Big Numbers For Clubsport Championship

The Southland Sports Car Club’s Evolution Motorsport Clubsport Championship got underway at Teretonga Park on Sunday with excellent numbers contesting both the Motorkhana and Autocross events.

A record number of forty-six entries tackled the three motorkhana tests in the morning with the youngest competitor 12 year old Euan Bergius. Stacy Lines took the Motorkhana victory for this first round in his Mini followed by Jeremy Lennon in a Toyota Starlet and Liam MacDonald (Nissan NX Coupe). Fourteen of the competitors were making their debut in the sport. Several drivers shared cars including four who drove the Evolution Motorsport Toyota which is available for drivers to use while Todd Blackmun made his Ford Ka available.

Andrew Lawrie won the Autocross in the afternoon in his EVO from Craig Allan (Nissan 180sx) and Liam MacDonald (Nissan NX Coupe). Loren MacKay in a Honda Civic was the fastest lady while 13 year old Taylor Gray was the youngest competitor and Ben Kelly was adjudged to have had the most spectacular moment of the day. Steven Watson was selected for a prize at the post event prizegiving by way of lucky draw. The Autocross boasted thirty-one entries.
