NRA challenges motor riders

The National Racing Association (NRA) in partnership with Castrol Activ Premium presented MOTOKHANA, a rider skills challenge on September 19, October 18 and November 9 of last year at Liberty Center, SM Southmall and Super8 respectively.

MOTOKHANA, a motorcycle sporting challenge, are competitions in which drivers attempt to maneuver around a twisty course in the quickest possible time. The course is usually set out on grass, or maybe a shopping centre car park, and is defined by flags or witches hats. Cars run singly and are timed. After everyone has run that course, the markers are set out in a new pattern, and the whole field attempts the next test.

The object of the competition is for each driver to complete all the test of the program in the prescribed manner, in the shortest possible time, without incurring penalties. Motorkhanas are regarded as the introductory level of events in the spectrum of motorsport. They offer to clubs and competitors the opportunity to conduct and take part in some of the less formalized events conducted under the National Competition Rules, in which the essential skills of car control and judgment may be practiced under conditions which avoid many of the hazards of public roads.

Participants were those with registered motorcycle or scooter and restriction 1 license to ride. The event was sponsored by TEKNIC, Inside Racing, Manila Bulletin, Playboy, Business World, The Manila Times, Tribune, Aeromed, Motorista Magazine and Cruising.
