21st and 22nd May 2023
ROUND 1 INTER-CLUB CHALLENGE Khanacross and Junior Motorkhana

Points all tied after first round of Inter-Club Challenge

The first round of the Inter-Club Challenge between our club and the FNQ Motor Sport Club was run over the weekend of 20th and 21st May.

Thirty-four competitors line up for the two day event including four newbies in the Junior Motorkhana.

Graeme Colls looked to have the event won but a five second penalty late in the day saw Simon Taylor sneak into the lead with only the last two runs to go.

Taylor finished his last two runs putting in an impressive time on each, and then it was all eyes on the scoring monitor as Colls took to the track. The end result- a win to Colls by just 35 hundredths of second.

Flynn Dunkerton made a welcome return to the track taking out third spot in his Subaru Impreza.

Daniel Easton did well to finish in the top five after and engine fire late on Saturday caused by a blown oil feed hose resulted in him unable to finish the last run of the day and a slowest time plus five seconds recorded against his name.

Daniel Andrews drove well to take his maiden win in the Junior class. Andrews has been bridesmaid to the Perry twins for most of this racing career and with the Perrys now eighteen and no longer juniors it was his chance to shine.

Andrews was also second in the FWD class behind Shane Buchanan and just ahead of Townsvillian Lance Melrose.

Trevor Thompson held a twenty something second lead over Bob Errey in the RWD class coming into the last runs of the day, but a brain fade by Thompson saw five witches hats laying on their side with the resultant penalty catapulting Errey to a historic class win.

Hugo Erwin’s karting skills gave him the advantage in winning the Junior Motorkhana, ahead of Zaeb Rix, Thomas Gardner and Cole Ward-Cameron.

Heading to the final round of the Challenge in September the score is all tied up at ten points each.
