The statuesque continued in the Ivix Industries South West Sedan Championship second round at the Tyrepower Manjimup Speedway with Street Stocks Michael Hamon able to extend his points lead margin with a near faultless drive.
The current Production Sedan State Champion was joined by regular foe Kyle Sayer who took the victory in the Production Sedans while Seth Hinsey took out his first-round win in the series in the Junior Sedans.
Going undefeated over the night, Hamon had his work cut out for him in the feature race with three local drivers, Shane Whild, Jack Favero, and David Fall all surrounding him at one stage during the feature.
All three locals would make major errors in their quest to dethrone Hamon with Fall ending up getting the better of Favero for the last two spots on the podium.
Hamon now has only one mark against his name during the opening two rounds, winning all his events bar one where he finished second in the opening heat in Collie.
Sayer had his work cut out for him in an exciting feature for the Production Sedans with action throughout the whole field.
Albany’s Jason Batchelor threw all he had at the reigning Production Sedan Series Champion not giving in on the outside but sadly fell short.
Third place looked to be anyone’s when the caution flew with four to go when Jamie Higgs caught fire in turn four, with the third-place runner Rickie Nuccini slowing with mechanical problems. Fellow Collie driver Nathan Carter took advantage as the field went along the back straight, but his podium sights only lasted a corner when his right rear blew going up the hill. This elevated Shane Brittian who had a disastrous run in the qualifiers to finish on the last step on the podium.
Junior Sedans not to be outdone had a two-horse race for the entirety of their feature as Seth Hinsey and Brandon Buszan both not giving an inch as they worked their way through lap traffic, but it was one mistake made by Buszan as he tried to work his way past Seth’s sister Makayla the deciding factor.
The podium was rounded out by Hope Batchelor who drove brilliantly all night.
The series takes a break over the summer period with the next event at the Trade-Hire Augusta Margret River Speedway on March 13.
