Jordyn Sinni has notched up his first drive at Mount Panorama in the Dunlop Super2 Series on the weekend. The youngster showed much potential and maturity, sitting inside the top 15 for the majority of the weekend.  

The #54 Car City entry rolled out for practice on Thursday, finishing 14th and 15th respectively. Sinni continued to improve on results and crossed the line in 13th place for Friday’s qualifying session. It would be the first race though that would be his best finish for the round, bringing home the Eggleston Motorsport ZB Commodore in tenth position.  

“I was super nervous going into the round,” said Sinni. 

“Obviously the first couple of practice sessions I was just getting used to the track and learning as much as I could. I was happy to have finished up 13th in Friday’s qualifying session, which put me in a relatively good position ahead of the race.  

“I got a pretty good start and managed to stay out of the hustle and bustle and just had my eyes forward. I just wanted to bring the car home straight in and one piece and I managed to better my positions yet again and cross the line in 10th, which I’m pretty happy with.”  

Saturday would be the final day of racing for the Dunlop Super 2 Series and Sinni matched the previous day’s qualifying position of 13th 

A stalled car at the start line forced Sinni to the outside heading into Turn 1, in a rush to steer clear of carnage. Sinni fell into a groove though and was sitting comfortably in tenth position. With only three laps to go, a mechanical failure dampened his hopes and Sinni had to limp the #54 Car City entry across the finish line.  

“We didn’t quite get our push lap in qualifying, so I would have liked to have finished a little further up the grid ahead of the race. But, it’s all part of learning,” said Sinni. 

“The car was feeling really good during the race and I was able to keep up with the front runners and I was sitting tenth. Unfortunately, with only three laps to go I had a clutch issue and I had to limp the car to the finish and ultimately finished up 15th.  

“It was such a shame as we were doing so well. It would have been nice to have come away from the weekend with two tenth place finishes. But that’s motor racing!  

“A big thanks to the crew at Eggelston Motorsport for giving me a mega car all weekend and of course thanks to all my sponsors for their support!  

“I can’t wait to get onto Adelaide for the final round of the Championship in November!”  

The Dunlop Super 2 Series next heads to the Vailo Adelaide 500, November 24-26.
