Hattah Desert Race 2013

Recommended Posts

For you guys over in the States, the Hattah Desert Race was held last weekend in Australia.

It's now one of the biggest events on the Australian off-road calendar. Former world motocross champ Ben Townley event had a crack this year.

These vids give you a good idea what the whole weekend's about.

Ignore the bloody music - not sure why people feel they have to stick music to stuff, especially this doof doof business.

Looks like a fun event. I thought the vids were good, music included.

Question though, it's an interesting start with the quad sputtering down the line. Does then event go off of adjusted time somehow?

They're lined up based on the times they did on the prologue the day before.

The main event is based on track position only, not adjusted time.

The few seconds gained from rider to rider in each line as the quad passes them is miniscule when you take into account the event is more than four hours long.

There did seem to be a fair delay between lines though I noticed. All the more reason to do well in the prologue I guess. Awesome race to watch and ride in.
