Leisurely chase around racetrack
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.
