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!

Club Announces $40,000 cash prize pool for 2012 Dash

Carnarvon Western Australia 27 July 2012.

Gascoyne Dash has announced a cash prize pool of at least $40,000 for the 2012 Kickstarters Dash®.

The Dash is a motorsport endurance event over 520kms of the toughest terrain Australia has to offer. Centered on the coastal town of Carnarvon Western Australia the event features 4WDs, buggies, bikes and quads.

Event Director Paul Kelly explained the cash prizes “Cash prizes will be awarded for across all bike and car classes, first to third position. Full details of the cash pool will be released shortly but I can say that winners in each bike and car class will take home $2,000 cash”

Mr Kelly explained the strategy “We looking to increase the competitor field and prestige of the Dash. Cash prizes are part of the compelling reason to experience the Dash challenge”

We asked Mr Kelly about big names for 2012. “We are talking with interstate riders and drivers who are at the pointy end of the Australian desert racing scene and announcements will be made shortly. Our Dash is the event everyone is talking about”.

The big questions remain;

  • Can the cars continue to beat the cars with quality riders like Ben Gragham returning?
  • Will Travis Robinson compete and win his fourth consecutive King of the River title?

Mr Kelly acknowledged the efforts of a key subcommittee lead by Wayne Reece and Peter Barrett who were instrumental in seeking prize sponsorship.

The 2012 Kickstarters Gascoyne Dash ® will be contested 1st to 4th November 2012 in Carnarvon WA. The race track is back to normal with the run down the Gascoyne River on Sunday with finish at the Carnarvon Race Club.

Entries are open and can be found at www.gasdash.com

The event is also seeking expressions of interest from volunteers and details can be found on the website.
