Mud will fly at lo­cal Khanacross this w’end

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

GET your back­sides trackside this Sun­day for the Dou­glas Shire Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion cham­pi­onship event at the Reef and Rain­for­est track just north of Moss­man on Fin­lay Vale Road.

“It’s all about short track rally ac­tion - we’re all on limited bud­get, we’re about be­ing com­pet­i­tive but not bet­ting the sheep sta­tion on any event,” said or­gan­iser Tony Fox.

Foxy said the DSMSA is great fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment and the club is al­ways look­ing for more mem­bers and driv­ers from 12 years and up can com­pete.

“Karin North has just started as a twelveyear-old and will cer­tainly be a great driver on our tracks and on the road in years to come,” said Foxy.

Last week­end the DSMSA mem­bers went to Her­ber­ton for a Far North Queens­land Mo­tor Sports Club Khanacross event.

“It’s al­ways a bit of fun to beat them on their own track at their game, and to come third against guys that have been on that track for the last ten years, for me per­son­ally it was a good re­sult,” said Foxy.

“The best re­sults were Jaiden Barnes and Alex Sco­maz­zon. Both fin­ished in the top ten and they are both un­der the age of 16.”

Jay­den was driv­ing a Ford Lazer and Alex a Dat­sun Stanza.

“Five mem­bers com­peted and ended up in the top ten. One missed out due to due to me­chan­i­cal prob­lems, but he would have been up there,” Foxy said.

The Hoff­man Fam­ily Fun Day on Sun­day gives com­peti­tors a chance to get points ap­pli­ca­ble, for both Khanacross and Ju­nior Mo­torkhana.

“We will be slash­ing and drag­ging the track from 2pm on Satur­day arvo so any one want­ing to help us set up for Sun­day is most wel­come to come out and help”.

Pre-nom­i­na­tions are es­sen­tial by lunchtime Satur­day. To pre-nom­i­nate or for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion go to­tor­sportsmoss­ or­tor­sportsmoss­­ru­mo­ or phone Foxy on 0409 228 778.
