Jonic Defends Title




Ardie Jonic has successfully defended his Northern Territory Junior Sedan Title at the Arunga Park Speedway, Alice Springs, on Saturday night, just the second driver in the history of the event to do so.

The Junior Sedan racing was the best seen at the venue since the 2012 National Title, with all nine qualifying heats going conducted without a stoppage.

Victorian Jye Irving would start from pole position for the A Main, after winning all three of his qualifying heats. Defending Champion, Jonic, would start on his outside, courtesy of two heat victories, while South Australian Tyson Greig and West Australian Zac Minshull would start on row two.

It would be a disastrous start for Irving who half spun on turn two on the opening lap, and by the time he had recovered more than half the field had passed him on the back straight.

This left Jonic with a massive lead after the opening lap, with Zac Minshull moving to second and Tyson Greig elevated to third.

The lead three positions remained unchanged through the first seven laps, before Dylan Parkes from Western Australia, who finished second in last years Territory Title, moved to third.

In a brilliant spectacle, the main body of the field were chasing hard, two and three wide, lap after lap, with the race having just two stoppages on lap ten and nineteen.

On the first stoppage, Jonic was able to instantly regain a huge advantage, leaving Minshull six car lengths behind at the restart.

The second stoppage for a minor spin, six laps from the end bunched the field again, with the lead three cars again clearing away from the field, with some frantic positional moves in the main body of the field, resulting in many positional changes in the concluding stages.

Jonic drove away from the two West Australians in the final few laps to win his fifth Junior Sedan State Title, while Zac Minshull recorded his best ever result. Dylan Parkes stormed home on the final lap, missing second place by 0.266 to finish third.

Behind the trio, Victorian Ricky Cornwall would finish fourth, just ahead of Jye Irving who drove a brilliant race, recovering to finish fifth.

Jonics dominance shows no signs of abating, recording the quickest lap of the race, while earlier in heat nine he broke the long standing ten lap track record by more than four seconds.
