Jordyn Sinni has had a successful weekend in the Dunlop Super 2 Series at the Bosch Power Tools Perth SuperSprint, placing inside the top ten across the three-day event.  

 

Sinni made his mark straight up in Friday’s two practice sessions, placing third and second respectively. Although not for points, it gave the young racer the confidence he needed after a challenging weekend in Bathurst. 

 

“It felt really good coming out for practice and finishing inside the top three for those two sessions,” said Sinni. 

 

“It just really gave me some confidence and started our weekend on a high. The car felt great, and it was refreshing after a bit of a dismal round at Bathurst.” 

 

Sinni’s roaring pace continued into Saturday, after he managed to place the Car City #54 Holden in ninth for qualifying ahead of the first race.  

 

There was no denying teams were relieved to have been able to complete the entire scheduled race time for race 1 of the weekend, after races were previously cut short at Bathurst due to racing incidents.  

 

A total of 36-laps and 38-minutes run time allowed Sinni to work his way through the field, charging from ninth to sixth place, a personal best so far this season.  

 

“I would have liked to have qualified a little further up the field, considering the pace we had on the Friday, but we tuned up the car quite differently and it worked in our favour and we managed to come out with sixth,” said Sinni. 

 

“During the race my cool suit failed too, so it made the race pretty challenging. It was about 28degrees outside and got to about 60degrees inside the car. So, not having my cool suit definitely made the race tough, but that’s the reason that we train and ensure that we’re fit!”  

 

Times were again close for the second qualifying session and Sinni pulled a 0:55.3101 lap time, just 00.2142 from pole, good enough to place him eighth for race 2.  

 

However, Sunday’s final race was cut short due to a scary rollover from Cameron McLeod and so only 13 laps were completed. Sinni finished an impressive seventh, one place ahead of where he started.  

 

“There really wasn’t much in qualifying, times were so close. But I was able to move up and gain some positions to where I started and brought it home in seventh – so I’m pretty happy with that,” said Sinni.  

 

“We were actually fifth on track, however given the red flag they take the position from a lap back – which put us into seventh.  

 

“It was great to bank some Championship points though, and we’ve now moved up inside the ten, which is pretty cool.  

 

“A big thanks to the crew for all their hard work all weekend and leading up to the race. To be able to sit inside the top 10 consistently proves that we have the pace. I’m really pleased with how the weekend went overall. We’ll regroup and go again for Townsville.”  

 

The Dunlop Super 2 Series next head to QLD for the NTI Townsville 500, July 5-7.
