The 17th November 2013 Khanacross and Junior Motorkhana results

The Douglas Shire Motor Sports Association held their second last event for the year on Sunday 17th November and after the previous event was rained out all sixteen competitors in the Khanacross and seven in the junior motorkhana were keen to hit the track.

The club has been doing some drainage and earth works over the last couple of months and has also constructed a couple of new tracks which club President Bob Errey was keen to use for the first time. While some drivers thought the new layout was a bit confusing, the only person to stuff up and get it wrong was Bob.

The junior motorkhana competitors all had driving instructor Shane North on the edge of his seat, with Ryan Walker and Tayla North both nearly going over the motorbike jumps.

Flynn Dunkerton took an early lead setting the fastest times for the first three runs but a strong finish by Cassidy Pumpa saw her win on a time of 448.00 seconds. Second place went to a much improved Krystal Secker on a time of 481.19 seconds followed by Drew Van Dyk on a time of 493.62

Several of the juniors will be turning fourteen in the next few months and are already looking forward to competing on the longer khanacross track.

In the khanacross Bruce Perry once again powered his Subaru into first spot on a time of 454 seconds but most eyes were on the father son rivalry between Dave, Matt and Josh Coulson.

At the end of the day it was eldest son, Matt beating home dad for second place with young Josh finishing a strong forth overall.

Also of note was Melanie Irwin beating her partner Carl Johanson overall by 37.5 seconds or did Carl let Mel win as it was her birthday?

Junior khanacross drivers Christopher Dwyer and Kara (Tree) North continue to grow in confidence behind the wheel with every race meeting.

The next race event will be held on Saturday 14th December following by the club Christmas break up and annual Trophy’s presentation which will be held at the track from 5 pm onwards.
