Moss­man con­cludes FNQ com­pe­ti­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

KHANACROSS driv­ers from as far south as Mackay con­verged on the Reef and Rain­for­est Track at North Moss­man over the week­end of the 17th and 18th for the fourth and fi­nal round of the 2015 NQ Khanacross Cham­pi­onship.

A strong field of 28 driv­ers lined up for the two-day event with the south­ern driv­ers keen to test their skills on the chal­leng­ing Moss­man track.

With sev­eral driv­ers still in the hunt for the cham­pi­onship, com­pe­ti­tion was ex­pected to be fierce among the top driv­ers. Rac­ing started early on Satur­day morn­ing with the track dry and in good con­di­tion. Heavy rain half way through the sec­ond run caused a 1 ½ hour de­lay.

Rac­ing even­tu­ally con­tin­ued and the driv­ers set some fast and com­pet­i­tive times.

At the end of Satur­days com­pe­ti­tion Cairns driver Buddy King led the field by seven sec­onds in his Subaru WRX, ahead of rally leg­end Ross Dunker­ton and the Nis­san Mi­cra of Greg Er­win.

With driv­ers primed to go on Sun­day morn­ing more rain even­tu­ally caused the event to be can­celled. So Satur­day’s re­sults be­came the fi­nal re­sults,

Af­ter the four rounds in Proser­pine, Townsville, Ma­reeba and Moss­man, Mackay driver War­ren Mor­ton was crowned the 2015 cham­pion on 30 points.

Cairns driver and DSMSA mem­ber Greg Er­win was sec­ond on 29 points while Wayne Mor­ton was third.

Lo­cal Kara North was sec­ond in the ju­niors and first ladies, and Flynn Er­win third ju­nior.
