SSCC Clubsport gets underway

Diversity was the key at the Southland Sports Car Club’s first ClubSport event of the new season – the Evolution Motorsport ClubSport Triathlon at Teretonga Park in Invercargill last Sunday.

Entry numbers were impressive following on from last season with one of the most varied entries of vehicles at a recent ClubSport event.

ClubSport is a fantastic competition for all ages and levels of experience and Sunday’s event saw relative newcomers to the sport of just 13 and 14 years old competing against Club President Ian Richardson and Vice President, Stacy Lines plus prominent South Island F1600 racer and long standing SSCC member Noel Atley.

Markus Jocher in his Audi won the ¼ mile Sprint in a time of 12.79 seconds while Andrew Lawrie won the Grass Motorkhana in a Mitsubishi Pajero in a time of 55.83 seconds.

Fourteen-year-old Ryan Fitchett took the Sealed Motorkhana honours in his Renault Clio while Craig Allan in a Honda took the Autocross held in the afternoon.

The Triathlon was a non-championship event which replaced an event cancelled at the end of last season due to lockdown.

The next ClubSport event at Teretonga Park is the first round of the Evolution Motorsport ClubSport Championship on Sunday 16 August.

The club is also encouraging workplace challenges this season – anyone can challenge workmates or someone from another business to contest these events to grab bragging rights either in their own car or one that is available to use on the day.

Don’t hesitate to contact the club for any information on ClubSport or about utilising one of the cars available for the event via the Southland Sports Car Club Clubsport Co-ordinator Malcolm Mitchell at 021 666 956 or

Spectators are welcome to come and view the action and find out more about ClubSport. Admission is free.
