FISHER LANDS TOP FIVE AT BUNBURY
Jake Fisher surprised over the weekend as he tackled the Bunbury Speedway in a last minute call up to race.
Supporting the WA 360 Sprintcar championship, the Junior division was called up as support and Fisher didn’t miss the opportunity.
A strong field gathered for a chance to show their skill before another large crowd. This meeting would be synonymous for the youngster as this would also be the last time that his beloved Hyundai Excel would see the race track.
With his Mitsubishi Mirage ready to go, he brought the car that has brought him so much success out one more time to give it a run.
It was a move that would pay off for him as the first heat heralded a good result of 5th place. With his second heat, finishing in 4th, this placed him in 4th place on the A-Main starting lineup.
Supporting a sprint car event in a junior sedan is no easy task but Fisher was up for the fight and as the green flag dropped to start the race, Fisher knew it was all about keeping his eye on his rivals.
While other cars tried to push past, he held his own and was impressive in parts to hold onto a 5th-place finish against some quality opposition.
With the Mirage now ready to fire up, Fisher will look at a settling-in period for a few events as the WA title looms closer.
Several races are now planned for him to settle into the new car, as an ongoing part of his season campaign. He will race at several venues before the massive event in April.
With so much experience for him to come and what he has done so far, a state title A Main appearance is definitely on the cards and he is looking forward to seeing what he can achieve in the coming weeks ahead.
