Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

How long have you been in the club? I only went to the last meet on the weekend and loved it, so I joined the club. Why did you de­cide to give it a try? My neigh­bour does it. His dad is an awe­some driver and was a rally cham­pion. Their fam­ily al­ways go up, so I went with them and just loved it. I had so much fun. What is your favourite part of mo­torkhana? I re­ally loved watch­ing it and see­ing peo­ple’s t i mes. Es­pe­cially the older peo­ple to see how good they can drive and how fast they go. What is the worst thing? It was my first time there, so I was re­ally scared and ner­vous that I would do some­thing wrong. It felt like there were heaps of peo­ple watch­ing me, which just made me more ner­vous. Did you have any em­bar­rass­ing mo­ments? When I was driv­ing back to the garage I stalled the car. Ev­ery­one laughed and I had to start the car again and keep mov­ing. Do you have a favourite per­son in the club? I got to meet ev­ery­one and they were all so nice and wel­com­ing so it’s hard to pick one. Bob was in the car with me di­rect­ing, giv­ing me driv­ing ad­vice and keep­ing me calm. I re­ally en­joyed his com­pany and I liked watch­ing him drive. Best time on the track? They changed the course a few times so I’m not sure of my best time, but I did get third over­all and got a tro­phy. When is the next event? It is once a month, so I hope to go again next month. Fu­ture plans for the sport? I just want to keep driv­ing at the club and im­prove my skills. Do you think it will make you a bet­ter driver when it comes to get­ting your li­cence? I think it definit­ley will. Even af­ter only one day driv­ing I feel I learnt a lot. I think it is good ex­pe­ri­ence for any­one. Why should peo­ple join? It is a re­ally good, fun day out. Not only do you get to drive but it’s also fun to watch other peo­ple com­pete and try to beat their times. It de­vel­ops some healthy com­pe­ti­tion, you learn new skills and get to meet some re­ally nice peo­ple.
