22nd Nov 2015 Grass Autocross #4

It was a very dusty last event for the 2015 season at the Okuku autocross. We had been kindly donated the use of the awesome paddock which we used last in 2009. A huge field of 33 competitors lined up to have a skid on the grass, some were long-time, experienced members and others were having a go at driving a car for the very first time! Fun was had by all.

Congratulations to Chris Herdman who beat the field by a massive 11 seconds, leaving Jayden Tainui and Josh Mitchell behind in second and third respectively. Check out the full results below.

Reminder for Autocross events:

  • Anybody is welcome to join in (you don’t need to be a club member).
  • You’ll need a valid civil drivers license.
  • For $20 it’s incredibly cheap fun and great way to becoming a better driver on the road.
  • Bring your mates and find out who is the true, fastest driver among you.
  • Any car that has a WOF & Reg or Motorsport NZ logbook. Often small, automatic road cars are hard to beat!
  • You must have 100% cotton or approved flame proof overalls according to Motorsport NZ schedule A.
  • Motorsport NZ approved helmet. Read what that means in Schedule A of the Motorsport NZ Manual
