New Stars Marvellous in Manji

13988251_1081826608570498_4826323605500784604_oJhy Pack has last night claimed Round 7 of the JSRA Country Super Series at Southern Forest Machinery Raceway in Manjimup in what was another sensational night of Junior Sedan action.

A quality field of eleven New Star competitors, Luke Malcolm made a great start, defeating Matthew Thomson and Bryden Southwell comfortably on a slippery track. Jhy Pack and Matthew Thomson would then share the victories in the remaining two heats, which promised an exciting 15 lap feature race.

With Luke Malcolm and Jhy Pack off the front row, all was set for a thrilling 15 lap feature race, though this would come to an abrupt end for Luke Malcolm who suffered mechanical dramas before reaching the first corner.

Jhy Pack would inherit the race lead and from sister Montana and Matthew Thomson. Thomson would soon make a pass for second position and started to apply immense pressure to the race leader. Bryden Southwell now started to buy his way into the battle for minor placings, charging up behind Montana Pack in third. Further back in the field, Albany lady racers Bianca Kennedy and Hope Batchelor would fight hard for the minor places.

As the laps continued to wind down, Matthew Thomson continued to torment Jhy Pack who continued at the front of the field, with Montana Pack now making a move on Thomson. Bryden Southwell continued to watch in fourth position as the leading trio battled it out.

With heavy traffic now approaching, the leaders started to approach and the race for the lead was well and truly on in earnest. As the white flag flew, Matthew Thomson and Montana Pack were extremely close to the leader, which would soon come to a halt with Ellie Sing spinning and bringing on the yellow lights.

A green, white, checkered re-start would follow, which saw Jhy Pack make a great start ahead of sister Montana, Thomson and Bryden Southwell who was now within striking distance. The white flag flew once again with Montana Pack closing in on younger brother Jhy Pack, but it was all too late as Jhy Pack crossed the line to record his second round victory in a row ahead of Montana Pack and a fast finishing Bryden Southwell. Matthew Thomson would finish a gallant fourth place in what was a great race from the New Star Junior Sedans.
