With near perfect racing conditions forecast for this weekend, the 106 entered crews at the MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 350 are set for a top weekend of off road racing.

What has been tagged as one of the most picturesque tracks on the calendar, the track circumnavigates Lake Tyrrell in the mallee region of Victoria.

As the second round of the Victorian off Road Championship and the second round of the ARB Off Road Racing Series, the event, which chalks up its 41st running this year, sees a quality field across the seven entered classes.

The tussle at the top of the field will be tough as teams fight for ARB Off Road Racing Series points. Current points leader and last year’s outright victor and 2014 round one victor Glenn Owen sits one point ahead of Element Racings Aaron Haby; Haby, who has not entered this year’s event, will forfeit his current second place come race end. Carl Haby, in the second of the Element Racing teams Prodigy machines, sits in third on the points tally ahead of local hard charger Andrew McClelland.

The hard luck stories from the ARB Paringa Desert 400 are now a distant memory as teams prepare for their MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 350 assault. Two teams looking to redeem themselves and their points chase will be the single seat Jimco of Brad Chasemore #10 who succumbed to the outback elements on the last lap while in the fight for a podium finish along with Andy Ryan who tried his best bushman mechanics to fix a failing CV in the Alumi Craft #50 just 7km from the finish line.

The class battles will be on with none tougher than the pending ProLite fight. Round one victor Andrew McClelland #131 will be looking to maintain his points lead over Luke Erceg #150. Erceg was leading the class at the ARB Paringa Desert 400 when the Matrix took attacked a wash away hard leaving the crew winded and sidelined, ultimately losing over ten minutes and the class win. The crew are now recovered and looking to redeem themselves at this weekend Mallee Rally; a tough task ahead in a field of 26 ProLites.

29 Super 1650 machines will take to the track on Saturday and with only two teams recording full distance points from round one, the point score is wide open. Brett Price #227 sits just ahead of Shannyn Fitzgerald #209 on the tally sheets, but with drivers like Travis Conrad #206, Ross Allan #214, Terry Molloy #215 to name just a few, all vying for the class win, the stage is set for a super battle in the Super 1650 class.

The Extreme 2WD has a hard fought battle at round one and is set to continue at this weekend MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 350. Round one winner Ivan Roberston #471 is looking to extend his points lead while Paul Grant #405 will be fighting hard to take the mantle from Robertson. Jamie Knight #439 will be hoping to consolidate on is third place and make the two day trip from Goondiwindi worthwhile. Add to that the return of Robert Knott #415 and the debut of Luke Hall into the class in his new Hall Built Chev Silverado #488 and this class will be the one to watch come Sunday afternoon.

Tasmanians are well represented at the lake this weekend with Stephen Watkins #505 spearheading the campaign in the Performance 2WD looking to quash the aspirations of local class legend and round one class winner Bernie Clohesy #570. Sydney based Chris Hardie will be looking to make right after putting the #515 Hilux on its side at Broken Hill, ending the teams weekend of racing.

The points score is wide open in the Extreme 4WD class with Safari legend Kerry Turley currently leading and the only finisher from round one. Owen Ward #832, Mike Magher #882 and Darren Bott #888 all capable of taking the crown from Turley come race end.

Who will conquer the lake? Can Glenn Owen take out back to back MBL Sea Lake Mallee Rally ARB 350 titles and continue his fine form from the ARB Paringa Desert 400. With a strong field of 106 off road racers, we’ll have to wait until Sunday’s race end to find the answer.
