VIDEO: Drivers just drifting away at CQ Livestock Exchange

THE CENTRAL Queensland Motor Sporting Cub wrapped up its 2015 season with a driftkhana at the Central Queensland Livestock Exchange last Sunday.

The club hosts between four and five driftkhanas a year and the last one traditionally finishes their season.

Up to 37 competitors and their machines, some standard and some customised, took to the drfiftkhana course.

The aim is to record the fastest possible time, across six runs, between the start and finish garages negotiating a series of flags in the fastest possible time.

Rocky boy Ben Barnes was one of two juniors taking part. Barnes won that class, with a total time of 259.30 seconds.

Barnes also performed well in the outright competition.

In that class, Gladstone driver Thomas Craig won, in a total time of 170.74 seconds.

In second place was Rocky's James Guy in 182.14 and in third place was another Gladstone competitor, Keith Honour in an outright time of 208.72.
