Khanacross (KX) is designed as a step up from Motorkhana (MK). The KX tests are faster and longer than MK.
Our KX’s are run only on loose surfaces. As with a MK, drivers still need to start and stop in a garage and follow the correct course route. Similar time penalties apply to those of Motorkhana events. KX tests can be up to 2km long, use open or forest areas, weave around man made or natural obstacles and can have straights up to 100m long before a bend.
Depending on who is running a KX and where it is being run, will determine the road conditions and set out of the tests. KX can also run in the dark. Unlike Motorkhanas, there a generally no maps provided for KX tests. Instead a drive through is conducted where all competitors drive through each test at slow speed in “Indian File” to familiarise themselves with the route. Multiple KX tests can be run during the day and often more than one test runs at he same time.
Only one driver competes on the test at a time and timing is done by stop watches or beam timing. The winner of a Khanacross has the lowest cumulative time for all tests with the least amount of time penalties.
Car needs to be mechanically sound without major damage and have correctly functioning seats and seat belts. Car must have an in date 1kg fire extinguisher (with metal bracket) bolted in. A normal road car is suitable for Khanacross use. To aid with traction, many competitors fit Mud/snow or rally tyres.The vehicle does not need to be road licensed.
A current CAMS L2NS (or higher) license is required as well as membership in a CAMS affiliated car club. A requirement of neck to wrist to ankle clothing (AKA long shirt and long pants) with covered shoes and a compliant helmet is required for Khanacross. Drivers from as young as 12 years old may compete and multiple drivers may use the same car. A civil drivers’ license is not required to compete in Khanacross.
KX Cost: Average $40 per driver, depending on event and venue.
