Crowhurst dominates motorkhana event
FORMER Mr Motorkhana champion Bill Crowhurst blasted his way around the tight and twisting tests to secure outright victory at the recent Central Coast Car Club Motorkhana at the Kin Kora Kmart car park.
Crowhurst pushed his Datsun 1600 around the course in 3min32.77sec to secure the overall win along with the class C honours in an event which doubled as round four of the 2005 K & S Sheetmetal Motorkhana Series.
Seventeen competitors lined up for the event which was reported to have drawn a crowd of more than 200 spectators. Terry Boardman showed he was no slouch in his Toyota Corolla taking second place outright and in class C in 3:36.39.
Completing the class C domination was Keith Honour who finished third in both categories in his Datsun 1600 in 3:46.05.
The surprise packet for the event was ex-Kiwi driver Will Fisher in the Hollie Bimrose-owned Suzuki Mighty Boy.
Fisher set times comparable with the class C competitors, taking out first place in the class A/B competition and fifth outright in 4:12.88, edging out Craig Delaney, in the club's Holden Gemini, who finished in 4:31.21.
Bimrose also showed good form in the Mighty Boy, storming home in 4:49.68 to take the junior class honours and finish 11th outright.
She was followed in the junior ranks by Aaron Crowhurst, in his father Bill's Datsun, who crossed the line in 5:07.11 ahead of Mathew Dicks who was third in junior class and 14th outright in a Toyota Corona.
Lacey Bimrose was the highest-placed senior female driver, guiding her Alfa Romeo GTV into ninth place in class C and 12th overall in 4:51.68.
The club also welcomed new member Chris Woodward who, in his first attempt at motorkhana competition, took the club Gemini into fifth spot in the junior class and 17th overall in 5:42.05.
