    UTV and Polaris Come & Try Khanacross a Success! 

    Polaris RZR S, RZR and XP at Snake Racing Come Try Twilight Khanacross

    G Class gets racing as UTV owners take on the Twilight Tracks!

    UTV owners from across NSW took up the invite to rally as part of the Snake Racing UTV Come & Try Day and Westlakes Twilight Khanacross on September 3rd. 10 eager G Class drivers competed in Polaris RZR, RZR S and the new, higher horse-power XP model vehicles.


    CAMS UTV G Class Polaris RZR and XP 900 pre run in khanacross rally racing

    To ensure our new G Class entrants received the full Khanacross racing experience drivers arrived early for pre-event sign on, scrutineering and briefing. With the official business completed, the UTV’s hit the dirt for an on track introduction guided by club secretary Ben Sample. This allowed new drivers to get a feel for their vehicle handling, corners and how to navigate the course.

    The main event, the Twilight Multi-Club Khanacross kicked off as per usual race meeting proceedings at 2pm. Ready to race and excited by the extra challenge of night tests, 56 drivers of all classes pushed their rev limiters around 3 twisted tracks. Competing in one direction in daylight and reversed for the evening. Twilight tracks are only illuminated by lighting from vehicles so it’s worth paying attention to track directions on the pre-run!

    The thrill of driving in darkness gives drivers an extra hit of adrenalin as the tracks seem faster and the disappearing corners tighter. The grunter Polaris XP models roared around the tracks noticeably faster than their light weight siblings the RZR and RZR S models.

    Polaris XP 900 racing in CAMS G Class at Westlakes Automobile Club Khanacross  Our new drivers picked up the track feel quickly with Iain Huges in a Polaris XP scoring overall first place for the day. The next closest overall winner Jason Spruce in a Gemini trailed the Polaris XP by 10 seconds. When micro-seconds can separate winners this large gap proves the potential of the Polaris XP as a true contender for winning the khanacross series in the comming years.

    Other notable drives came from Nathan Chivers and Len Pipiciello who also placed in the overall top ten. A special mention for Ashleigh Pipicello who has never rallyed before showed she is only a few practice days away from mastering her Polairs XP. At the end of the day Ashleigh said she “loves the Khanacross events and can’t wait until the next one!”

    If excitement and adrenaline could be measured it would have been obvious by the wide smiles and camaraderie amongst the teams. Enquires about the next event and encouraging more track days, it’s safe to say all our newbies have got the UTV racing bug!

    4WD Extreme Show, LED Light Bars…. It’s 4WD Adventure HEAVEN!!

    Not just another camping and touring show, The 4WD & Adventure Show is off road heaven for the 4×4 and outdoors lifestyle fans. Showcasing everything from vehicle modifications to camping equipment and even a fishing demonstration there wasn’t much you couldn’t find at Sydney Dragway this weekend (August 26, 27, 28th). Snake Racing proudly sponsored the 4WD Extreme Skills Show and displayed the new range of Rigid Industries LED light bars.

    What was on offer?

    Over three days, 125 4×4 exhibitors, car clubs and services met over 30,000 Sydney and regional NSW adventure fans to discuss everything off road. Patrons could wander through the isles, learning about vehicle modifications, gear up with some specially priced camping equipment or find out about 4WD club life. After viewing all of the stalls and joining your local 4WD club for the next camping trip or social drive, one of the most popular attractions was the 4WD Test Track. A 4×4 track designed to give Sydney-siders a taste for real world off roading, the Test Track combined dirt, rock and water crossings with steep hill climbs and descents. Guided tours allowed riders to ask questions and get valuable advice for when they hit the dirt track.

    Major highlights of the show included the many live presentations. Feel like something different whilst out on the track. No worries, Jo Clews cooked up a storm with her camp oven cooking demonstration. Want to catch a big one? Bushy and Hodgie were spilling all the secrets to fish-whispering in hourly live shows and demonstrations. Want a real adrenalin rush? The Snake Racing 4×4 Arena was the place to be. 25 minuets of heart pumping 4WD Extreme motor sport action 3 times daily had both kids and adults wide eyed with amazement.

    Krystal Harden from Snake Racing teamed up with the Kamikazi 4WD Club to bring off road motor sport and extreme skills to and enthouastic Sydney audience. Shows held daily at 11, 1 and 3pm attracted large crowds to share some valuable recovery and extreme 4×4 driving knowledge. Kicking off with a vehicle recovery display and a few prizes the show informed viewers about extreme vehicle modifications, off road motor sport events and how to get involved through your local club. Presented over a back drop of roaring V8’s, fully flexed suspension and climbing giant tyres, the 4WD Extreme Show, showed there is a whole lot more you can do with your 4×4!
