Update 23rd July 2018

This motorkhana is now fully subscribed and entries have been closed.

If you missed out you can consider entering the NSW Motorkhana at Nirimba on 12th August. More information is available here.


Update 19th June 2018.
Entries for the Club motorkhana on the 28th July are now open!

Note that with just one Club motorkhana this year, we won't be having a championship (i.e. no trophies), so this motorkhana is just for the glory of it all...

On a related note, whilst the motorkhana on the 12 August is being run by the MX-5 Club (and Club members can certainly compete), it is a round of the NSW Motorkhana Championship - it is not a Club motorkhana, in the same way the our round of the NSW supersprint Championship is not part of out Club Championship. Also, being on a dry surface at Nirimba, it wouldn't be fair to include this in a Club motorkhana championship, since some Club members would not be keen competing on that surface.

So, just to clarify - there are two motorkhanas - the Club one on the 28th July, and the NSW State motorkhana on the 12th August - both run by us.


This motorkhana day is intended to cater for drivers who are inexperienced in car control and to provide them with a fun set of motorkhana style challenges to test and develop their skills, as well as offering some tricky bits for more experienced drivers. It is the only Club motorkhana at the SMSP Skidpan in 2018.

The motorkhana is being held at the Sydney Motor Sport Park skidpan. This is a large flat concrete area which provides plenty of space for any mistakes, and the surface will be watered through the day to provide a low grip surface and so minimise wear and tear on cars and tyres.

A number of experienced club members will be on hand to provide one-on-one support to the participants.

As this event will be run under a CAMS permit, club members will need to hold a CAMS L2NS, L2S or better license, or apply for a one-day CAMS L1 license. The L1 license is available to those who have not previously held a CAMS license, including an L1.
