For young gun Jake Fisher, the recent WA Title experience is paying off in spades. Competing in the 50th Anniversary Bunbury Car Club event at Bunbury Speedway on Saturday, he was hard at the contest managing to bring the car home in a very commendable second place.
The experience showing in his heat races, in fact, all three races saw him move forward and earn valuable points for the feature race.
One of the most encouraging signs for Fisher was the way he managed to push his car through the fields, particularly in his second and third heats races of the event.
Coming from third to second in his first heat, his second race saw him move six places, coming from a ninth-place start to finish in third. Where his final heat, saw him come from tenth place on the gris to finish in third also.
Giving him a second-place start in the A Main event, he fought with the leader all the way and brough the car home in a podium finishing second place.
A very credible effort and thus continuing his rich vein of form off the back of his state title effort.
Perhaps the most outstanding trait is how he is adapting to life in his new car, only recently attained. It is also worth noting that this will be the same car that he intends to head east in January to Mildura Speedway in Victoria for his national championship event.
With the 22/23 season winding down, most will shelve their machinery or build new ones for the approaching season but Jake Fisher believes that seat time and laps will count for everything.
And that is exactly his plan for the winter months ahead. Racing at Ellenbrook and Kelleberrin Speedways to help keep the laps up and give him every best chance to be a competitive force come January.
If the recent results are anything to go by, he is well on his way to achieving that with ease.
