Regards The Organising Committee 2019 CAMS M.I.D.Support Australian Khanacross Championship
Westlakes Automobile Club Inc (WAC), based near Newcastle just north of the NSW central coast, have put their hand up to run this year’s round of the Australian Khanacross Championship (AKC). The event will be run over the weekend of the 21st and 22nd September.
The AKC became part of the CAMS Australian Championship stable back in 2013 and has been hotly contested over the past years with South Australia, Victoria, and Queensland all holding a round of the Championship.
WAC last attempted to run a round of the AKC back in 2015 however mother nature cruelly denied their efforts, not once but twice when the initial event and the rescheduled event were both washed out at the eleventh hour.
This year WAC is determined more than ever to hold a successful event with plans of providing weatherproof venues. As a new feature of the event, competition will be contested on both tarmac and dirt surfaces with possible tyre restrictions in place. The organisers hope that including a tarmac venue will ‘weatherproof’ the event.
With the introduction of a multi-surface event, the organisers hope that the event will attract a diverse field of entrants and vehicles. The event will be open to any member of a CAMS affiliated car club who also holds a minimum of a Level 2 Non-Speed or Level 2 Non-Speed Junior Licence.
