It was back to the track for Jake Fisher on Saturday and Sunday night, fresh from a successful national title over in the east.

The final of the two-round race meet of the KJB Fabrication Junior Gold Cup was his most successful and he was thrilled at the result.

Starting on Saturday night at Bunbury Speedway, the bad luck curse struck him once again with a DNF in the feature. While battling for the lead with Jake Lehman, there was contact and Fisher pulled the car infield with a flat tyre, unfortunately ending his night.

It left him with a sour taste, after doing well in the heat races, showing real race grit and also, after his recent national title stanza, a massive confidence lift as well.

After the first night, it was up to Collie Speedway for the final round of the event where, once again Fisher was on the pace.

His first heat saw him finish second and when a 9th place start in his second heat, saw him moving through the field, a steering rack issue saw him onto the infield once again.

A strong-minded competitor will always bounce back in times of being tested and for the young ace, this is what he did in the final heat of the night, by winning the race from position three, which on a challenging race track was a great result.

Entering into the feature race for the night, it was a great race with Fisher dicing for the lead and it went down to the wire with him coming home in second place.

His consistency was rewarded also with an overall third place for the two nights of racing, yet another plus for the youngster who is finishing his junior speedway on a high.

With only a few months remaining of his speedway young years as a junior, he is looking forward to the remainder of his racing on the dirt track.

Building up to the WA title to be held at Hillview Speedway in Newman in early April, he will race the last couple of events locally before the title event and then wind his speedway career up by the end of June this year.

He has already turned his eyes to the tarmac, competing at Collie Motorplex last weekend for a round of the WA Speed Series, where he finished mid-pack in his racing class, a strong result with only limited time behind the wheel.

In such a short time, Jake Fisher has done everything right to lead him towards a very bright future in any form of motorsport he aims for. Talent doesn’t just land in your lap, you have to spend time developing and growing it. Something he has done extremely well.
