Khanacross will test driver skills at Benaraby Raceway

DRIVERS have the chance to put their driving skills to the test at the bitumen Khanacross this Sunday at the end of the drag strip.

The Central Coast Car Club will be hosting the event courtesy by permission from Benaraby Raceway.

Event co-ordinator Keith Honour said the format will pose varying challenges for drivers over different classes including beginners.

"We have a come and try component if you wish to come and have a bit of a go around our course and please note that registered cars must have proof of a third party extension before being allowed to compete," Honour said.

The come and try will cost $85 for a day licence plus event entry which is $40.

"Competitors need to be there by 8am for scrutineering and the event will start at 9am and finish approximately 3pm," Honour added.

"Tests will be set out on the bitumen track and drivers will be following directions off a test sheet and will be working against the clock in different classes."

The Khanacross offers different grading for the drivers and Honour said that inexperienced drivers will be classed as C-grade, then B-grade and A-grade caters for the more experienced drivers.

There will also be a class for juniors between the ages of 12 to 16 years.

Honour added that it is compulsory to wear helmets and seat belts while competing and stressed that registered cars must have third party extension for insurance reasons, otherwise drivers will not be able to compete.

"There will be trophies for all classes," Honour said.

Khanacross is a good test of a driver's ability and skill to handle their cars in testing conditions. Penalties apply for dislodging cones and taking the wrong direction.

"Fast times and no penalties equals winners, so please come and give it ago," Honour said.
