Returning to the Australian Off Road Championship in 2013, the Bentleys Cabin Park Flinders 450 on July 27-28 marks the mid-point of the hotly contested AORC season. Two different event winners have graced the top step of the podium at the first two rounds and the race is now on at the top of the leaderboard.

Heading the charge will be the winners of round 1 in Western Australia, Shannon and Ian Rentsch in their #33 SR Racing Jimco who will go toe to toe with the King of the Desert Hayden Bentley, who took victory in Round 2 at the Tatts Finke Desert Race in his #18 Racer.

Snapping at their heels will be a huge depth of twin turbo V6 and V8 powered talent, including reigning Australian Champions Matt Hanson and Leigh Wells in the #Aus1 Snap SMU Jimco and the #21 MBR Jimco of Mark Burrows and Colin Hodge, who have both had podium finishes this season.

The events home at Baroota, just north of Port Pirie in South Australia, has over 40 years of history under its belt and in 2011 it received a major facelift to make it one of the benchmark venues for both competitors and spectators. The traditional track featuring the famous berms and caverns now loops close to the state of the art pit facilities and spectator area on a number of occasions, with a spectacular series of jumps and whooped out sections of track showcasing the high performance of the offroad racing machinery entered.

The event will kick off on Friday night with scrutineering before the cars hit the track in anger for the first on two days of offroad racing action on Saturday morning with the prologue.
