Khanacross not such a lazy Sun­day drive

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE River­side Leisure Park Lazy Sun­day at the Dou­glas Shire Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion was no leisurely Sun­day drive.

The dust was fly­ing very early with a ju­nior mo­torkhana, fol­lowed by an open khanacross, with close com­pet­i­tive driv­ing through­out the day.

Bob Er­rey did try and con­vince oth­ers that it’s not com­pet­i­tive at all, and sim­ply all about fun. Fun­nily enough he checked his times im­me­di­ately af­ter ev­ery run, and made no se­cret of his de­sire to win or to Tony Fox. And just as well it was all about fun only be­cause Bob was un­able to achieve ei­ther.

Scott Cahill was the even­tual win­ner of the Khanacross, with Foxy four sec­onds be­hind in sec­ond place, and Bob a fur­ther four sec­onds back in third. The lead changed hands a num­ber of times through­out the day, with all three hit­ting a witches hat at dif­fer­ent times, and it al­most be­came an event to lose by any one of them.

The Ju­nior Mo­torkhana had Simon Bent­ley as the clear win­ner, fol­lowed by his sis­ter Elise, with Kara North round­ing out the three in third.

Nat­u­rally there has been some move­ment in the club cham­pi­onship stand­ings. Tony Fox moved into top spot in the open di­vi­sion, five points clear of Jaiden Barnes.

Kara North leads the ju­nior mo­torkhana stand­ings, 15 points ahead of Bry­die Short.

The next DSMSA event, the Hoff­man Paint­ing Fam­ily Week­end, is only three weeks away, on Satur­day, Septem­ber 4 and Sun­day, Septem­ber 5.

In an ef­fort to en­sure ev­ery­one gets in as many runs as pos­si­ble, the ju­nior mo­torkhana will be run on Satur­day af­ter­noon, with the open khanacross all day Sun­day.

How­ever, mem­bers are in­vited to take part in the FNQMSC two­day event at Her­ber­ton on 28 and 29 Au­gust as part of the 2010 NQ Khanacross Cham­pi­onship.

The club would like to ex­tend a big thanks to Deb­bie and Kevin Barnes, pro­pri­etors of the Moss­man River­side Leisure Park, for their spon­sor­ship of the event and on­go­ing DSMSA in­put and sup­port.
