Tonight at the Perth Motorplex Blake Iwanow reset the record books on his way to claiming yet another feature win this year.
Iwanow was all class all night, claiming three heat wins from three starts and despite setting a new one lap and six lap record in the second heat, didnít have it all his own way as Kayne Dellar stepped up and really took it to the State Champion.
Courtesy of his three heat wins, Iwanow would start from pole position in the ten lap feature with Dellar on his outside and as the green flag flew Iwanow went straight to the lead hotly pursued by Dellar who came within a sniff in the third heat, while third placed Bryden Southwell was further back.
Dellar simply would not give up as he doggedly pursued Iwanow, but could not quite close the gap on Iwanow enough to make a passing maneuver.
Even going three wide through traffic didnít slow Iwanow down, in fact, he judged it so well that while Dellar got caught up, he went from a tiny gap in the lead to be nearly three seconds ahead with three laps to go.
Shortly after, the yellows would come on as Olivia Earle found herself facing the wrong way on the back straight, bunching up the field for a restart with three laps to go.
On the restart Dellar went low and drew alongside Iwanow, but Iwanow continued to use the mid track line and maintained his lead once again, racing away and claiming the win, his third at the Motorplex venue, ahead of Kayne Dellar and Chloe Dellar who despite crossing the line in fifth, was advanced to third after Bryden Southwell and Izak Davies were each relegated at the conclusion of the race.
The New Stars only had a small field and would race in with the Top Stars, Brock Lake eventually getting the biccies over Olivia Earle while Locky Comley, in just his third ever race meeting, made heavy contact with the front straight wall in the opening heat and would take no further part in the evenings proceedings.
The JSRA are back in action next weekend with the first round of the Country Series to be held at Moora Speedway on the 9th of November, and with solid nominations already received, it should be another good show.
