Mossman concludes FNQ competition
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.
