This weekend’s ARB Griffith 400 is not only round 2 of the newly formed ARB Australian Off Road Racing Series but also round 4 of the 2013 New South Wales Off Road Championship, with another 100 outright points up for the taking!

With 83 cars expecting to take the track Saturday morning for the all-important prologue sprint around the Stackpoole property, 15 cars are registered for New South Wales Off Road Championship points.

Leading the pack after three rounds of the Championship is Sydney’s Glen Hoffman, in his motorbike charged Pro buggy. Hoffman’s consistent start to the year is helped by the withdrawal of Snake Racings Wayne Murphy and the absence of Justin Guy and Michael Smith improves his hold on the NSW title race.

Kempsey’s Craig Anderson, who currently sits in equal fifth, is looking to improve on his outright placing and seeks to extend his lead in the ProLite Championship battle. Singleton’s Jarrad Eveleigh who sits equal with Anderson in his Sportsman buggy in fifth position, will look to add to his silverware for the season and improving his hopes of a NSW class championship.

Defending champion of New South Wales, Warialda’s Derek Rose, who by his standards has had a slow beginning to 2013, will be out to improve on his position of seventh outright at the state’s longest race, and will look to increase his lead in the super 1650 title race.

Warren Barron of Coonabarabran, who currently sits in tenth outright and second in the super 1650 class behind Rose, will look to build on his podium finish at Wittitrin and bank some more valuable championship points.

Len Barron and David Nickiforoff both hold down current podium championship positions and will be out this weekend in force to close the gaps in their respective Prolite and Super 1650 classes. Murray Collins who is coming off two terrific Performance 2WD titles at Crookwell and Wittitrin, is aiming to continue his run of form to close in or pass Jan Hedley for the class championship lead this weekend.

Jeff Thomas, Malcolm Bird and Darrin Machell are also tackling the ARB Griffith 400 in chase of championship points after their previous outings resulted in a finish in their Pro and Performance 2WD classes respectively. Other NSW registered competitors, campaigning for championship points are Glen Towers, Laurence Cripps, Anthony Lia and Paul Grant.

So with the weekend’s scrutineering underway and the green light only hours away, not only will the battle be on for ARB championship points, New South Wales competitors will run their own battles to keep their own 2013 New South Wales title ambitions alive.

Don’t miss one second of the racing this weekend on the Stackpoole property located on the outskirts of Goolgowi, with action kicking off at 11am Saturday morning. Tune in to the live internet coverage of the track commentary and minute by minute typed commentary.
