Speedsters take to the track

CENTRAL Coast Car Club members went helter skelter at the inaugural Street Sprint held at Rockhampton at the weekend.

Eleven members competed in the sprints, which were part of the Camco Group CQ MotorMania, and there were some exceptional times posted.

Two members, Keith Honour and Matty Dicks, registered places in their classes.

Honour grabbed first place in the Class L Unregistered 3001-4000cc in his Nissan Skyline R32 and Dicks finished second in the same class in his Holden Commodore.

Other members who took part in the Street Sprint were Chris Bevington in a Ford Escort, Rick Dicks in a Toyota Corona, Les Schofield behind the wheel of a Datsun 1600, Ted O’Brien driving a Mazda 323, Steve Bell in a Ford Escort, Pat Dilger in a Mazda RX7, Dave Bevington in a Holden Gemini and Mick Anderson in a Ford Escort.

Honour was accepted into the CQ MotorMania Hall of Fame, along with Dicks, and they were chosen as the CQ senior and junior local legends of the year.

This announcement was made at the Legends Dinner at the Champions Brock Experience.

In Central Coast Car Club news, the next Motorkhana will be on August 28.
