    Snakes ring out warning for Dondingalong off-road race meeting 

    FIRST PUBLISHED THE MACLEAY ARGUS SEPTEMEBER 11TH 2012

    WHILE an encounter with a serpent is normally something to avoid at all costs, everyone is looking forward to seeing how a couple of ‘snakes’ perform at Dongingalong this weekend.

    Luckily for the other off-road racers competing in Round 6 of the NSW Series, the ‘snakes’ in question are not of the wildlife variety, rather two machines entered by ‘Snake Racing’, a Sydney-based manufacturer and distributor of 4X4 parts and accessories.

    What makes the ‘Snake Racing’ team so different is the fact they compete in the Utility Terrain Vehicle class, using a couple of Polaris vehicles.

    Since debuting earlier this year, the team has opened plenty of eyes with the stunning performance of their short-wheelbase machines that are powered by 900cc engines.

    “Make no mistake, the guys from ‘Snake Racing’ are heading to Dondingalong this weekend intent on putting on quite a show” said Kempsey Macleay Off Road Club media officer Rod Thurgood.

    “These diminutive vehicles are super-fast, and could easily pose a big threat for outright honours at Dondingalong.

    “We have already seen Polaris Buggies finish third outright in the last two Wittitrin 300s, so it would certainly be a brave individual who would bet against something similar happening again this Saturday and Sunday.”

    The Dondingalong Off Road Challenge has attracted a strong field, with everything from powerful single seat buggies, to high flying pickup trucks, and the extremely popular utility terrain vehicles.

    Sunny Corner Rally – Bathurst 21/04/12 

    The Sunny Corner rally was held on 21/04/12 near Bathurst approx 2.5 hours from Sydney.
    With a unregistered vehicle permit in hand and pre scrutineering done prior to the event we travelled up late Friday to camp over night.
    The AMSAG run event is 3 stages repeated for a total of 6 stages with over 111kms of competitive klm to keep you busy for the day.
    From an early hour The Rally Head quarters in the old forestry camp filled up quickly with the 51 strong entries.
    After a quick check in and sign on and a  competitor briefing it was straight in to it. This type of rally is a blind rally, this means no pre run you just follow the directions (tulips ) in your road book.
    Starting from the back of the field it was clear the Snake XP900’s could be competitive in this forest rally after catching and overtaking two cars in the first stage.
    The tight twisty and rough sections were perfect for the Snake Racing XP900 it was in the long fast straights that we were struggling to get the top speeds that the cars were achieving.
    After an action packed day of drifting in the dirt thru the forest tracks 39 of the 51 competitors finished.
    We were still happy with a solid first in class and ninth overall for our first AMSAG event and hope to compete at many more events in the future.
    Thanks to Peter Batt the event director and all the volunteers for a great event.

    2012 Australian Side By Side Rally Championship Quit Forest Rally Result 

    Snake Racing takes a 3rd place in the second round of the Australian Side by Side Championship Quit Forest Rally in WA.
    The Quit Forest Rally is always a spectator and competitor favourite, based
    in WA’s No.1 holiday destination, Busselton and the picturesque inland town of Nannup.
    Driver Nathan Chivers teamed with his dad Les for there second time
    this season in the Snake Racing XP900 Side x Side. Dusty long tracks challenged the team with the air cleaners needing constant attention to maintain engine RPM.
    A completely different type of  thought was needed compared to the mud or rain they experienced in round 1 held in Victoria only weeks prior.
    Keeping a cool head and not taking too many chances kept us up the front of the pack and out of the dust said Nathan Chivers.
    The car ran great, with Dad on pace notes and the other competitors all keen to be at the finish line first made the event even more of a blast.

    UTV and Polaris Come & Try Khanacross a Success! 

    Polaris RZR S, RZR and XP at Snake Racing Come Try Twilight Khanacross

    G Class gets racing as UTV owners take on the Twilight Tracks!

    UTV owners from across NSW took up the invite to rally as part of the Snake Racing UTV Come & Try Day and Westlakes Twilight Khanacross on September 3rd. 10 eager G Class drivers competed in Polaris RZR, RZR S and the new, higher horse-power XP model vehicles.


    CAMS UTV G Class Polaris RZR and XP 900 pre run in khanacross rally racing

    To ensure our new G Class entrants received the full Khanacross racing experience drivers arrived early for pre-event sign on, scrutineering and briefing. With the official business completed, the UTV’s hit the dirt for an on track introduction guided by club secretary Ben Sample. This allowed new drivers to get a feel for their vehicle handling, corners and how to navigate the course.

    The main event, the Twilight Multi-Club Khanacross kicked off as per usual race meeting proceedings at 2pm. Ready to race and excited by the extra challenge of night tests, 56 drivers of all classes pushed their rev limiters around 3 twisted tracks. Competing in one direction in daylight and reversed for the evening. Twilight tracks are only illuminated by lighting from vehicles so it’s worth paying attention to track directions on the pre-run!

    The thrill of driving in darkness gives drivers an extra hit of adrenalin as the tracks seem faster and the disappearing corners tighter. The grunter Polaris XP models roared around the tracks noticeably faster than their light weight siblings the RZR and RZR S models.

    Polaris XP 900 racing in CAMS G Class at Westlakes Automobile Club Khanacross  Our new drivers picked up the track feel quickly with Iain Huges in a Polaris XP scoring overall first place for the day. The next closest overall winner Jason Spruce in a Gemini trailed the Polaris XP by 10 seconds. When micro-seconds can separate winners this large gap proves the potential of the Polaris XP as a true contender for winning the khanacross series in the comming years.

    Other notable drives came from Nathan Chivers and Len Pipiciello who also placed in the overall top ten. A special mention for Ashleigh Pipicello who has never rallyed before showed she is only a few practice days away from mastering her Polairs XP. At the end of the day Ashleigh said she “loves the Khanacross events and can’t wait until the next one!”

    If excitement and adrenaline could be measured it would have been obvious by the wide smiles and camaraderie amongst the teams. Enquires about the next event and encouraging more track days, it’s safe to say all our newbies have got the UTV racing bug!

    4WD & Adventure Show 2011 Sydney 

    Krystal Harden from Snake Racing at 4WD Adventure Show Sydney LED light display

    4WD Extreme Show, LED Light Bars…. It’s 4WD Adventure HEAVEN!!

    Not just another camping and touring show, The 4WD & Adventure Show is off road heaven for the 4×4 and outdoors lifestyle fans. Showcasing everything from vehicle modifications to camping equipment and even a fishing demonstration there wasn’t much you couldn’t find at Sydney Dragway this weekend (August 26, 27, 28th). Snake Racing proudly sponsored the 4WD Extreme Skills Show and displayed the new range of Rigid Industries LED light bars.

    What was on offer?

    Over three days, 125 4×4 exhibitors, car clubs and services met over 30,000 Sydney and regional NSW adventure fans to discuss everything off road. Patrons could wander through the isles, learning about vehicle modifications, gear up with some specially priced camping equipment or find out about 4WD club life. After viewing all of the stalls and joining your local 4WD club for the next camping trip or social drive, one of the most popular attractions was the 4WD Test Track. A 4×4 track designed to give Sydney-siders a taste for real world off roading, the Test Track combined dirt, rock and water crossings with steep hill climbs and descents. Guided tours allowed riders to ask questions and get valuable advice for when they hit the dirt track.

    Major highlights of the show included the many live presentations. Feel like something different whilst out on the track. No worries, Jo Clews cooked up a storm with her camp oven cooking demonstration. Want to catch a big one? Bushy and Hodgie were spilling all the secrets to fish-whispering in hourly live shows and demonstrations. Want a real adrenalin rush? The Snake Racing 4×4 Arena was the place to be. 25 minuets of heart pumping 4WD Extreme motor sport action 3 times daily had both kids and adults wide eyed with amazement.

    Krystal Harden from Snake Racing teamed up with the Kamikazi 4WD Club to bring off road motor sport and extreme skills to and enthouastic Sydney audience. Shows held daily at 11, 1 and 3pm attracted large crowds to share some valuable recovery and extreme 4×4 driving knowledge. Kicking off with a vehicle recovery display and a few prizes the show informed viewers about extreme vehicle modifications, off road motor sport events and how to get involved through your local club. Presented over a back drop of roaring V8’s, fully flexed suspension and climbing giant tyres, the 4WD Extreme Show, showed there is a whole lot more you can do with your 4×4!
