The Limestone Coast Off Road Club are excited to host the inaugural running of the Glenroy Plains PMD 2012 Off Road Masters on 27th -29th July. The race will be round 2 of the Victorian Off Road Championship, Round 4 of the South Australian Off Road Championship, and the final round of The Performance Metals Tri Series.

1444b_sm The enduro is held on Greg Gartners’ property known as Moorex, which is located 25 kms north of Naracoorte, on the Bordertown Road. Friday night involves the scrutiny of all race vehicles, where they are thoroughly safety checked.

The action on Saturday starts at 11.30am where all race cars will do prologue, a shortened lap of the race track, to gain their starting position for the race. At the conclusion of prologue, the race cars will line up in their respective prologue position to battle it out the first two laps of the 45km course.

There will also be two displays by Trophy Kart Australia in between the prologue and race start. These are an exciting new breed of off road vehicle brought in from the USA that are miniature versions of trophy trucks and are powered by 200-450cc 4stroke motocross bike engines.

Taking off at 9.30 am Sunday will see five more action packed laps, broken up with 2 x 30 minute pit breaks, where the crews work tirelessly refuelling and checking over all components on the race cars.

Some outright contenders include Greg Gartner and Jamie Jennings in the #3 Ford F-truck along with last year’s winners Justin and Owen Anderson in the #75 Tatum buggy, back to make it a hat trick of Moorex victories.

1444c_sm Other names include Glenn Owen, Andrew Mowles, Jon Hederics, Gary Turnbull and Mark Burrows in his brand new Jimco 2012 Aussie Special; all looking at having their names engraved first on the Off Road Masters Cup, an impressive perpetual trophy which will be sure to have all competitors giving 110%.

Sportzprint will again be trackside supplying the 2012 Off Road Masters official merchandise, from hoodies to beanies, stubby holders and jackets, and more. With great spectating views and facilities, and all the action supplied, it makes for a great family weekend with admission $5 for adults and children under 16 free. Plenty of variety of hot food and refreshments will be available with catering all weekend.
