2016 Kickstarters Gascoyne Dash

It is with great sorrow that the Gascoyne Off Road Racing Club wishes to inform you that due to low confirmed entries the 2016 Kickstarters Gascoyne Dash will not be held as it is not economically viable.

This decision has not been made lightly, however it does give the committee the opportunity to reinvigorate the event.

All entry fees that have been paid will be reimbursed in full. Deb will be in touch to get your bank details and confirm the amounts paid.

Rest assured that this is not the end of the Gascoyne Dash and we will have exciting news for everyone in the near future.

The Gascoyne Off Road Racing Club would like to thank everyone for their support and we look forward to growing the relationship in the years to come.

The ADVENTURE continues!

2010 Hyden 450

Posted on 10.04.2010

Six club teams attended the first round of the Australian Offroad Championship which was also the second round of the WA Offroad Championships. Some of our officials also attneded to give the promoter Western Desert Racers a hand.

The Gascoyne Offroad Racing Club was out in force at the ARB Pinjarra Engineering 2010 Hyden 450. The Club had 6 cars teams and a group of officials who assisted Western Desert Racers (WDR).

The car teams were;

  • Ted Schultz and Rick Andreoli – Car 736 Ray White Real Estate – Jeep Class 7
  • Peter Barrett and Evan Beckerleg – Car 777 Fascine Lodge Racing – Jeep Class 7
  • Brett and Kevin Renton – Car 74 Renton Racing – Raceco Pro Buggy
  • Ken Styles – Car 44 – Holeshot Pro Buggy
  • Justin Steadman and Saxon Boston – Car 199 Redback Racing Wattleup Tractors - Prolite
  • Darryl Hardman and Graham Hardman – Car 847 Desert Sweet Racing – Class 8 Range Rover

Car 736 navigated by Rick Andreoli to second position in the Western Australian Championship. Rick commented later that night “you just need to point the driver in the right direction”. We understand driver Ted Schultz had a couple of comments but was unavailable to articulate those comments prior to this edition being published. A great weekend for the Schultz Andreoli combination who were the only Carnarvon team to complete the event.

The Prolite of Steadman and Boston showed early form but it seems they don’t have the gentle touch of the previous owner Ken Styles; the car developed problems earlier on the Sunday and retired.

Ken Styles will remember this event by the hole it has put in his wallet, the car blowing a brand new motor on the first leg of Saturday.

The Renton Racing team are used to frustrations and the Hyden 450 was more of the same. Their Jimco Pro Buggy developed problems before leaving Carnarvon but in typical Renton style they pulled another machine out of the shed and went racing. The Raceco failed to complete the first leg of day one with transmission failure.

The Fascine Lodge Racing Team could not have got off to a worse start with gearbox problems in prologue. The boys battled to get the car to the line on Sunday and although they were unable to complete all legs they did put themselves onto the podium picking up a prize in the Australian Offroad Championship section. Pete was overhead to say “best $350 I’ve spent for a while”.

A similar story for the brothers Hardman who despite some technical problems in the V8 Rangie were also able to claim a prize in the WA Offroad Championship.
