The 29th July 2012 Khanacross and Junior Motorkhana results

The Reef and Rainforest Track finally dried out enough last Sunday for the members of the Douglas Shire Motor Sports Association to rev their engines and hit the track for the third time this year.

Five juniors lined up in the junior club car to compete in the Motorkhana. Kara North continued from where she left off from the last event to win comfortably on a time of 501.88 seconds.

Less than half a second separated 2nd and 3rd with Cairns driver Jaidyn Farmer 526.57 just edging out the fast improving D’rel Smith on 526.95 seconds, while Erin Kenna finished fourth on a time of 572.14.

Despite finishing last on 730.07 seconds Krystal Secker continued to gain confidence behind the wheel with her times improving throughout the day.

Ford Lasers dominated the khanacross results taking the top four places, with John Kenna again winning on a time of 593 seconds. Dave Coulson 627 seconds finished second narrowly beating off a late challenge from his son Matt on 628 seconds to beat him by just one second, Finishing a second further back and first in the Ladies class was Krista O’Dell on 629 seconds.

Matts third place outright was an impressive result considering he is still a junior and that he beat many older and more exprienced drivers. Second Junior home was Hayley Kenna while Dal’n Smith rounded out the top three.

Following his win John has now increased his lead in the club championship. He now sits on 59 points, 6 clear Krista O’Dell on 53 while John Farmer sits 5 points further back on 48points.

The Association will be hosting the third round of the NQ khanacross series on the 11th and 12th of August. Drivers from Cairns, Townsville, and the Whitsundays will be competing along side our local drivers.
