MOTORSPORTS: Junior drivers were offered a taste of motorkhana on Sunday when the Central Coast Car Club hosted a come and try day at Benaraby Raceway.

The event was aimed at encouraging juniors to learn car control and have some safe and friendly fun in the process.

Motorkhana is a low-cost form of motorsport unique to Australia and New Zealand and involves manoeuvring a car through tight tests as quickly as possible on either dirt or bitumen surfaces.

Event secretary Keith Honour said the club was a little disappointed with the turnout but it meant more time behind the wheel for attending drivers.

"It turned out to be a very successful day,” he said.

"CCCC aims to promote grassroots motorsport and motorkhana is at the entry level, so we like as many participants as we can.”
