A MOTORKHANA is a cheap and enjoyable form of motorsport and at the same time is one of the most competitive. It is an event in which you can use almost any vehicle (standard road cars can be very competitive) and is primarily a test of driver skills. Cars compete against the clock, one at a time, with drivers negotiating a set course which is defined by (non-damaging) markers such as plastic cones. The course must be negotiated in the correct sequence, with penalties applied for going the wrong way or hitting markers etc. Part of the course may have to be negotiated in reverse. The winner is the person who completes all of the courses in the shortest time. Events are normally held on smooth grass, gravel or tarseal venues such as farm paddocks or carparks. Because the venue is usually a wide open space and the speeds involved are low (more tests are completed using 1st and/or reverse gear ), the risk of vehicle damage while competing is low. Competing In MotorkhanasMinimum Requirements: You will need a car upto WOF standards, be over 12 years of age. After competing in two motorkhanas and/or autocross events, you will be required to become a member of NCC or other car club affliated with Motorsport NZ.
HILLCLIMBS are generally the highest form of motorsport that can be competed in using a normal road car. They are so named because the finish line must be at a higher altitude than the start line and the course must be mostly uphill. It must be remembered that they are considered high speed events, and with higher speeds also comes a higher "incident/accident" risk. The Hillclimb course can be on a private or public road, with either a gravel or tarsealed surface. Competitors compete in Hillclimb individually against the clock with the winner being the person who completes the course in the shortest time. Because the venues used vary so much, those competitors wishing to compete in a standard car (without full harness seat belts and/or roll cage), should check before the event with the organiser to ensure that such a vehicle is appropriate for the venue. Competing in Hillclimbs Minimum Requirements: Need to be a member of NCC or a car club that is affliated with Motorsport NZ (prior to the event), have an upto date competition licence, standard road licence if touring back on open roads, fire extinguisher fixed in approved position, approved helmet, single layer approved overalls with cotton or wool under garments or multi- layered approved overalls, covered in leather foot wear with cotton or wool socks as per Appendix Two Schedule A of the Motorsport Manual.

An AUTOCROSS is the ideal environment in which to learn or improve car control skills while at the same time having a lot of fun. It is an event that favours driver skill over outright horsepower, but at speeds higher than those experienced in motorkhanas. The Autocross course is usually laid out (using hay bales, drums or plastic cones) on a large grass or gravel area such as a farm paddock or a car park, although some clubs have purpose built Autocross circuits. Competitors compete in Autocross events individually against the clock with the winner being the person who completes the course in the shortest time. Because the event venue is usually a wide open space, the risk of vehicle damage is low. Like motorkhanas, it is a cheap event in which to participate and perfectly standard road cars can be very competitive. Competing In Autocrosses Minimum Requirements: You will need a car upto WOF standards (this will be scrutineered at the event), Be over 12 years of age, have an approved helmet, single layer cotton overalls (with cuffs), covered leather foot wear, cotton or wool socks.
