DIRECTIONS TO CAMP SITE
Travel approximately 30km north of Broken Hill on the Silver City Hwy toward Tibooburra. Corona Rd will be on your left. Travel along Corona Rd for 500m until you cross the first cattle grid. Immediately after the cattle grid turn left. This will be sign posted. Travel along the track for 3.6km and you will be at sign in.
In order to get access to the pit areas you must register your vehicle at sign in. You will be given a sticker for the windscreen to notify the marshal onsite of the vehicles accreditation. With limited space in the pit areas only 1 vehicle per rider is permitted. Please note the access to Pit 1 is strictly 4WD only. A 2WD vehicle or all wheel drive will not get there. Allow an hour to get to Pit 1. For those without a pit vehicle we can provide transport of your fuel and supplies. Make sure they are well labelled.
Enviromats must be used when replenishing any fluids. All riders must dismount from the bike before refuelling and engines must be stopped.
After sign in you can get your gpx file at race control. This will be well marked. Make sure you know how to use you GPS and how to turn the track display on and off. It is up to you to know how this works, we will not have time to teach you. Make sure you carry spare batteries with you. We recommend an anti glare screen protector as it can be hard to see in the dust and bright sunlight. Remember – without a functioning GPS you will have no idea where to go.
There will be a basic practice track setup so you can test your gps. This will be a speed restricted course. There will be no practise area on the property otherwise.
RIDERS BRIEFING (is COMPULSORY)
All riders (parent or guardian if under 18years) must attend, there will be a random roll call, any competitor not present will be fined.
COURSE AND FORMAT
Cross Country Course: A single 150km Loop in extreme Outback terrain consisting of sandy river beds, extreme rocky gorges and shaly hills. The course is navigated primarily by GPS. There will be markers on the course to notify of some sharp turns. Please note: Not all obstacles or turns will be marked. The course is broken up into 5 stages. You must stop at each checkpoint where your number will be recorded. It is at this point where you will turn on the next stage on your GPS. At the end of the event the place getter will have their GPS reviewed to ensure the correct course was followed. Make sure you have your track recording set to on. If a course cannot be determined the rider will be ineligible for results. No Deviation will be accepted. Any competitor found to have deviated from the intent of the course and gaining an advantage will be given a time penalty of a minimum 5 minutes up to exclusion from the event.
The start order will be determined by a prologue. The prologue will be a marked course and will not require GPS navigation. Starters will leave in pairs at 15 second intervals unless deemed unsuitable on the day. The Clerk of Course reserves the right to seed riders into the start order for the purposes of safety before the event.
Will take place at the completion of Madmax after 6pm.
