|Australasian Safari: Ardross Group to bring Safari to Turquoise Coast.|
The first challenge for off-road racing competitors in this year’s "Australasian Safari" in Western Australia (September 2013) will be tackling the sandy beach tracks bordering the beautiful turquoise coast of Jurien Bay.
Approximately 100 competitors in off-road vehicles such as 4x4’s, motorbikes and quads will travel to Jurien Bay on Friday 20th September to take part in the motorsport competition’s Prologue leg.
The prologue, which is used to test the vehicles and work out the starting order for the next day, will be a seven kilometer course run on vacant land south of the Beachridge Estate, thanks to landowner and leg sponsor Ardross Group of Companies.
David Lantzke, General Manager of Ardross Group of Companies said hosting the event would help promote the region to an international audience and showcase just how stunning the region is. “Jurien Bay is a popular recreation hub for many Western Australians. We look forward to having the Australian Safari here to showcase the beauty of the Turquoise Coast to the international fans and competitors,” he said.
Metropolitan motorsport fans are welcome to make the short two hour drive north of Perth to Beachridge Estate to see competitors start racing in earnest. Competition will kick-off with a Ceremonial Start at 9:45am.
Beachridge Estate is located in Jurien Bay, a popular holiday destination with its Mediterranean climate and relaxed holiday feel. The long sandy beaches and turquoise coloured coastline makes the region popular with fishing, diving and snorkelling enthusiasts.
Australia’s toughest off-road motorsport adventure, the Australasian Safari, will commence with a Safari Show at Wanneroo Showgrounds on Thursday 19 September. Competitors will cross the finish line in Geraldton after seven tough days in the Western Australian outback on Friday 27 September.
