Khanacross Round 4

August 14, 2016

Sunday the 14th of August seen the running of Round 4 of the Khanacross series, entries were a little light with only 13 competing on the day. The challenge was to mix it up a little and try and get a set of different outright winners. Each of the tests were designed to suit a drive configuration with trying to achieve a level playing field. And it worked somewhat with 3 out of the top 5 being RWD. I am pretty sure all the single spinners will be replacing at least 1 tyre before the next round. The three tests were ran on the bomber and drag strip.

Class A was taken out by Darren Watkins in his trusty Corolla, the hotly contested class B was won by Robert Love a Doughnut Dekker in the ever sliding Silvia from Paul Gladman. Andrew Bayley took out class C in the tyre smoking Corolla...

Ballarat motorsport mecca touted to replace metro circuit

July 7, 2016

Australia’s leading motor sport body is lobbying for a premium car racing circuit to be built in Ballarat to replace the soon to be defunct Sandown Racetrack. 

Confederation of Australian Motor Sport chief executive Eugene Arocca has revealed Ballarat’s highly anticipated $50 million motor sport complex was CAMS’s preferred location for a new V8 track.

He estimated a single V8 weekend event could pump between $15 and $20 million into Ballarat’s economy.

“We’d consider moving CAMS’s headquarters (currently in Melbourne) up to Ballarat that’s how committed we are,” Mr Arocca said.

“We’re working against the clock to get a track established in the next two years.”

It followed news the Sandown Park’s racecourse and horse track in Springvale may be up for residentia...
