MOTORSPORT: Central Coast Car Club president Keith Honour said the more new members the merrier following the success of the second round of the Khanacross Series held yesterday.

Honour said the sport was gaining momentum.

"Events like this help us to increase membership and it's where the passengers say that they like it and so they join up and so on," he said.

"We have currently got 37 paid-up members and we had two new members join up yesterday.

"We had three who had day licences and they may join up as well."

Honour said the way yesterday's event was run would only encourage growth in the sport.

In ideal weather, it was a father and son who won their respective divisions.

"Nicholas Donohoe was first in the Juniors in (a) Hyundai Excel and his dad John was also first in the C-grade in his Datsun 1600," Honour said.

Donohoe eclipsed Mark Boyd by seven seconds.

Sam McPherson was first in the E-class in his EL Falcon.

Peter Bugeja won the Buggy category.

The B-class winner was Lawson Boyd.

"Russell Mason won the 4WD class and was outright first and he put on a good show as a warm-up for an event next week," Honour said.

There were 14 entries, with 11 finishing the race.

"The 1km circuit held up really well and all credit must go to those who prepared it," Honour said. "The past two or three weekends were spent filling holes and washouts caused by Cyclone Debbie."

Honour said he welcomed anyone to meetings held on the first Wednesday of each month at Calliope Central Bowls Club at 7pm.
