restart, Brandon Buszan who started on pole position at the first start would be sent to the rear for causing the stoppage. Matthew Thomson would make the best of the jump and would lead the field for the first part of the race. Kayne Dellar would fight hard with Jhy and Montana Pack, as Buszan started to charge back through the field.
Soon, Kayne Dellar would make a pass for the lead, moving past Matthew Thomson. Brandon Buszan would find himself in the top three before too long and would soon also pass Thomson for second. With the laps winding down, it look as if it would be a close finish, which it was indeed. Coming to the chequered flag, Kayne Dellar would hold on by the smallest of margins to defeat Brandon Buszan and Matthew Thomson.
A stellar field of Top Star Junior drivers were on hand for the fourth round of the series, where Esperance’s Blake Fletcher and home town hero, Seth Hinsey would win the first heats of the night. Good friends, Jackson Derrick and Blake Webb would then share a win each in heat three and four, before Blake Iwanow would drive a brilliant race to win the fifth heat of the night after starting from the rear of field all night. Blake Webb would be the only driver to record two separate heat race wins, claiming heat six.
Jackson Derrick and Blake Webb would start the 20 lap feature race from the front row, but it was Blake Iwanow and Jorj Park who would make the best of the start. As the field started to cross the start-finish line for the first time, their would be trouble as Blake Iwanow would find himself clobbering the main straight wall, ending his night.
A complete restart was ordered, where Jorj Park was ordered to the rear of the field. Blake Webb would lead the first into the first corner, where he would start to open up a sizeable lead ahead of Jackson Derrick and Seth Hinsey. Dylan Parkes would start to move through the field and started to make a challenge for third. Further back in the field, Blake Fletcher and Zac Minshull were having a great battle swapping positions on a number of occasions.
After a couple of restarts, Seth Hinsey managed to get past Jackson Derrick for second, as Dylan Parkes tried to make a pass for third. The battle for second was well and truly on in earnest, as Derrick continued to pressure Hinsey, waiting for one mistake. As Blake Webb continued to lead, he was soon caught by Seth Hinsey and Jackson Derrick. Hinsey applied immense pressure and was able to make a pass for the lead.
A four lap restart was ordered after a car spun in turns 1 and 2. When the green lights came back on, this would signal the end of Jackson Derrick’s race, who suffered a flat front right tyre while sitting in third position. Seth Hinsey would go on to record a popular victory in front of his home crowd, defeating Blake Webb and Dylan Parkes.
The JSRA must thank the Make Smoking History Collie Speedway for once again hosting a round of the JSRA Country Super Series, as well as the Dellar Family from Kay Chlo La’s Cleaning for their support of this round.
Attention for the JSRA will now turn to the March long weekend, which will see the Team Australia vs Team New Zealand Challenge, with six of the best Ministock racers coming to Australia soil to take on our very best. This will also see Round 5 of the JSRA Country Super Series, where all drivers will be looking to earn more valuable points.
