Moulden doubles up
Backing up her winning performance in round one, Jess Moulden is currently leading the way in the Salt Electrical Ladies of the Dirt Series point standings, with last Saturday night’s victory in the third series round at Nyora Raceway further consolidating her position.
With the weather having not been kind so far throughout the Salt Electrical Ladies of the Dirt Series, causing two rounds to be cancelled, the drivers were eager to take to the track during last Saturday night’s event and it was Moulden who made her presence known from the outset.
Qualifying on pole for the 15-lap feature race by virtue of a win and a runner-up finish in the heat races, Moulden was a model of consistency during the event, hitting each of her marks and claiming first place, making it two wins from three contested rounds, which has well and truly cemented her place at the top of the leaderboard.
Not contented to settle for second place, a hard-charging Renae Eastham refused to make things easy for Moulden after lining up alongside the pole-sitter on the front row. However, despite applying constant pressure throughout the distance, Eastham wasn’t quite able to make a passing move, eventually greeting the chequered flag not far behind the winner.
Ebony Hobson scored the final podium place, while Samantha Millar, Bree Hall, Jessie Garlick and Jade Moule completed the feature-race finishers.
Previewing what would be an exciting battle during the feature race between the top two, Moulden was victorious in the opening heat race, followed by Eastham, who took top honours in heat-race two.
Due to the two cancelled rounds, the fourth and final Salt Electrical Ladies of the Dirt Series round has been rescheduled to take place this Saturday night at Darlington’s Mid-Western Speedway, where Moulden’s rivals will no doubt be hoping to put a stop to her dominance.
