Twilight Khanacross meet proves popular

MOTORSPORTS: It was touch and go right until race day but Round 4 of the Central Coast Car Club's Khanacross series went ahead despite the weekend's inclement weather.

A decision on the two-day event was made at 7am Saturday with the twilight meet - the first of its kind - beginning from 3pm at the Benaraby Motorsports Complex.

CCCC event director Jamie Overend said the track held up really well despite copping some rain the night before.

"The track was very well prepared and shed a lot of water," Overend said.

"A damp track is probably ideal where you get the most traction."

Overend said the twilight meet was to gauge its popularity.

"It makes for a different experience driving on the track at night versus the day - it's sometimes hard to see the corners coming up on you," he said.

"We certainly saw our times at night were slower as drivers took more care.

"We had four runs before dark and round 6.30pm we did our two night runs."

Overend said driver feedback from the twilight meet was very positive and they'll look at it again next year.
