GALLERY: Final round likely to light up next month
MOTORSPORT: Thirty-two drivers participated in the 2-Day Khanacross held at the Benaraby Motorsport Complex on the weekend, where sights are now set on a twilight event mid next month.
The dirt-track format was taken out by overall winner Peter Bugeja from Hervey Bay while Gladstone drivers Jamie Overend, Brent Taylor and Mark Boyd took out one, two and three on the podium in the Class C category.
Overend, who is also the Central Coast Car Club Gladstone secretary, said almost everything went to plan across the two days.
"The track's held up really well with perfect weather conditions and the competitors have really loved the track layout,” he said.
"We had a really good cross-section of vehicles with off-road, side-by-side, prepared rally cars and we even had speedway cars coming down from Rocky. There has been a really good variety of cars contesting and really close times too at the top end of the fields.”
Points were accumulated throughout the two-day fixture, but the overall champions will not be decided until after the final round next month.
"Some of the guys have used this as a bit of a warm-up for that to finish off the series for those guys who are eligible,” Overend said.
"It's going to be an afternoon and evening run, so the guys are going to need some headlights sorted. It will be something a little bit different to finish off the series.”
The twilight final round is likely to be scheduled on the weekend of October 13-14.
