Zach Munro and Locky Comley have won the Top Star and New Star Junior Sedan feature races respectively held at the Perth Motorplex last night.
In what was also the third round of the JSRA season, and an event paying tribute to Life Member Jo McCann, a total of twenty eight Juniors made their way to the Perth Motorplex for two heats and a feature race.
Despite missing the opening heat after racing in New Zealand on Friday night, Zach Munro made a mercy dash straight from the airport to the Perth Motorplex and was able to make the most of last night’s event, scoring a fourth in the second heat, then racing through the field from position seven to be battling with State Champion Beau Oldfield early on in the Top Star feature race.
Beau would lead for the opening six laps, but eventually Munro would make his move, the du racing side by side for a number of laps before eventually Munro took complete control and pulled away, going on to record his second Perth Motorplex career victory by over two seconds.
Beau Oldfield would settle for second while Jesse James Samuels was an impressive third place.
Locky Comley meanwhile returned to the venue he had not raced at for a good deal of time, one of his last visits seeing his night ended prematurely after contact with the front straight wall, but he put those demons behind him to record a win and a second place in the heats to set up a front row start alongside the much improved Mackenzie Silver, who also put in a great performance throughout the heats.
Comley would grab the lead immediately while Addison Walsh jumped into second place and Silver into third.
Reuben Walsh would also make his presence felt, passing both Silver and Addison Walsh on lap four to be in second place, with Silver also passing Addison on lap five for third.
Comley would go on to grab his second JSRA feature race in a row, and his first career Motorplex win, with Reuben Walsh second and Mackenzie Silver an exciting third.
The next JSRA Round will be held at Mount Barker Speedway on December 10th.
