Leisurely chase around race­track

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Reef and Rain­for­est Track will come alive again this Sun­day, with the Dou­glas Shire Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion’s River­side Leisure Park Lazy Sun­day.

The event will be open to all driv­ers from the age of 12, pro­vid­ing they have the proper pa­per­work and safety gear.

DSMSA spokesman Tony Fox said speed was not the most im­por­tant fac­tor in de­ter­min­ing who won the race against the clock.

“The em­pha­sis is on driver ed­u­ca­tion and skills, rather than out­right speed and with more skill than speed be­ing re­quired there are penal­ties for mis­takes,” DSMSA spokesman Tony Fox said.

“Penal­ties can range from a sim­ple five sec­ond de­duc­tion of time for hit­ting a hat, to a to­tal re­build if am­bi­tion ex­ceeds abil­ity on Colt Corner.”

There will be a com­pul­sory driv­ers brief­ing at the venue at 6.50am and the event will start im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the driv­ers brief­ing and run through un­til ap­prox­i­mately 9am.

The open event will fol­low im­me­di­ately.

Any driv­ers aged 14-16 who have pre­vi­ously com­peted in the ju­nior di­vi­sion are el­i­gi­ble to join the open di­vi­sion.
