Tar­mac and Dirt rac­ing champs this week­end

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club will host the fi­nal round of the Tar­mac and Dirt Cham­pi­onships this week­end.

The two-day event will see driv­ers tackle both types of ter­rain, rac­ing around Tonker Park on Satur­day be­fore re­turn­ing on Sun­day for a date with the Whit­sun­day Race­way.

The cham­pi­onships are one of the big­gest events in the club’s cal­en­dar, and sec­re­tary Kym Hall is ex­pect­ing plenty of support.

“It’s cer­tainly one of our ma­jor races,” she said.

“It’s the fourth and fi­nal round [of the cham­pi­onships] so we’re at the nitty gritty part now. We’re look­ing at about 30 [driv­ers] for the week­end.”

The quick­est lap of the day in each cat­e­gory will win over­all and a va­ri­ety of ve­hi­cles are set to take part – mak­ing it a must see for any car enthusiast.

“We range for any­thing from a Lo­tus to mini club­man, Hyundai Ex­cels to V8 Fal­cons or Com­modores and lit­tle Lasers... there’s a wide va­ri­ety of cars,” Hall said.

Camp­ing is avail­able for the week­end while din­ner and break­fast costs $5 each.

Drinks are avail­able on both days while lunch is BYO.

Reg­is­tra­tions are avail­able on the day.
