What is a Motorkhana: A timed driver skill competition – there are usually 6 tests of up to 200m in length defined by cones and starting and finishing garages. There are maps provided showing the direction of travel and the course to be followed around each cone and the objective is to do the course in the correct direction without incurring a penalty (such as 5 seconds for hitting a cone or leaving the sealed surface) in the fastest time.
Run in a safe environment on the Ruapuna Track or one of our grassed areas these events are a challenge to even the most experienced. To drive a course around up to 24 cones in an area no larger than 200m x200m (often less) as quickly and carefully as possible means sliding the car, using the handbrake to turn and controlling acceleration to be as neat but as fast as possible and avoid hitting those pesky 5 seconds time penalty cones.
