Fi­nal club meet for year

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

The Dou­glas Mo­tor Sports As­so­ci­a­tion held it’s fi­nal club meet for the year.

Ju­nior Mo­torkhana win­ners for the day were Cain Perry (first), Seth Perry (sec­ond) and Am­ber Yen­dle (third).

The Khanacross champ of the day was Chris Wieden, fin­ish­ing the 11 runs the quick­est, in his mod­i­fied Nis­san Pa­trol.

Over­all run­ner-up was 2017 club cham­pion 16-year-old Heath Barry, who also took out first place in the Ju­nior Khanacross.

Heath shows a tremen­dous amount of tal­ent on the track and he said his wheels are pointed in the di­rec­tion of a ca­reer in ral­ly­ing.

“I’m try­ing to pur­sue it, I’ve just got a new car so hope­fully I can do some big­ger,” Heath said.

“It’s good fun and it’s some­thing dif­fer­ent, there’s a good so­cial as­pect and ev­ery­one gets to­gether.

“I never get ner­vous, I get an adrenaline rush.

“You just go for it and hold on.”

Heath has al­ready par­tic­i­pated in Targa GBR this year, as a nav­i­ga­tor for Shane Buchanan.

The club will to kick back into gear next year on the Aus­tralia Day pub­lic hol­i­day, on Jan­uary 28.
