We appreciate the support of all competitors and their families of the event and to the town. Also our event sponsors: Grain Corp, Hindmarsh Shire Council, IGA and Quality Metal Solutions (trophies).

Our timing this year was managed by Murray and Julie Rogers of Off Road, this has brought the event to the next level, their professionalism and timing was excellent, with a direct feed to the commentary team all weekend and a screen for spectators to check out the results during the event. For those that couldn’t make it, the results were streamed “live” on their website over the weekend. A full set of results are available on their website:

An event is not able to run without volunteers, thank you to the Rainbow Town Committee for their ongoing support and tireless hours setting up and providing catering all weekend. Along with many local community members who volunteered across the weekend. Together with the VORRA organising committee and members for their commitment and support of the event.

We look forward to welcoming you back on 28-30 August for the Hindmarsh Shire Rainbow Desert Enduro 560 – Round 4 of the BFGoodrich Motorsport Australia Off Road Championship, Round 3 Victorian Motorsport Australia Championship and Round 9 of the Victorian Off Road Club Shield.
