For the first time this season the Junior Sedans will head to the high banks of the Perth Motorplex as part of the Metro Series, with nine nominations received.
The opening round of the series was held just over a fortnight ago at Ellenbrook Speedway with Blake Iwanow taking out the first feature win of the JSRA season and he will be keen to continue that form. Iwanow already has two career wins at the Motorplex venue, both in the last season and now, fresh off not just his feature win at Ellenbrook plus another last weekend at Bunbury in a non-series race) but also after being crowned the Junior Sedan Track Championship at Ellenbrook Speedway, as well as the overall club champion, he will be a tough nut to crack.
Kayne Dellar came home second at Ellenbrook and was fifteenth overall at the Perth Motorplex last season. He has nominated for this weekend and will be keen to take it to Iwanow, but will see a serious challenge from Izak Davies who was second in the Perth Motorplex Track Championship last season with two podium results. He has previously grabbed one feature win at the venue and came home eighth in the opening round of this years Series and will now be keen to bounce back with an even better result this Saturday night.
Bryden Southwell was third overall last year at the Perth Motorplex with two podium finishes, but has yet to break through for that elusive feature win. He was fourth in the opening feature at Ellenbrook a couple of weeks ago and will be keen to better that result while Chloe Dellar is also in the field having come home fifth in the opening round feature. She too has competed at the Motorplex previously, 25th overall in last years series while Jasmine Arnold, who was an unfortunate DNF in the opening round, was twelfth overall last year at the Motorplex with a twelfth and a DNF in the two rounds she contested. All three of these drivers are in the field and will be keen for big results this Saturday night.
Some of the newer drivers in the field are also capable of turning heads. Olivia Earle was fifth overall in her first year at the Perth Motorplex and has had a solid off season, while Brock Lake is also back this Saturday night having run just one show here at the venue last season. Even newer than these two drivers though is Locky Comley who will be competing in just his third ever meeting, simply excited to be racing where his idols raced!
It will be another great show for the division and the Junior Sedans will get three six lap heats prior to their ten lap feature, with the first race scheduled to be held at 5.30pm, so make sure you are at the track early!
