Club driv­ers get down­right dirty

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE Whit­sun­day Sport­ing Car Club got down and dirty on Sun­day, con­clud­ing what was a win­ning week­end for the club.

The Sport­ing Car Club hosted pop­u­lar events on both days of the week­end but it was the dirt ses­sion that made the driv­ers as happy as pigs in mud.

Tonker Park hosted Sun­day’s dirt khanacross, which saw Tas Tay­lor claim over­all vic­tory.

The lo­cal driver con­quered the course in a time of 10.41.27, fin­ish­ing clear of run­ner-up Kym Hall on 11.00.29.

Lo­cal Wayne Udy rounded out the top three with his 11.06.17 ef­fort.

In other re­sults on the ac­tion-packed day, Kym Hall won the un­der-1600CC di­vi­sion from Jody Mor­ton and Lance Mel­rose.

Wayne Udy tri­umphed in the 1600–2000CC class, top­ping Tim Hall and Ian Sens­berg.

The over-2000CC re­sulted in another win for Tas Tay­lor, who got the bet­ter of Chris Lewis and Adam Phillips.

Kym Hall posted another win in the ladies’ class, while Kay Lewis and Deb Mel­rose rounded out the podium.

Jody Mor­ton was the best of the ju­nior com­peti­tors, show­ing her class in the dirt to fin­ish ahead of Ryan Horder and David Bai­ley.

In other news, the club is host­ing a work­ing bee at Tonker Park on Sun­day.

The com­mit­tee is seek­ing help with main­te­nance work at the track.
