Members of the RCCA were stunned at the recent passing of a much loved member – Wayne Griffiths. Wayne was a life
member and a member of the RCCA for over 45 years. There
was not much Wayne didn’t try in motorsport. Bob Sprague reflects on the memory of him pushing an Escort around Amaroo in the 70s and later all sorts of Hondas. He rallied with Tim Francis in Civics and also competed in the Southern Cross International Rally several
Wayne was a mechanic who learned how to wring the last little
bit out of a Honda motor. He eventually settled on motorkhanas
as his corner of motorsport and achieved great success. He built
his own cars and was very quick on the right day. He was
Australian Champion in 2002 and 2006 as well as numerous
State outright and class wins. Wayne also participated in the official side of motorkhanas being the chair of the panel that controlled the sport in NSW.
Of recent times Wayne found an old Civic and returned to tintop ‘khanaing. He supported events, encouraged members to compete and enjoyed driving. At All French Car Day this year Wayne put up his hand to drive the Bob Sprague’s ute full of club stuff so he could be there in his new Megane. A reflection of the selfless character that Wayne was.
Wayne was also quite an authroity on some odd ball cars that , being an oddball myself , were in my personal realm. Much conversation and good advice about P76s and Austin 7s was of great value and I will greatly miss his guidence and friendship
Thanks, Wayne .
One thing is for sure, he will be missed out on the tarmac by the ‘khana mob.
This year we celebrated 50 runnings of the Jugiong event which started in 1965, it’s a weekend of fierce competition on the Motorkhana paddock and socialising of epic proportions.
Many of our members have been making the pilgrimage to Jugiong for many years so this year was a monumental milestone in this RCCA tradition, and as always we were covered in dust.

This year the RCCA round of the State Motorkhana Championship was held much later than usual on September 8th. As it was the last round before the National event, this allowed the Club to select tests which would be part of those to be run at the Mt Gambier event. This was appreciated by those competitors planning to head to South Australia.
A number of the tests had not been run previously as they had only just been added to the list of approved tests. The Championship only allows one run at each test, so the multiple runs, with extra practice, were appreciated. Congratulations to Andrew Collier who was the outright winner on the day.
