Off Road Racing returns to the Griffith community with the Griffith Off Road Club hosting Round 4 of the New South Wales Off Road Championship next weekend, 7th to 8th July.

Entries are rolling in for the Griffith 350 with the organisers expecting an influx this week as they head towards the 4th July close off date.

For those familiar with the old point to point, Griffith to Stackpoole Australian Off Road Championship track, this year’s Griffith 350 will be a 33 kilometre loop event at the Stackpoole end, easily accessible from the Mid Western Highway, 25km east of Goolgowi.

Motel accommodation and full camping facilities is available in Goolgowi with the event hub based at the Goolgowi Rec grounds. At a cost of $10 per head for the weekend, it is a great opportunity to support the local community. Also, the local Scout Group will be hosting a roast dinner Friday and Saturday at the Sports Grounds while competitors go through documentation and scrutiny from 4pm – 9pm.

There will be no 98 fuel available at Goolgowi so competitors will need to make alternative plans for their fuel requirements.

Saturday will get underway at 9am with Crew Briefing, followed by reconnaissance and prologue with the field taking to the track at 1pm for section one, four laps of full on off road racing competition.

The field for the Griffith 350 is looking strong with brothers Andy and Matt Ryan leading the charge in their ProLite and Super 1650 buggies. The off road grapevines has Danny Brown in the Trophy Truck, Justin Anderson in the #75 machine and Glenn Owen all hoping to make an appearance. New South Wales contenders already on the list are Warialda’s Derek Rose, Adam Barnacoat, Steve Jones and Griffith local legend Kel Williams.

Sunday will see a further seven laps of the 33 kilometre course, totalling 363 kilometres for the weekend. The Griffith Off Road Club have pulled out all the stops to get off road racing back to the district and with the track said to be in perfect condition, with everything falling into place for a great weekend of off road racing.
