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!

Dash Competitors Make Their mark at Finke

Posted on 12.06.2009

Club member Paul Brown and regular Dash competitors Outerbounds Racing and Ivan Erceg travelled the long distance to Alice Springs to compete the 2009 Finke Desert Race.
Paul, on his Finke debut, finished a credible 36th outright against a field that included the best endures rider in Australia. Asked how Finke compares to the Dash Paul said “the Finke is fast from start to finish whereas the Dash is a technical race which rewards the right decisions at the right time”.

Asked how Finke compares to the Dash Paul said “the Finke is fast from start to finish whereas the Dash is a technical race which rewards the right decisions at the right time”.
Ivan Erceg a familiar sight at the Dash who plays it hard on and off the bike; Ivan finished 32nd outright.
The Outerbounds Race Team of father Brian and sons Beau and Travis took 3 cars to Finke. Unfortunately Brian’s Porter Chevy combination developed gear box problems and failed to finish day one. Son Travis guided the V8 Jimco into 3rd position outright on day one. The big surprise was Beau’s brand new Jimco running a twin turbo V6. The turbo is a big move away from the Chev V8s the family traditionally run and it proved a potent package with Beau and navigator Roy Lukies finishing 3rd outright. When asked about his Finke experience Beau said “we were a bit lucky with a number of front contenders crashing out or breaking. The 2009 Finke was the first outing for the new car so I took it steady trying to feel the car out”. Will the Robinson family and the familiar Outerbounds race cars be back for the 2009 Dash? “You bet” responded Beau.
