Events We Run

Nabiac Motorsport Complex is also home to the many forms of motorsport we offer.

Our members have the opportunity to compete in Motorkhana, Khanacross, Autocross, Rallysprint and Off Road events all at the one venue. 

Motorkhana

A Motorkhana is an 'Auto Test' event and a great low cost form of motor sport, often providing someone with their first taste of motorsport in their standard road car, but also catering to the most skilled and experienced of drivers. 

Motorkhanas provide an excellent opportunity for young drivers to learn car control with the competition designed to test the acceleration, braking and general maneuverability of a vehicle, and also the skill and judgement of the driver.

Our Motorkhanas are held on a gravel surface where drivers compete one at a time following a course marked with witches hats and flags.  Hitting flags or going in the wrong direction incurs penalties.

Vehicles usually complete the course in first gear.

Competitors require a minimum Level 2NS Licence and can take part from 12 years of age.

Khanacross

A Khanacross is also an 'Auto Test' event and the next step up from a Motorkhana, and in essence, a longer version of a Motorkhana where higher speeds are reached.

Our Khanacross are also held on a gravel surface following the same principals, course markers and penalties as a Motorhana.

A Khanacross course is typically more open and free flowing than a Motorkhana course.

Competitors require a Level 2NS Licence and can take part from 12 years of age.  Drivers 12 and 13 years of age must be accompanied by an experienced instructor who holds a minimum Level 2S Licence.

Autocross

An Autocross is a 'speed' event and therefore the next step up from a Khanacross where higher speeds are reached incorporating timed laps around our 1km gravel circuit.

We have the only licensed Autocross track in NSW. 

Competitors have up to six (6) laps around the Autocross track (depending on competitor numbers) with two cars are on the track at the same time, spaced 40 plus seconds apart.

Competitors require a Level 2S Licence and can take part from 14 years of age.

Rallysprint

Our Rallysprint events are held on a purpose built course of approximately 4.2 km of gravel.

Drivers and co-drivers navigate their way through tight and twisty corners contested in both directions with each direction being run three times. Competitors start at intervals of no less than one (1) minute apart.

Rallysprint Events are separated into two levels:

S1 Events - Introductory level.  Competitors require a Level 2S Licence.

S2 Events - State level events.  Competitors require a Clubman Rally Licence.

JUNIOR DRIVERS 16-17 YEARS OF AGE must have competed in four (4) Autocross events prior to competing in an S1 Rallysprint.

Junior Drivers MUST have a Co-Driver who holds a current Motorsport Australia Competition Licence and is over 18 years of age.

CO-DRIVERS can compete at the age of 14.

Rally

Rally is one of the most unique forms of motorsport in the world. Comprising of a driver and a co-driver/navigator to read the course, it is a battle between driver, machine and the clock.

Rally events are usually conducted on closed forest roads including all kinds of road surfaces and speeds with events split between competitive and transport stages where the driver is instructed through the course by a navigator.

Transport stages are used to get the car from one competitive stage to the next with service stops that allow for refueling and repairs.

Scrutineering requirements are a lot more involved than in lower level motorsport events.

Rally and Road events can range from a club event, through to the Australian Targa and Australian Rally Championships, and beyond in the FIA World Rally Championship.

Competitors require a Clubman Level Licence with licences required for both Drivers or Navigators.

Depending on the level of competition, participants can take up rallying from age 14.

Off Road

Also one of the most unique forms of motorsport in the world, Off-Road Racing is a format of racing where various classes of specially modified vehicles including cars, sxs’s and buggies compete in timed events through off-road environments on defined tracks in desert or bush areas.

Because the nature of off road events emphasises negotiation of difficult terrain, including contrived and natural obstacles and difficulties, the emphasis is on vehicle and driver ability rather than on outright vehicle speed.

Competing vehicles are some of the most impressively engineered in Australian Motor Sport and most incorporate long travel suspension systems and powerful engines to enable them to negotiate the rugged, dusty, sandy and sometimes muddy terrain they encounter as fast as possible.

During scrutineering all competing vehicles must undergo a detailed examination for safety before taking any part in the competition, including any practice or prologue, and no vehicle may compete without the approval of the Chief Scrutineer.

The minimum age for participation in off road events below State Championship is commonly:

Driver 14, Co-driver 14 and Navigator 12.

At State Championship and higher is commonly: Driver 16, Co-driver 16 and Navigator 14 with International events at the discretion of Motorsport Australia.
