The inaugural running of Australian Safari in Western Australia has attracted a total of 103 competitors.

The motorcycle category will be hotly contested, with 82 bikes at the start line. Twenty-one cars will tackle the 5500 competitive kilometre course, which starts in Kununurra on August 24 and finishes in Perth on September 1.

There are a total of 15 international entries, with Dubai, the United States, Japan, Sweden, England, Scotland and Papua New Guinea represented.

Organisers are delighted that the one hundred entry mark has been bettered for the event’s debut in the West.

“This is a highly competitive field with really good depth,” said Safari Event Director, Justin Hunt.

“To get this level of take-up in year one is a bonus. It gives us a great base to build on for future years. We’re very confident that once people know how good the course is, hear the stories and see the vision, many more will turn up in future years.”

“We’ve got a great mix of veterans and newcomers on the start list.”

“PWR Holden Rally Team competitor, John Hederiks, is back to defend his auto title. Adrian Channing and David Schwarz, who finished second and third in the bikes last time, are also back and will be hoping they can move up on the podium this time.”

“But the fact that we now have a new course in a totally different part of the country means the winners really could come from anywhere.”
