This weekend the Millicent Sand Buggy Club are hosting the popular Mumbannar Off Road Challenge, just 30km from the south east city off the Mt Gambier to Heywood Road.

As the first round of the club’s series, expectations are high for some close wheel to wheel racing amongst the scrub land backdrop.

A strong field of entrants are ready to contest the 150kms of racing on Saturday 20th May starting at 9.30am SA time. Heading the list at his first outing for the year is last year’s outright winner Jason Peel in his Unlimited buggy, looking to make it back to back Mumbannar victories. Another past winner of the event, Garry Turnbull, is another to be hitting the track for the first time in 2017, and will be hoping to stamp his mark on the Mumbannar circuit having tasted success in 2015.

Ivan Schmocker in the single seat Unlimited buggy will also be confident of a top place finish after showing good speed at previous meetings this year.

The trophy trucks of Damien Nicol and Andy Murdoch have entertained the crowds as they push their vehicles and themselves to the limit around the black dirt track and this time around are sure to produce more excitement once again.

With the entry list currently close to 20 teams, there will be fantastic class racing action throughout the field in the heats on the day.

Saturday morning will see all cars go through scrutineering and then line up to greet the green flag at 9.30am SA time. Camping is available at the track with toilets available and also a BBQ and drinks on the Saturday. Free entry to the public, with signs off Princes Highway.
