Clubsport to Get Underway

Entry level motorsport is booming in the south and the Southland Sports Car Club hosts its first event of the new season – the Evolution Motorsport ClubSport Triathlon at Teretonga Park in Invercargill on Sunday 26 July.

This is a non-championship event which replaces the traditional end of season Triathlon postponed due to Covid-19 in April.

The Triathlon features motorkhana and autocross with motorkhana the perfect place to have a go at entry level motorsport. Motorkhana competitors will tackle a single car ¼ mile sprint, motorkhana challenges on grass and seal and another sprint. A helmet is required for the sprint but the club can provide these.

Southland Sports Car Club ClubSport co-ordinator Malcolm Mitchell says, “it is the perfect time for anyone interested in cars and motorsport to give a motorkhana event a go. We have so many recent newcomers to the sport at the moment that you will have plenty of others taking their first steps in the sport to compete against.

Entries for the motorkhana and ¼ mile sprint will be taken from 8.30am on the morning of the event ($25 per driver) and action should get underway at 9.30am. Anyone 12 years old and over can have a go in any car of WOF standard or else use one of two cars available for an extra cost of $20.

The club is also encouraging workplace challenges this season – anyone can challenge workmates or someone from another business to contest these events to grab bragging rights either in their own car or one that is available to use on the day.

Don’t hesitate to contact the club for any information on ClubSport or about utilising one of the cars available for the event via the Southland Sports Car Club Clubsport Co-ordinator Malcolm Mitchell at 021 666 956 or [email protected]

Spectators are welcome to come and view the action and find out more about ClubSport. Admission is free.
