Motorkhana is the ideal introduction to motorsport as it is conducted at low speed (typically 1st gear), with no requirement for helmets, and with lots of help and support.

The Mazda MX-5 Club of NSW arranges club motorkhanas at Sydney Motorsport Park skidpan. Our motorkhana days are designed 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. We accept entries from drivers as young as 12 years under parental supervision - these events are a great option for kids learning to drive.

The Sydney Motorsport Park skidpan is a large flat concrete area which provides plenty of space for any mistakes, and the surface is watered throughout the day to ensure a low grip surface and so minimise wear and tear on cars and tyres.

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

In 2024, the MX-5 Club will host three club motorkhana events at the Sydney Motorsport Park skidpan and one on a dry tarmac surface at Nirimba TAFE in Quakers Hill in conjunction with a round of the NSW Motorkhana Championship.
