Real down and dirty cham­pi­ons

The Courier-Mail - Motoring - - FRONT PAGE -

SOUTH Aus­tralian roughrid­ers David Fel­lows and Mark Bergamin took last year’s Aus­tralian Off Road Cham­pi­onship with their tur­bocharged Toy­ota-pow­ered Jimco racer, dom­i­nat­ing the ProClass.

The 2010 sea­son was marked by ex­treme weather con­di­tions, with the fifth and fi­nal round at Goondi­windi can­celled be­cause of flood­ing in the area.

Colin Hunter and Simon Camp­bell took the Ex­treme 4WD class in their Chero­kee, Clay­ton Chap­man and Adam McGuire won the Pro­duc­tion 4WD class in a Tri­ton while Jeff and Jai Loader won the per­for­mance 2WD class in a Chev-pow­ered Navara.

Other 2010 ti­tle win­ners in­cluded Dar­ryl Smith and Michael Matthews (Su­per 1650 bug­gies) plus Justin and Melissa Watt (Pro­lite).

The five-round Aus­tralian Off Road Cham­pi­onship kicks dirt again from Easter this year with the first round in Western Aus­tralia be­fore mov­ing on to the Finke Desert race, Grif­fith, Pines En­duro and then Goondi­windi.
