The 19th August 2012 Khanacross and Junior Motorkhana results

Car racing returned to the Reef and Rainforest Track at North Mossman last Sunday for a Khanacross and Junior Motorkhana.

Outright winner was Cairns junior Matt Coulson who finished on a time of 647 seconds. This was an outstanding effort given that Matt is still only seventeen and in winning the event beat home many older and more experienced drivers.

Matt who joined the club several years ago and also races go-karts in Cairns has been progressively getting faster and improving his driving skills to the point where he has now won his first event.

Krista O’Dell put in another sterling effort to finish in second place on 650 seconds four seconds ahead of her partner, John Kenna who bought home his Ford Laser in third on 654 seconds.

Matts father, Dave was fourth on 669 seconds ahead of the Ford Cortina of club president Bob Errey on 689 seconds.

Only three kids lined up for the Junior Motorkhana with Jaidyn Farmer and Kara North swapping fastest times through out the day.

After nine runs it was Jaidyn who had etched out a narrow three second lead to finish on a time of 356 seconds ahead of Kara on 359 seconds. In third place was D’rel Smith on 375 seconds.

The clubs next event is on 9th September
