ClubSport Championship heads to Southland
The best exponents of ClubSport – grassroots level motorsport competition – will come south at the end of January to contest the MotorSport New Zealand ClubSport Championship at Teretonga Park in Invercargill. The championship will take place at the circuit over the weekend of Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 of January commencing with six Motorkhana tests on a sealed surface on the Saturday morning followed by a grass autocross that afternoon. Sunday will feature a bent sprint at the circuit.
Motorkhana’s are run on a tight course around cones against the clock, with each competitor being given three runs at each test. The discipline is great to help a driver develop precision car control.
Autocross events are speed events, typically 1-2 minutes in length, once again run against the clock. After an Indian File familiarisation run competitors get three timed runs with their fastest time counting.
Entries for the ClubSport Championship event are open now via MotorSport Online. Competitors with an M, C, R or International grade competition licence (ClubSport, Race, Rally) are eligible to contest the ClubSport Championship. Drivers from just 12-years of age, with a eligible licence and guardian consent, are able to contest this national championship status event.
