Promoted by the Burdekin Offroaders Inc, the highly anticipated Pat McDonnell Earthmoving Don River Dash 300 will take place this weekend in the beautiful North Queensland township of Bowen. Once again proudly supported by the Whitsunday Regional Council the popular two-day car and motorbike event, which runs through the dry riverbed of the Don River is set for big things with over 200 bikes and 86 cars ready for launch!

Like the previous two editions, the event will see the competitors head 25km upstream in the dry riverbed of the Don River to the turnaround point, returning on the other side. Three laps of the river will make up Saturday’s first section before competitors complete the same assignment on the Sunday before the 2021 Kings of the River are crowned.

Despite the ongoing COVID crisis crippling the nation leaving many interstate crews with no option but to withdraw including Trophy Truck hard chargers Beau Robinson, Brent Smoothy, Ivan Robertson and Brad Gallard, New South Welshmen Jason Richards, Steven Graham, Derek Rose and David Towers plus the late withdrawals of Queenslanders Ryan Taylor, Tony Fehlhaber and Jan Kraaj the field remains a huge and exciting one with many outright chances!

Defending Kings of the River Champions Talbot Cox and Craig King #16 return in their Racer Engineering Unlimited machine after a nail biting 2 second victory in 2020 over close friend and Burdekin President Michael Marson #32 who too will step out in his Ford Windsor powered Racer Engineering machine; both know the terrain like the back of their hand and will no doubt be ones to watch come Sunday!

2019 DRD Champion Billy Geddes #441 shared the driving duties with former Dakar Champion Toby Price last year to a third outright and will be doing his best to score a second Don River title this weekend.

Hillbilly Racing’s Paul Youman #427 recorded his best outright finish at an event at last year’s DRD in fourth and will be a dark horse once again; so too will Justin Montesalvo #484, Steven Kildey #412, Jamie Knight #439 and Brett Taylor #431 who will make the trek down from Alice Springs to make his Don River debut in his Jimco TT.

Brett Comiskey in his CMS Jimco #100 finished last years event in fifth, though will return to Bowen looking to stretch the legs of his Invitational Chev V8 Twin Turbo powered Racer Engineering 4WD Truck with many predicting it will be very hard to catch!

The Unlimited class is stacked with talent; young guns Stuart Chapman #17 and Cooper Western #61, current North Queensland AORRA Championship leader Kent Battle #31 in his Element machine looking to improve on his sixth place last year, Rohan Williams #29, Craig Krog #23, Dan McKenzie #34 in the CMS Jimco and Kevy Nott #78 who will debut his brand-new Element car will all be in the mix.

Andrew Mowles #135, like Taylor, will make the journey across from the NT to make his Don River Dash and is a genuine outright contender in his Class 1 Razorback, Chris Colborne #169, Pat Philp #182 and Darren Angel #160 others to watch out for. Benjamin Duff #1011 set some fast pace at the recent Inglewood event and will definitely be one to watch out of the Class 10 brigade, likewise Ben Power #1067 and Jason Lavis #1082 in his Southern Cross Mk 5.

Jake Swinglehurst #646 claimed the Class 6 title in 2020 and will this weekend be looking to go back-to-back against a jam-packed line up in his Can Am. Kye Floyd #624 has been nothing short of remarkable to date in 2021 with four outright wins to his name to lead the Queensland Championship by some margin and is undoubtably the class favourite heading into Saturday. Others to keep a close eye on across the riverbed include Tom Swinglehurst #610, local driver Brad Belcher #656, Joshua Weidman #672, Jared Vanderhor #632 and Richard Tassin #691.

Brice Derrick #696s headlines the Class 6s field, alongside current Queensland class leader Darren Brandon #689s, Tony Patterson #675s and the ever-consistent Anna Phillis #644s. Class 66 QLD ARB championship front runner Ashley MacMaster #6644 spearheads his Polaris into battle against former Australian Class Champions John Wisse #6656 and Chris Land #6601 in their Yamahas. Katelyn Long #6626, Ross Newman #6681 and Sam Hancock #6671 are all still within a shot of Queensland silverware with a strong weekends result.

Christian Trusz #816 looks to continue his great 2021 season with a strong showing in Bowen, though will face some fierce competition from John Alfred #819, Chris Weiden #833 and Doug Robke #883 for Class 8 spoils! Luke Peterson #717 and Warren Stevens #724 are the sole Class 7 entrants, likewise Michael Ranson #507 and Tyler Youman #537 who will battle for Class 5 honours, whilst young Taylor Teichmann #364 will line up in her Southern Cross Mark 3 as the only Class 3 competitor.
