Khanacrosses run in a similar format to a Motorkhana however the competitive sections (tests) are longer and faster (watch the video above). Even junior drivers can start straight into Khanacross with no problems at all.
Our Khanacrosses are run on loose surfaces only. Drivers need to start and stop in a garage (marked by traffic cones) and follow the correct route around each test. Knocking down a course marker or going the wrong direction will result in a time penalty.
Each test may traverse man made or natural landscape and can have straights up to 90m long before a bend. KX can also run into the dark (we call them Twilight Khanacross).
Many KX tests can be run during an event and often two or more tests can run at the same time, depending on entry numbers.
Only one driver races on each test at a time (with no passenger) and is timed by stop watch.
The winner has the fastest overall time across all tests with the little or no time penalties.
