The 2017 off road racing year is moving up a gear with the opening round of the 2017 CAMS Australian Off Road Championship just on a month away.

Venue and track preparations are well in hand and with entries at 30 on the recently published competitor list, and more to add once they’ve been through the checking process, the St George 399 is all go.

“The entry list has been released by AORCOM and we have had a few more entries while waiting, and have about 15 more places to fill” explained Anthony Brose, event organiser. “Anyone that’s entering the ARB round at Mildura the week before and are possibly thinking of also doing the St George 399, we understand that it is a hard to enter both being unsure of car condition. If you’re in that position, please contact me to talk about your options – 0423156500”.

As most offroaders would know, the border region of south Queensland has one of the best tracks in the country at Goondiwindi. The St George venue is just 100km away and is shaping up to complement outback Queensland’s race track.

Tony Brose continued “to answer some question regarding the track; Why only 36km? 36km to give racers the best track possible and not have them racing around a maze by trying to squeeze in another 10km. The pits have been located at a mid-point of the track to have a spectator point where you can see more of the action. With a series of woops (the Bakers dozen) on one side of the spectator area with table top jumps on the other side. Just in case the track breaks up on the Saturday we have graders and tractors on standby for any track repairs.”

To help teams prepare for the event the club has put together footage from a complete lap of the track taken in the St. George Bakery Toyota Pre Runner.

Stay tuned for further information and, as entries come to hand, we will publish them here.
