Jesse Davis wins maiden 1/8th IC Track national title

Jesse Davis wins maiden 1/8th IC Track national title

The 1/8th Australian IC On-Road Titles were recently held at the Lilydale track, just outside of Melbourne in Victoria. Jesse Davis set the fastest time in the opening of the six rounds of 10 minute qualifying with a 41/10:04.273, from Jeff Hamon and Steven Jovanovic, both with 40 laps. No one was able to match Davis’ in Q2 but Jovanovic came close with a 41/10:10.075 in Q3 and then Hamon even closer with a 41/10:05.277 in Q4. In the final round of qualifying, Davis improved his time with 41/10:00.496 to cement the TQ position into the 45 minute main final. Unfortunately, the rain started to fall before the race commenced and with no end in sight, the decision was made to abandon the race and base the final results off qualifying, therefore giving Jesse Davis his first ever 1/8th Australian IC On-Road Title and some added confidence leading up to the World Championships in Brazil. Hamon had to settle for second with Jovanovic third.

Thanks to Leigh Dytor for the report.
