EVER wanted to take on the likes of Craig Lowndes and Dakar veteran Bruce Garland?
Here’s your chance.
A new production class in the 2011 Australasian Safari allows standard vehicles, with the necessary modifications to race offroad, to compete.
Production class entries will race alongside Safari veterans and young bloods alike in the existing classes from September 22 to 30 in the remote WA outback, home to the Safari for the past five years.
Event director Justin Hunt said the new category was more a survival, rather than an outright speed class.
“A safe and sensible drive in the event is likely to win the class, and winners will receive full champagne honours at the ceremonial finish, plus it will also get televised coverage.”
A number of big-name Aussie and world competitors have signed up to take on the Goldfields and desert terrain.
Expressions of interest for the Australasian Safari are open and a pre-event guide is available at www.australasian safari.com.au.
Entries close on Friday, August 12.
