Motorkhana is where it starts for many, a great way of learning car control and having a bunch of while while at it. Motorkhana is a low entry cost event, just run whatever car you like. Competitive people often opt for a small front wheel drive car, think corolla, pulsar, civic etc, or the more stylistic have plenty of fun in a rear wheel drive and send that dirt flying. It doesnt matter in the end, its almost a guarantee to have a heap of fun.
Autocross can be done on many surfaces – gravel, grass, tarmac, but we have a pretty sweet limestone track at our clubrooms in Bridge Pa. The limestone provides a huge variation, it can be hard and grippy like tarmac, or skiddy and slippery depending the conditions.
Autocross normally consists of a medium speed course with more corners than straights to keep it tight and interesting, this also makes it great for lower power cars. You can bring almost anything along and have a great day out.
Autocross fits into a Clubsport Basic category event, so it doesn’t have too many strings attached, but see below for a couple.
The 1/4 mile, 1320 feet or 402.3m sprint. Its a long standing reference for how fast your car is, so come along and get some numbers.
Our 1/4 mile sprints are always a good day out, low key and enjoyable, lots of chatting and interesting cars. Everyone is there for fun.
These events fall under ClubSport Basic so regulations are manageable for everyone
So you like to go fast do you?
The Hawke’s Bay as some primo roads around, and we are fortunate to be able to use some of these for our sealed sprints, or sometimes called Hill climbs. These are normally up to about 5km in length with a mixture of twisty bits and open straights. Every event is different!
Sealed sprints fall into the ClubSport Advanced so there are a few more rules so have a good read up on them and don’t hesitate to reach out for some assistance if you are new.

Gravel roads are a hoot, and we have some brilliant ones. Tangoio Settlement, Mokamoka to name a couple. Get amongst the action. Gravel sprints are an excellent feeder category for competitors wanting to get into rally.
Due to the extra speed and risk these events fall under a ClubSport Advanced category and have a couple extra safety requirements
