Day 2 Tatts Finke Desert Race

It just wasn’t meant to be. After making it to Finke last night and madly carrying out repairs, the boys from Snake Racing Wayne Murphy and Chris Taylor were ready to tackle the day ahead. The return from Finke to Alice Springs was looking promising until a control arm bolt broke on the Polaris XP 900 in the second stage for the day. That was the end for Snake as the boys retired the vehicle and limped back to Deep Well on the service track with temp repairs using zip ties. The service team went in to pick up a very disappointed Wayne and Chris.

All issues aside the boys had a blast attending the event and the whole team really enjoyed the long days and nights and the entire atmosphere that this type of event rallies. We are all looking forward to the party tonight and can finally relax after a few hectic weeks of preparation.

Congratulations must go to Adrian Jackson and Darren Kim from Team Barry Moule for placing 1st and 2nd in the UTV class and Shaun Blowers for placing 3rd.

In overallĀ  outright a huge congrats goes to Hayden Bentley from SA for holding onto 1st place, Shannon Rentsch from Vic in 2nd and Mark Burrows from Vic in 3rd. All 3 formed part of the PRO class and held back the rest of the field.

A big thanks to the whole team from Snake Racing for making this event possible.

Look out for more photos and video from the event on our website soon.
