Extra Kms for Bencubbin 400

If you are heading to the 2018 Marsue Transport Bencubbin 400, please note…

There has been a slight change to the event format – laps of the enduro section are now 81km in length (instead of 75km), taking the full competitive distance for State Championship entrants to 430km (349km for Multi-Club entrants).

Why? With seeding in full swing in the wheatbelt, we have made necessary adjustments to the track to better navigate around the freshly cropped paddocks.

Please read the bulletin for more information.

Entries are now closed for Round 3 of the 2018 CAMS, Carnarvon Motel WA Off-Road Championship, and Round 2 of the 2018 WAORRA Club Championship – the Marsue Transport Bencubbin 400, and we are at capacity with 50 entries! Check out the full entry list on the MyRaceResult website.

–PLEASE NOTE– There has been a slight change to event format – laps of the enduro section are now 81km in length (instead of 75km). Please read the bulletin for more information.

With a mix of fast flowing track through the sandalwood shire, as well as tight twists and turns through scenic bushland, the track offers various terrain including smooth sandy sections, rolling rocky ridges, gravel and dirt tracks. Each class gets its own advantage in different areas of the track – the big engines will gain their time on the open flowing sections, while the small nimble cars will make up time through the twisty bush land.

The track constantly changes throughout the race, with ruts, whoops and wash outs forming during the race, and rocky outcrops that seem to grow larger every lap. Competitors will never know if any of Pedro’s infamous jumps will appear.

Held on the WA Day long weekend in June, Saturday will see teams trying to clock their fastest possible time during prologue, followed by an all-out sprint around the 25km short track of Section 1, where they will jostle for position before the main enduro event the following day. Sunday’s enduro will see teams fighting to complete five laps of the long 75km track… the ability to read the changing conditions each lap will be key to each team’s success during the gruelling 375km, all day event. This is definitely not a race for the faint hearted.

This is a great event for families though, with camping available at the Bencubbin Oval, catering, licensed bar, hot showers, toilets, playground, and multiple spectator points including a run on the road in front of the Bencubbin Primary School.

A huge thank you goes out to our event sponsors:

Round 3 of the 2017 CAMS, Carnarvon Motel, Western Australian Off-Road Racing Championship, and Round 2 of the 2017 WAORRA Club Championship Series, took place over the WA Day long weekend (3-4 June 2017).

One of the fastest tracks in Western Australia, the Marsue Transport Bencubbin 400 saw 39 competitors start from the sports oval in the town of Bencubbin and cover land across several farming properties. As always, it was a tough, gruelling, but fast long course off-road racing track that consisted of a minor course of 25 kilometres plus a main course of 75 kilometres. The track comprised some tight twisty sections among the sandalwood trees, and some high-speed paddock sections. The fast sections were interspersed with several tighter sections to keep the drivers honest. At the end of Sunday’s racing, 14 cars crossed the finish line completing all five laps.

Congratulations to Harleigh Uren (77), Nathaniel Edwards, Luke McLean and Charlie Edwards (161), and Jared Percival and Darren Beckett (119) for taking out the podium positions. You can read the full race report on the WAORC website.

With catering, a licensed bar, hot showers, clean toilets, a green sporting oval, a playground, and lots of spectator points including a run on the road in front of the Bencubbin Primary School, spectators and families had a great time too.
