For our last event of the year, we have a Motorkhana at Pipeline Park, Ferrers Road Eastern Creek on Saturday the 23rd November 2019, and online entries are now open for this event.
The grounds are on Ferrers Road, just past the second entrance to the dragway. If coming south on Ferrers Road pass the usual gate to get to the skidpan and past the next dragway entrance. The new grounds are about 200-300m past this on the right-hand side on the outside of the next sweeping left hand corner, the gate is at the end of the guardrail. We will have banners on the gated entrance on the day. The safest way to turn into the grounds is probably to drive past the grounds to the next roundabout and come back up the road, so you don’t have to turn across oncoming traffic.
We would also love to know if you can help out by being an official on the day, please let us know via email – firstname.lastname@example.org, in order that we can ensure we have sufficient officials for the event.
This is a Come and Try event, so if you have a friend or family member who wants to have a go, but doesn’t have a CAMS licence this is their chance!

Details for entering online:
So, just how do you enter through the CAMS Online Event Entry system?
This system will hopefully streamline the current admin in administering an event, especially in reducing the waiting time to enter, and the handling of cash and credit cards prior to the event start.
If all runs well you will simply attend the admin desk to be marked off the list, and receive your numbers and scrutineering form. Lunch orders (where applicable) will be handled separately and paid for separately.
Please note: We are unable to accommodate multiple driver entries at this stage. Each entrant will need to log on individually and enter the event. This may well change further down the track.

Imagine taking your road car on to a slippery surface and negotiating tight courses set out by rubber cones and coloured flags. A motorkhana is where you improve your car handling skills…have a lot of fun for not a lot of money…and earn competition points towards club trophies.
Christian Autosports Club of Australia (CACA) runs a motorkhana series split into skid pan (flooded concrete surface, as below) and grass events (as above). We use the Sydney Motorsport Park skid pan at Eastern Creek and Ansell Park adjacent to the RAAF base at Richmond. Both venues induce different car behaviour. The skills you gain here are very beneficial for when driving on public roads with a loose surface, lack of grip or a lot of water.
Motorkhanas are divided into categories for everyday passenger vehicles and modified (unregistered) vehicles. At any one of our events, you are likely to see Mazda 3’s, Corollas, Civics, Mirages, Subarus, Toyota 86’s, V8 Commodores and Falcons, EVO Lancers and turbo Nissans, as well as purpose-built race cars. Points are awarded for negotiating the courses in the shortest possible time without hitting the cones and flags.
Children from 12 years of age are eligible to enter (with parental permission) and we have found motorkhanas to be ideal for teaching the right skills and building confidence in learner drivers. CACA has a number of highly experienced motorsport racing drivers who are available to sit with junior members and provide instruction.
Don’t worry, you won’t damage your vehicle. The worst that could happen is driving over a cone – and they bounce back into shape!
Motorkhanas are divided into open events, closed events and training. Open events are for members of Christian Autosports Club of Australia and other CAMS-affiliated clubs. Closed events are solely for the benefit of CACA members. Training includes a practice day, driver training for the public or promotional activity (as when CACA staged a launch day for the NSW Rally Championship).
Motorkhanas are inexpensive events. Registration is $50 for adults and $25 for juniors for the day plus the cost of a CAMS licence (refer to CAMS Licence).
