Drivers pushed to the limit at Khanacross
MORE than 30 drivers geared up for two days of highly competitive racing at the Mixed Title Khanacross Championship on the weekend.
A wide range of vehicles sold on the domestic automotive market registered for the event which was hosted by the Whitsunday Sporting Car Club.
Drivers had the choice of competing in the tarmac, dirt or combined event.
Racing kicked off on the technical bitumen track of the Whitsunday Raceway on Saturday, before drivers faced off on the dirt track of the Tonker Park Raceway on Sunday.
It was family affair in the Mixed Title Khanacross Championship with Whitsunday Sporting Car Club president Warren Morton taking out first place on 28 points ahead of his son Wayne Morton on 26 points, with Anthony Matson rounding out the podium in third place on 25 points.
Drivers competing in the tarmac event on Saturday made the most of the near perfect racing conditions which saw Finn Hansen claim a podium finish in first place, followed by Mike Browne in second and Kym Hall, who claimed victory in the women’s division, finished in third place.
Those returning to the track on Sunday sent mud flying in all directions as they battled it out on the waterlogged dirk track.
Warren Morton produced the fastest lap times ahead of his son Jody Morton in second and Anthony Matson, who also found victory as the fastest junior, in third.
The Whitsunday Sporting Car Club will be hosting a dirt track Khanacross at the Tonker Park Raceway on Sunday, April 13.
