The 10th August 2014 Khanacross and Junior Motorkhana results

Grey skies and drizzle welcomed competitors to the Reef and Rainforest Track last Sunday for the Douglas Shire Motor Sport Associationís khanacross and junior motorkhana.

For a while it appeared as if the club would have to cancel another event, the fourth for the year but as the rain stopped and the skies cleared event organisers made the decision to run the event.

Thus track conditions were slippery and muddy with several drivers barely able to make it up the hill on the look lap, but as the day progressed the rain held off the track began to dry out and grip up.

Despite eventual winner Bruce Perry seemingly having the advantage in his four wheel drive Subaru he did not have things go all his way with both Greg Skyring and Justin Van Dyk recording fastest times on a couple of runs.

Consistent times by Bruce proved to be the winner on the day though and after eight runs he topped the time sheet with an overall time of 429 seconds.

Greg slipped and slid his Chrysler Gallant in to second spot on a time of 443 seconds while Michelle Van Dyk surprised many with her gutsy drive to finish 3rd outright and first ladies class. It was Michelleís best result to date and made even more sweeter by the fact that she beat home hubby, Justin.

The father and daughter duo of Tony and Brittany Cristaudo finished fourth and fifth respectively, a good result considering it was there first time competing at the Mossman track.

The junior class was hotly contested with less than two seconds separating the top three drivers. Cairns driver Flynn Dunkerton slid his Hyundai into first on 481.98 seconds closely followed by Kara North 482.12 and Cassidy Pumpa 483.29.

Driving in only his second event Flynn Skerke-Erwin won the junior motorkhana ahead of bothers Drew and Brayden Van Dyk while first timer Fynnian Lawson rounded out the top four.
