It is with great excitement that the Waikerie Riverland Off Road Racing Association can announce our major event sponsors for 2018; The Waikerie Hotel Motel and ARB.

A strong supporter of community events, the Waikerie Hotel has continued as a major sponsor and with the event now entering in to its 40th year, it is great to have a local organisation in partnership with the club to assist in promoting this iconic race.

ARB has also partnered with us for 2018 to be joint naming rights sponsor and the event will officially be known as The Waikerie Hotel ARB Riverland 300. It is great to have companies like ARB supporting our event in regional SA, they have been long time supporters of Off Road Racing and many of their products have been first tested at Off Road events over the years, producing tough products for the 4WDer, camper and tradie.

The Waikerie race has been through various changes over the past 40 years being run as either a National or very successful State Championship. The event is now proud to be associated with the ARB Australian Off Road Racing Championship as well as being a round of the Element Off Road AORRA South Australian Off Road Championship and the ARB SAORRA Multi Club Series.

We need to acknowledge the many passionate club members and volunteers who have worked throughout the 40 years to make the race the ongoing successful event it is today. The steady implementation of infrastructure, trying various race formats, thousands of hours behind the scenes organising all aspects of putting on a race event each year over 40 years is testament to local club members dedication and support of the community. Special mention must go to the Waikerie Apex club who founded the Waikerie Riverland Off Road Association and event are still very actively involved as the main caterers throughout the weekend. Other organisations that assisted the club over the years are the Waikerie CFS and St. Johns. The support we receive from our landholders is fantastic and we cannot thank them enough for allowing us access to their land.

With entries close to 100 competitors most years it shows Waikerie is a great track with many off roaders claiming it is one of their favourites. Competitors come from all over Australia to compete and we are again expecting a strong field. This year's event will be run over the weekend starting Friday the 13th of July commencing with Scrutiny at the Waikerie Sporting Complex followed by racing at the track on Enduro Road Waikerie on Saturday and Sunday.
