ABOUT THE TESTS
Motorkhanas are focused on driver skill and ability. Courses are low speed and marked by flags. Entrants are timed across the course, and are penalised for striking flags, going in the wrong direction, or failing to stop.
HSCCQ Motorkhanas are conducted on suitable bitumen surfaces.
Khanacross run over longer distances, at higher speed compared to Motorkhana. The courses are all in a forward direction, through combinations of fast straights, open corners, and tight turns.
Successful drivers develop high speed car control skills.
Drivers can participate from age 12, and in car tutorage is permitted in some courses. As skills and speed develop, drivers become safely exposed to potentially hazardous conditions such as understeer, oversteer and locked brakes, and learn how to recognise and manage these situations.
