The 13th July 2014 Khanacross and Junior Motorkhana results

After three events were cancelled earlier in the year due to wet weather members from the Douglas Shire Motor Sport Association finally hit the track for the first time last Sunday.

Despite the six month lay off members were revved up and keen to blow the cobwebs out of their race cars.

The club welcomed several new drivers including three new junior drivers, who despite their initial inexperience were soon spinning their wheels and kicking up some dust.

The khanacross was won by last year’s championship runner up Bruce Perry driving his all wheel drive Subaru Liberty on a time of 368 seconds.

Father and son duo of Greg and Kyle Skyring raced hard against each all day for second spot but a penalty for a wrong direction by Kyle in the second last run of the day saw him slide back down the leader board and hand second place to Greg.

Despite battling clutch problems all day, Justin Van Dyk had his best result to date nursing his Hyundai Excel into third place.

New member Greg Erwin pushed the club Falcon into a very respectable fourth outright while Stick Quinn brought his BMW home to round out the top five.

Krystal Secker had a day she would probably like to for get loosing control of her Honda and nudging the bank at the top of the hill. Fortunately the only thing she hurt was her pride and she was able to swap cars and continue racing.

Tayla North powered her way to win the junior motorkhana on a time of 291 seconds ahead of Drew Van Dyk on a time of 305 seconds.

Sheree Pumpa, 331 seconds finished third beating Brayden Van Dyk on 379 seconds while Flynn Skerke-Erwin rounded out the top five. It was a good effort by the twelve year old who had never driven a car up until the day.
