Motorkhana is a fabulous low cost form of motor sport, often providing someone with their first taste of motor sport in their standard road car, but also catering to the most skilled and experienced of drivers in highly modified or purpose built Motorkhana specials.

Khanacross is like a giant motorkhana conducted primarily on unsealed surfaces. Similar as a test of driving skills to motorkhanas, but on a course up to 1.5km’s long, khanacross is a great opportunity to learn car control at slightly higher speeds. Khanacross can be enjoyed in everything from a standard road car through to purpose built specials.

Observed Section Trials
Observed Section Trials were introduced to Australia from England in 1950 by the late John Pryce and have since been conducted regularly by the Austin 7 Club Inc. Trials cars are built to a specific formula.
Observed Section Trials involve the cars traversing marked sections (the number depending only on the time available) of muddy or slippery surfaces, steep, or otherwise difficult terrain. The purpose of each Competitor is to traverse the whole of each section non-stop from a standing start, without departing from the marked course or hitting any of the markers en route. Sections, which may vary in length from 25m to 100m or more, are each divided into 10 parts, each marked by opposite pairs of pegs or markers.
