An epic week­end to roar on in

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club will host a mam­moth week­end on Satur­day and Sun­day and en­cour­ages ev­ery­one to come along.

It all starts Satur­day morn­ing from 9am with iDRIVE, the club’s ju­nior driv­ing train­ing course at the carpark of the Whit­sun­day PCYC and Sportspark in Ju­bilee Pocket.

Open to be­gin­ner driv­ers from ages 12 and up, this is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to let your fu­ture rev head fi­nally get amongst it in a safe en­vi­ron­ment.

CQUniver­sity has thrown its sup­port be­hind iDRIVE, with the club al­ready host­ing sev­eral cour­ses in Mackay and more planned.

With a pro­gram struc­tured around the ba­sic dis­ci­pline of Mo­torkhana, its main goal is to en­gage new ju­nior mo­tor sport par­tic­i­pants (12-18 year olds) by de­vel­op­ing their driv­ing skills to a level where they can con­fi­dently com­pete in club level mo­tor sport events.

“Mo­torkhanas are a great in­tro­duc­tion to mo­tor sport, test­ing a par­tic­i­pant’s ac­cel­er­a­tion, brak­ing and ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity skills in a va­ri­ety of small tests marked out by witches’ hats,” said 2015 iDRIVE co-or­di­na­tor Mark Horder.

Then from 1pm wit­ness a mo­torkhana chal­lenge in the same carpark, with regis­tra­tions still open or watch for free.

On Sun­day head out to Tonker Park (on the way to the air­port) for a dirt khanacross.

Scru­ti­neer­ing starts at 8am with rac­ing at 9am.

BIG WEEK­END: The Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club is where the ac­tion is at.
