Schlifelner takes out Rainbow Rises 240

Date: 12th March 2019| Category: General
Congratulations #1055 Eric Schlifelner on winning the innaugural Rainbow Rises 240 in a time of 2:29:28 and #1064 Steven Graham second outright on 2.30.09 and #619 Luke Densly third outright on 2:42:54.

We would like to thank all the competitors that supported this new event, it was a great success.  We had 24 competitors, with eight cars completing the full distance. The format was two groups of 4 heats and the conditions were dusty, with light showers.

The locals come out to watch and thanks to #420 Justin Watt for taking the local Mayor Ron Ismay for a lap of the track and showing him what it is like.

A big thank you to local community Rainbow Race Committee, they did a great job leading up to, during and after the event, to ensure the track and facilities were second to none and contributed to the success of the event. Along with catering and feeding the teams all day. Also the local medical team and the CFA, to ensure the health and safety of everyone.

Daren and Glen Wells once again provided commentary, which was entertaining and informative, thanks guys.

Thanks to Agritech for sponsoring the fasted beam car - congratulations #248 Peter Stevenson - he took home a 56 litre esky, 5 litre cooler jug and BBQ set.

All this wouldn't be possible without the support of DELWP and Graincorp for their ongoing support.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back in August for the Rainbow Desert Enduro.
