In his first ever WA Championship, Jake Fisher has surprised all before him with a scintillating driving display to finish in 7th place at the 2023 WA Junior Sedan Title at Ellenbrook Speedway over the weekend.
Hoping just to make it into the A Main, Fisher was outstanding and was elated with his finish for the championship, albeit, his first time at the state level of junior sedan speedway competition.
With the expectation, just to improve each time he hit the track, he did far more than anyone expected. Qualifying in 8th place he was strong in his first heat, bringing the car home in the top ten.
Hi second heat was the toughest and while he recorded a DNF for the race, he would stand firm in the remaining heat races of the weekend, to qualify at the front of the B Main.
A 20 lap affair, Fisher won the B Main, qualifying him for a 17th place start in the A Main feature for the championship.
Using all of his experience, he passed several cars and kept his nose clean. It was almost surreal for the youngster as he continued his march forward. Passing several more competitors, he brought the car home in 7th place, making an incredible 10 places in the feature race.
Almost wanting more, as he was confident he could have placed the car on the podium if he had more time. Lamenting a DNF in his second heat, he would have to be pleased with such an amazing feat for his first title.
He will look to eye a national championship in 2024 in the Eastern States and one would think that this talented young racer, out of Bunbury WA has come of age in recent months, due to his ability to adjust to his racing environments, wherever he races.
A great way to complete his season, he will spend more time in the seat and would be looking to eye a spot in a national title A Main in 2024.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our team partners who have helped us get Jake to where he now sits in the sport… thankyou so much.
