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!

King Rod Crowned

Posted on 04.11.2012

Queensland enduro rider Rod Faggoter will be crowned King of the River for the 2012 Kickstarters Gascoyne Dash. He achieved the best possible result in his first attempt at this gruelling 524km desert race completing the distance in a time of 5hrs 1m 29s, virtually 28 minutes ahead of the fastest car; taking the overall win.

 "This race has got everything and a little bit more," said Rod as he now sets his sights on the 2013 Dakar event. KTM Factory rider Mathew Fish lead all the way and looked a certainty to take the win until he detonated his engine just 25km from the finish; he too now sets his sights for Dakar and will ride  for the Husqvarna Team.

Of the twenty-one cars that started day two, 17 finished. First across the line was the Perth based #968 BAT Racing pro buggy of Brad Cooper/Mal Yeardly. Second on the podium for the cars was the Carnarvon combination of #74 Brett and Kevin Renton also in a pro buggy and third in their Extreme 2wd was David McShane and Craig Greentree  in the Ford Protruck providing the again the Dash track is suitable for high performance two wheel drives.

As mentioned Rod Faggoter was first across the line for the bikes, closely followed - just two minutes later - by #311 Luke Clay from …. and it was Carnarvon local #2 Warren Kempton who claimed third.

Event Director Paul Kelly said it was the best event yet, as things ran smoothly with significant changes implemented. "We've tightened up the field which made for a more entertaining finish for the spectators. We've employed a different timing system that allows all to monitor results via the internet and the quality entertainment throughout the race really brought a world class feel to this year's event and of course the prize pool is the biggest ever making the 2012 event the second richest desert race in Australia."

Results are provisional at time of release, full results and a race report will be released tomorrow on www.gasdash.com
