Jonic has sights set on M'boro Speedway

SPEEDWAY: One of the best junior drivers in Australia has a target set firmly on success at Maryborough Speedway.

Ipswich junior Ardie Jonic will start his National Junior Sedans Title campaign, held at the Heritage City venue from January 12 to 14, in hot form after he reclaimed the South Australian title at Waikerie's Sunline Speedway.

Jonic was forced to surrender his SA title last year due to injury, and was hell-bent on reclaiming the title he previously won in 2016.

"It's really great to win back the South Australian Title after being unable to defend it last season; the South Australians definitely didn't make it easy for me, but there were some great battles in the feature race which I really enjoyed,” the 15-year-old said.

"With it being our first visit to Sunline Speedway, the team and I had to work on our car set-up as the night went on, but we were able to get the hang of it pretty quickly.”

Maryborough Speedway's next meet is the two-night Kurt Murdoch Classic on December 29-30.
