TCAC open up Queensland events

Thursday 18 June, 2020
Queensland will hold its first club motorsport event since COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, with the Townsville City Autosports Club (TCAC) running the second round of its Khanacross Series.
 
Taking place at the Millchester Motorsport Complex, the Charters Towers based club will have 20 competitors complete between four and six tests during the event on multiple tracks.
 
While the club has limited its entries to 20 to meet local restrictions, there could be a late capacity change to 50 ahead of the event, pending any announcements by the State Government.
 
For the club’s Geoff Nicol, there has been a rise in interest for the khanacross from all around the state, which has been both a good and bad thing.
 
“Everybody seems to be looking forward to it,” Nicol said.
 
“We have even had people from Cairns and MacKay express their interest to come up for the event, but due to the limitation, we had to tell them they could be knocked back.
 
“With everything changing daily, there is a potential for us to have 50 competitors, and if we are allowed to have 50 then we will it open it up to all those people outside.
 
“It’s been a long time since everyone has been racing and they just want to get back into it, so it’s nice to know we’re one of the first events in Queensland to host an event since restrictions were lifted.
 
“We have been trying hard to make sure we have our ‘i’s’ dotted and our ‘t’s’ crossed so everything is right for the competitors.”
 
The club’s preparation has been in line with both the government requirements and the Motorsport Australia Return to Race strategy.
 
From electronic notices in the lead up, to multiple sanitation stations around the complex and the implementation of social distancing, the club is just one of many around the country to incorporate safety measures to make sure they can safely go ahead.
 
A big positive for the club is that the Millchester Motorsport Complex is a large facility, which features a number of tracks, allowing the club to be flexible. 
 
“We have four tracks that I have picked for the weekend which should enable us to move around the weekend,” Nicol added.
 
“We will see how will go time-wise and how many we actually use, and we will run most likely in forward and reverse directions and then we will change to another track.
 
“It allows us to mix and match them as we want over the weekend.”
 
The second round of the Townsville City Autosports Club Khanacross Series takes place at Millchester Motorsport Complex on 20-21 June.
