Round 3 NSW State Motorkhana is not a State Round now

Saturday, 30th April – Sunday, 1st May 2016

NSW State Motorkhana

Round 3 of the NSW Motorkhana Championship has been downgraded to a Multi Club and will be conducted on Sunday 1st May.
This event was due to be held over the 2 days of 30th April / 1st May in Armidale by New England Sporting Car Club.
The local council has insisted the concrete skidpan venue must be wet down at all times during the running of any motorkhana to reduce tyre noise.
The motorkhana panel was originally hoping the council would lift water restrictions for a state championship round but this request has failed.
Unfortunately a wet concrete skidpan is unsuitable for motorkhana specials which are the vehicles vying for the championship.
I hope this does not cause any problems with the necessary changes that need to place.

Round 3 of the NSW State Motorkhana Championship which will be held at Armidale. Run by New England Sporting Car Club, contact Clerk of Course, Richard Opie on 0418 668 174 for further information. **Note: This is a two day event with Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
