PRESIDENT: “Motorkhanas are a great way to start in motorsport”
MOTORSPORT: In what will be an exciting year at Gladstone’s Central Coast Car Club, juniors and women are being encouraged to take part in the club’s motorkhana Come and Try Day at the Benaraby Training Centre, off Jono Porter Drive, on Sunday.
Club president Keith Honour said it would be a day full of information for newcomers to the sport.
“There will be cars available on the day and experienced guidance from our car club members,” he said.
“It will be a fun day to introduce newcomers into our club activities and meet the teams behind our existing events.”
YOUNG AND OLD
Entry is $20, to help cover Motorsport Australia’s costs, and juniors must be 12 years or older and able to demonstrate they can drive and control a vehicle safely.
“Young ladies and the not so young are also encouraged to come and try this grass-roots motorsport event,” Honour said.
“Motorkhanas are a great way to start in motorsport ... they are a test of driving skill and car control around a set course in a controlled environment.”
Passenger rides with skilled drivers will be available and the day includes driver demonstrations.
The activities start at 9am with car scrutineering before a 10am briefing.
A sausage sizzle and cold drinks will be available on the day.
