John I hope the leg is healing up. I was really bummed for you- Its no better to go out on the first stage, or the last.


Entry confirmed. Flights confirmed. Getting into Perth on Saturday the 15th in the afternoon.

neither- both of those are subsidiary challenges i'm led to believe. The ADV tour is like the ADV class in rallymoto- roughly the same route but no points, sortof.
the DAkar CHallenge is (I think) a new gig started by Safari, in that if you actually win, and havent won the Safari before, you get your entry fee for the DAkar paid. Mind you, thats only about 25% of the costs of doing Dakar but its a start

I'm on just the ordinary regualr moto entry.

Indeed, there is the Australasian Safari Rallye itself and then inside the Rallye there is a 'class' called the Dakar Challenge. To qualify for this class you should not be an 'expert' (as designated by ASO) or have competed in the Dakar before. Winning this class guarantees you a spot in the Dakar (entree fees paid for by ASO).

The ADV Tour is a leasure ride along some of the same routes as used by the race competitors

Western Australia’s only 4WD and adventure park, Murchison Offroad Adventures, will test its tracks against some of the world’s best in September when a leg of the [ AUSTRALASIANSAFARI.COM.AU ] Rally takes on its outback terrain.

Located five and a half hours north of Perth, or 90 minutes from Geraldton, Murchison Offroad Adventures has a massive 1,215 km2 of land and hundreds of kilometres of dirt tracks designed for enthusiasts to escape for an off-road adventure. When Australia’s toughest motorsport event visits next month the dust will be flying higher than usual!

Off-road racing is growing in popularity in the Murchison area, but owner and manager Bev Lane said most competitors travelled from Perth, Kalgoorlie or further afield for the experience.

"You can camp along the Murchison river in isolated spots or stay in the Shearers Quarters for a bit more privacy. We give you a mud map and you drive along the track best suited to you - whether it’s 2WD, 4WD, beginners or experienced" Bev Lane said.

The property also offers free family activities such as kayaking, archery and pony rides. Over the next 12 months further investment will see it become a premier holiday destination in the Midwest of Western Australia.

Bev revealed that sand, mud, rocks and washouts are all on the cards for Australasian Safari competitors. "Our stage of the Australasian Safari could be one of the most challenging" Bev Lane said. "It will slow them down and make them think."

Spectators can witness the action from a spectator point housed at the "Dirt Dust n Diesels Bar and Grill" located on the property where the vehicles will race past. For further information on Murchison Offroad Adventures visit [ MURCHISON OFFROAD ADVENTURES ].

For details on Australasian Safari (21 to 29 September) visit [ AUSTRALASIANSAFARI.COM.AU ]. Updates are available on Facebook and Twitter at @austsafari and check out last year’s event on the YouTube channel "AustralasianSafari".

Kiwi Safari Team enters Safari 2012

Rider entry has been submitted and Service Crew and vehicle entry about to be submitted, so the Kiwi Safari Team will be present and accounted for in 2012!
Ben (topo) is heading across the ditch from the sunny South Island, then across another ditch to Perth, to swing the spanners again, keep me going and drive the little Landy around the countryside.
Thread started in the Kiwi pages HERE

Ciao
JayBo
