Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THE Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club will be hold­ing the first round of the Mixed Ti­tle Khanacross Cham­pi­onship at the Whit­sun­day and Tonker Park Race­way this weekend.

On Satur­day, driv­ers will put their skills to the test on the tar­mac track of the Whit­sun­day Race­way be­fore tak­ing on the dirt track on Sun­day.

Gates open at 7am and spec­ta­tors are wel­come to at­tend to sup­port lo­cal driv­ers as they bat­tle it out across both rac­ing for­mats.

The club re­cently an­nounced a spon­sor­ship agree­ment with CQ Field Min­ing Ser­vices and part­ner busi­ness Hendry’s Au­to­mo­tive Ex­cel­lence.

CQ Field Min­ing Ser­vices di­rec­tor Ja­son Holt said the spon­sor­ship would be used to im­prove the qual­ity of driver train­ing and the club’s mo­tor sport track.

“The Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club is the fastest grow­ing mo­tor sport fa­cil­ity out­side of south-east Queens­land, at­tract­ing driv­ers from through­out the cen­tral and north Queens­land area,” he said.

“Ma­jor ti­tle events are held here an­nu­ally and CQ Field Min­ing Ser­vices are proud to be sup­port­ing that growth as the nam­ing rights spon­sor of the club’s track at Tonker Park.”

The Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club fa­cil­i­ties al­low the club to run a range of events in­clud­ing safe driver train­ing for ve­hi­cles from high per­for­mance to ba­sic old cars and pro­fes­sional rally cars.

He said the Khanacross for­mat of events pro­moted a safe, com­pet­i­tive mo­tor sport en­vi­ron­ment for driv­ers aged from 12 and up.

Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club pres­i­dent War­ren Mor­ton said the spon­sor­ship caped off a great start to the year as many club mem­bers were highly awarded at the re­cent Queens­land rally ti­tles 2013 awards night.

The Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club op­er­ates out of the large dirt sur­faced cir­cuit track lo­cated off Las­celles Road, Proser­pine be­tween the Whit­sun­day Dirt Rid­ers Club and the Whit­sun­day Mo­tor Sport Club’s kart cir­cuit.

NEW SPON­SOR: War­ren Hendry from CQ Field Min­ing Ser­vices and Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club trea­surer Mike Browne are look­ing for­ward to de­vel­op­ing the fa­cil­i­ties of the Tonker Park Race­way.
