Four members from the Douglas Shire Motor Sport Association competed in the second round of the NQ khanacross series last Sunday.

The event attracted drivers from Cairns, Mossman and as far south as Mackay to the FNQ Motorsports Club’s new track, Rally Sport Park at Mareeba.

The series comprises four rounds, two at Tonka Park, Proserpine, this round at Mareeba and the final round at Mossman’s Reef and Rainforest track.

Despite dry and dusty conditions and a tight tree lined track, competition was fierce both for outright and class results.

Shane North came out of retirement “again” to drive his daughters Ford Laser finishing third in the under 1600 class and sixth outright to be the best placed Mossman driver. Not bad for some who had not even planned to race the weekend.

Northy’s daughter Kara finished second in the junior class and third in the Ladies class but couldn’t match her dad for outright speed.

Bob Errey found the track not to his liking and his larger Ford Cortina struggled in the conditions finishing fourth in the over 2 litre class and fourteenth outright.

Anthony Baldwin finished further down the timesheets as he was using the weekend to run in a new five litre V8 that he has fitted to his Holden Commodore in the off season.
