The recent Funkhana hosted by the Lithgow District Car Club at their Yvonne Martyn Memorial Motorsport Park proved to be an outstanding success attracting drivers young and old from far and wide.
Based on just having fun behind the wheel of a car in a relaxed atmosphere proved to be a winning formula, with another similar event planned for juniors and officials early in the new year. Keep up with the news on our Lithgow District Car Club Facebook page.
Young Beth Chapman won the day in her Toyota Echo with reverse results from Deanne Hudson driving the club’s Toyota Camry from Hayley Wallace at the wheel of the Club’s Mazda 323.
Beth also took home the encouragement award, while Volkan Gunduz had the best-presented Christmas-themed car.
Volcan Gunduz was again outstanding at the wheel of his Subaru Impreza to take the inaugural Les Taylor Junior Champion Award for 2023 and was presented with the magnificent perpetual shield.
A big thank you to Joe Chapman, Hayley Wallace and Graham Cooke for organising the event with help on the day from Grant and Lyn Cooke, Kylie Selmes, Adam Bromfield and Gloria Bird.
