Goldfield Ashes

The Charters Towers Goldfield Ashes is the largest amateur cricket carnival in the southern hemisphere. It is conducted in January by the Charters Towers Cricket Association Incorporated (CTCA). The event was recently given the status of being a Queensland Iconic Event. Matches are played on 58 different playing fields, including some which are privately owned. Whilst 'The Ashes' has grown to levels well beyond the imagination of President Jack Meeson's original concept, it has not lost its reputation for friendliness and hospitality. Perhaps within that reputation, lies the secret of its past success and assured growth in the future.

Ironman/Aluminium Lady Motorkhana/Khana Cross

Join in on the action as a spectator or competitor of Motorkhana and Khanacross events! These Motorsport events are designed to test the acceleration braking and handling of cars and the skill and judgement of the drivers. Most importantly, motorkhanas provide fun and enjoyment whilst practicing and learning car control. Oversteer and understeer will be found in abundance, but at safe speeds under controlled conditions . Khanacross events have longer test sections and are faster. On Saturday Motorkhana entrants will manoeuvre their cars through tight tests as quickly as possible - one car at a time - on dirt surfaces. No doubt drivers will be sliding and spinning their car accurately while maintaining speed through the test course, with some reversing included to stretch the drivers skills. Sunday, the Khanacross will see competitors put to the test, with a trickier course at higher speed. Don't miss the action!
