The 17th May 2015 Khanacross results

Junior drivers continue to impress

The Douglas Shire Motor Sport Association held a khanacross last Sunday with junior drivers continuing to impress filling three of the top six places.

After some overnight rain the track was very greasy early on which tested all the drivers but as the track dried out it gripped up well and some fast times were recorded.

While the event was won by Greg Erwin in his Nissan Micra all eyes were on the ever improving juniors

Flynn Erwin, driving his Nissan Micra was the first placed junior finishing a very creditable third outright and upstaging many of the club’s older and more experienced members.

Just two tenths of a second further back in fourth place was the Ford Laser of another junior, Josh Coulson. After a strong start Josh had been sitting in outright second but a wrong direction on his sixth run saw him penalised more than twenty seconds, dropping him down the time sheet.

Young Christopher Dwyer was a bit of a quiet achiever finishing third junior and sixth outright in the club’s Daewoo Cielo.

Greg Skyring won the rear wheel drive class ahead of George Davenport and Melanie Johanson.

First time competitor Buddy King drove well to win the four wheel drive class in his Subaru WRX beating home Richard Teeling and Mathew Jacobsen

Being the only competitor in the junior motorkhana didn’t stop Ashton Davenport from having fun finishing on a time of 847 seconds.

Club secretary Stacie Stephenson said that it was great to see the juniors doing so well. “Although sometimes it can a bit embarrassing being beaten by a fourteen year old” she said.

The Association would like to thank Trevor White from T & C Grader Hire who donated his time recently to grade the track for the club.
