The Top Star Junior Sedans have once again delivered some of the best quality speedway racing at the Quit Collie Speedway last night for Round 6 of the JSRA Country Super Series supported by Hamon Tyre and Exhaust Centre.
Jake Avins went into this event as an early favourite and started the evening in the best way, claiming the opening heat of the night. Izzac Delaporte, Jorj Park, Stefani Ameduri and Blake Webb would also find themselves at the front of the field in the subsequent heat races.
Izzac Delaporte would be the only driver that would prevail in two heat races, which would give him a pole position start for the 20-lap feature race.
As the green flag dropped on the 20-lap feature race, Broome’s Jorj Park would make the best of the start and would lead the field, as Jake Avins started to charge around a few cars, as did Blake Webb. Stefani Ameduri also started to make her mark on the race, apply immense pressure to Blake Webb.
Seth Hinsey was having a great run and in front of his home track started to make his effect on the race, as Izzac Delaporte started to line up a move on Jorj Park. As the duo went through turn 2, there would almost be a touch, before Izzac Delaporte would make contact with Jorj Park, which resulted in a yellow light.
At the stoppage Jorj Park would be sent to the rear of the field and would have a lot of work to do with 16 laps remaining. Izzac Delaporte would lead the field, as Peter Katona now started to move through the field.
The race continued at a high pace, with Jorj Park now charging his way through the field towards the front once again. Stefani Ameduri now sat in second position and had some work to do in order to catch our race leader.
With eight laps remaining, the yellow lights would be forced to come on, as Blake Fletcher lost a wheel, ending his race. When the green light came on again, Stefani Ameduri made a great start, as did Jorj Park who had now moved his way into position 4 after working his way through the field from the rear.
With Delaporte continuing to lead by about 1 second, Tylar Main would retire from the event with a flat tyre. Jake Avins, Jorj Park and Blake Webb fought hard for the minor positions, with Park and Avins getting hooked together across the start finish line. The yellow lights would have to come on once again, as Jorj Park lost his rear bumper from the car going into turn 1.
Jorj Park would be told to go to the infield for causing two stoppages, which was very disappointing for the Broome racer. With only a handful of laps remaining, Izzac Delaporte continued to lead the field from Stefani Ameduri, Blake Webb and Jake Avins. Avins now moved to the inside of Blake Webb and would take away third position, as Peter Katona now moved past Blake Webb.
As the field came to the checkered flag, Izzac Delaporte would prevail from Stefani Ameduri and Jake Avins to take out the sixth round of the JSRA Country Super Series.
Attention will now turn to Round 7 of the JSRA Country Super Series which heads to Southern Forest Machinery Raceway in Manjimup on Saturday April 1st.
