We are excited to announce we have a brand new track for our August event and entries are now open!
The WAORRA, Cochrane’s Transport Mid-West Challenge will take place over the weekend of 19-20 August 2017. It will be Round 4 of the 2017 CAMS, Carnarvon Motel Western Australian Off-Road Racing Championship and Round 3 of the WAORRA Club Championship Series.
If you like a challenging track like Mogumber, with some wide sections like Narrogin and some sandy sections like Badgingarra, then we have the track for you! Just north-east of last year’s track in Badgingarra, the location is approximately 295km north of Perth.
Our event organising crew have spent many weekends up at the property clearing trees and grading a track – forget fencelines and crops, this is real off-road racing.
The event format will cater to both State and Multi-Club entrants, with six laps of the approximately 33km circuit for State competitors, and five laps for Multi-Club competitors. Entries are now closed, with a field of 33 vehicles ready to tear up the track – check out the entry list.
Camping is free and available from Friday 18 to Monday 21 August, with portable toilets available at the track.
We are on a tight schedule for Scrutineering and Documentation on Saturday, so competitors – if you are unable to complete yours on Friday evening, you need to contact us ASAP (by email firstname.lastname@example.org) to make an appointment for Saturday morning. Limited places are available. Racing starts at 11:30am Staurday and 7:30am Sunday – read the full event schedule.
There will be a canteen on site from Friday to Sunday thanks to Mike and Rachel Henderson and the catering team from the Badgingarra Roadhouse (check out the menu), and Graeme from Cafe 2U will be serving up strong coffee and hot chocolate on Saturday and Sunday.
No dogs at this event, as there is livestock on the property. A communal camp fire will be in the camping area for everyone to enjoy. Individual fires will be permitted in safe areas (i.e. no fires near fuel containers). No dirtbikes.
For those with kids – bikes are not recommended at this event due to double gees, and thick-soled shoes are advised. Noise curfew applies from 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights.
We’d like to thank major sponsor Cochrane’s Transport for supporting the event again this year, as well as Mesloe Vegetation Management and Remote Plumbing, Gas and Civil.
