    Wittitrin 300 Run and won 

    Round 3 (Wittitrin 300) of the NSW Off Road Championship was run over the weekend on a very muddy track after a week of heavy rain. The rain subsided on Friday and the biggest show of vehicles this event has seen went ahead with 40 rolling up to take on the wet and muddy conditions.

    The boys from Snake (Wayne Murphy and Chris Taylor) experienced some minor issues ranging from a failed spark plug to a rear wheel problem, unfortunately costing them precious time and positions. They did manage to claw their way back on Sunday morning and still managed to finish in the top 10 with an 8th outright and 3rd in class behind the visitors from Queensland.

    Overall the general feeling was the event was fantastic and very well run with great facilities and people throughout the weekend.

    With a Polaris XP900 that started out Blue, it came back to Sydney a nice shade of Brown and was unrecognisable upon unloading from the truck. The boys are up to their 3rd attempt at washing the vehicle and all the gear that goes with it.

    Congratulations to Chris and Len Levi 1st outright

    Jeff Thomas, Peter Calvert and Louise Dorrian2nd 2nd outright

    Dale and Mal Chadburn 3rd outright

    Round 4 of the NSW Off Road Championship will be run at Griffith 13th and 14th July.  See you there.

    Ian Paltridge – Gympie Queensland Off Road Drivers Series Round 4 

    WRITTEN BY IAN PALTRIDGE

    This was to be our first ever cams event and it turned out to be a ripper 7km short course track. There were 33 cars in total across all classes so we were in for some great racing. Each car started at 2 minute intervals with only a one lap sprint. This continued for the entire event with no room for error with only one lap to get it right. There was only to be 2 laps on Saturday but after some sweet talking we convinced them to add 2 more laps with great results. We were chasing a class one buggy and another Polaris for the top spot by days end with a night stage still to go.

    We stalled in the night stage much to my disgust and managed to lose precious time trying to start the car with no internal light. (Very funny later on but not at the time).

    Sunday continued with the same format but the stalling issue continued so we had to behave ourselves just to finish and keep our spot. This didn’t stop a red mist moment and a near roll over up on one wheel nearly take out a tree moment.

    The event was a great start to Cams racing for us as we finished 2nd in class and 3rd outright coming in behind a class 1 buggy and a seasoned Polaris racer against 33 cars.

    We found this event to be heaps of fun and very well run. The track was near perfect with motocross jumps, big gullies and well over 100 turns in 7km’s.

    Snake to attack Finke Desert Race 

    The boys from Snake Racing are madly working on their Finke Desert Race vehicle to get it finished in time for the race on 8th – 10th June.

    With only a week more in preparation time and a NSW Off Road event coming up this weekend its all hands on board before the trek across to Alice Springs NT next week.

    There is a large mix of vehicles heading to Alice Springs and the biggest line up of UTV vehicles for an event of this type in Australia this year. Of the 94 vehicles entered, 12 of them will be made up of UTV’s from around the country. This is very exciting for all teams but Wayne Murphy and Chris Taylor from Snake Racing are really looking forward to competing against all states, ready to give it a real go and will hopefully end up on the podium.

    If you are not in the Northern Territory during this week make sure you check out the results, photos and updates throughout the following week.

    Good luck to Wayne and Chris and the whole team from Snake Racing.
