Collective effort for NSW Central North car club
Friday 12 February, 2021
Some club level motorsport events are named in honour of an individual who has had a big impact on the club, however for the Central North Coast Sporting Car Club (CNCSCC), this weekend’s motorkhana will pay tribute to a brand new part of the club.
Titled the Pit Fence Motorkhana and Khanacross, the event is named after the club’s newly built pit fence that was installed over the Christmas break which adds to the new look facilities created by the club.
With the new facilities now ready to go, the club has brought their first event for 2021 forward as they looked to accommodate a healthy field of entries taking part in both disciplines.
On Saturday, up to 17 competitors will complete a variety of tests during the motorkhana, while 29 are confirmed for the khanacross and take on three different course layouts.
Still reeling from the club’s huge turnout at their last event, club President Bill O’Grady was excited to get the club’s season of motorsport.
“With major restrictions hovering over our head still, we are one of the few clubs being able to host events with large camping facilities and room to accommodate,” O’Grady said.
“It forms part of our four round club championship we intend to hold this year, along with our 17 hosted events this year and we decided to shift our calendar forward while we still have the chance to get some events in.
“We’re confident the motorkhana will have lots of fun and exciting layouts where they will complete some circle work and hairpin turns – all of which will be lots of fun with the hand brake. The khanacross track layout will also offer some great technical and tight turns through the bush and should test the skills of our drivers.
“We had a huge turnout at the last event and we had plenty of positive feedback, so we’re really excited for this weekend.”
The Central North Coast Sporting Car Club’s Pit Fence Motorkhana and Khanacross takes place at the Nabiac Motorsport Complex on 13 February.
