Import Monster – SAU & DECA :: Motorkhana Shepparton

180sx nissan drift action
Shepparton put on some great weather, with a strong attendance and a truck load of orange cones this event was definitely on. The 2nd ROUND of the 2012 DECA CHAMPIONSHIP hosted by import monster and Skylines Australia forum was about to begin, this being my first motorkhana I was unsure what to expect.

Skid pans are just the place to sharpen up your drift skills, even if you are competing in a motorkhana.

Nissan was out in force, showing why their Motorsport history is so rich.

The motorkhana event provides a great chance for the SAU members and guests to meet and greet.

With an eye on the prize, and evaluating the competition, many drivers would study others technique and braking points.
180sx tearing it up
Probably the best performer of the day was Leon in his very loud 180sx, awesome drift skills and amazing car control! while still being fast!

Not even a puddle could stand in the way of a good time.

Full commitment every time, this bloke had no fear and would push it to the edge all day long.

180sx speeding
Leon has spent a lot of time on this car, he gave hell to it all day and the crowd just loved it.
skids and cars
The place started to look a little like Easter Nats after a while.

This is the view from the other end of the skid pan where the battles and other motorkhana events took place.

Competition on the skid pan was fierce.

nissan z drift
There were some P platers with serious skills and little to no clearance rocking the track.
mitsubishi evo9
Serious cars! and fun competition.
face of the driver
One of the most impressive things about this motokhana was the amount of effort people would go to, not only to compete and just have their cars finished in time but also preform as one man pit crews.
With standard cars right up to serious track monsters, there is a place for everybody in this sport.
You don’t have to be ken block to compete, all in all a great event and well worth checking out.
