Jesse Davis takes Australian On-Road national champs

Jesse Davis takes Australian On-Road national champs

During the recent Australian Nitro On-road National Championships Capricorn’s Jesse Davis was able to grab the 200mm Touring class title. In practice, Jesse was in a class of his own, somewhat faster than the rest of the field with his XRD-powered car. Come qualifying, Jesse looked doomed as a diff breakage seen him retire from the first qualifier, only to go out in the second and win by some 7 second margin. In the 3rd qualifier, it was another mechanical issue just like the first heat, but come the 4, 5 and 6th round, Jesse was on fire and his 4th national’s TQ was secured. There was no looking back. The 45 Minute A-main did not come easy, Jesse losing a lap earlier on due to a flameout, only to drive a brilliant second half of the race and come past and lap the field and gain the lap back, Jesse was in cruise control come the last 10 minutes of the race and went on to win by over 3 laps at the Little Hampton track, which is by far the biggest track in Australia.
