Khanacross has two big week­ends

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

MOSS­MAN will host two big week­ends of mo­tor sport this month fea­tur­ing com­pe­ti­tions for rid­ers of all ages and lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence.

This Sun­day, Au­gust 7, the Dou­glas Shire Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion will hold a com­bined khanacross and ju­nior mo­torkhana which kicks off at 8.30am.

Com­peti­tors of all ages will be lin­ing up the Reef and Rain­for­est Track at North Moss­man to take part.

Ju­niors can com­pete in the Mo­torkhana from age 12 and in the khanacross from 14.

DSMSA pres­i­dent Bob Er­rey said new mem­bers were wel­come.

“No ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary and the club has in­struc­tors on hand to help with novice driv­ers,” he said.

“This is a safe and con­trolled en­vi­ron­ment for teenagers to learn to drive and to learn car con­trol skills.”

The fol­low­ing week­end the as­so­ci­a­tion is host­ing round three of the NQ Khanacross Se­ries.

Driv­ers from as far south as Mackay will be rac­ing, pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal driv­ers to show­case their skills on their home track against the south­ern com­peti­tors.

The two day event starts at 10.00am on Satur­day and 8.30am on Sun­day.
