The 29th May 2016 Khanacross and Motorkhana results

The Douglas Shire Motor Sports Association held round four of its 2016 club championship last Sunday at the Reef and Rainforest Track.

After being rained out the previous weekend the track was in surprisingly good condition.

With some moisture still in the track grip levels were up promising some fast times.

Several members are travelling down to Proserpine next weekend for Round one of the NQ khanacross Series and so it was a good chance for them to do final testing before the ten hour drive south.

After rolling his Nissan Micra at round one Club Champion Greg Erwin made a welcome return with his new car, another Nissan Micra. He was quickly on the pace setting fastest time on the first run of the day.

Ross Dunkerton brought his Datsun 1600 up from Cairns for a run. Despite setting fastest times on many of the tracks, a five second penalty for hitting a witches hat proved costly as he finished two seconds behind eventual winner Greg.

The stand out performance of the day was young junior driver Heath Barry who finished third outright, driving Kara North’s Ford Laser. It was only the first time he had driven the car.

Flynn Dunkerton showed that the Daihatsu club car is faster than the Datsun 1600 by beating his older brother, Aaron by twelve seconds.

Anthony Baldwin proved that Hilux’s are not unbreakable when he flipped his onto its roof on the last run of the day. Fortunately the only thing to break was the Hilux.

Zed Thackray tested out the new engine in the junior club car winning the junior motorkhana on a time of 25mins 45secs.

The Associations next event is on June 19th.
