<![CDATA[Rainbow desert Enduro]]> http://vorra.org.au/news_details.php?blog_id=113
VORRA has been working hard for the last few months to secure a place to run a state round race. It is our good fortune that Rainbow was put into our hands to do this. We have massive support from the council and the comunity to run this race and it has been amazing to have so much support from them.

We think the track is awesome and will make evryone happy with lots of variety and plenty of fast areas to show what you can do.  The Pit area is going to be the best around and we are very excited about our future at Rainbow, 

Recently we have been approached to have a think about running this great track as a National Championship Race, After lots of discussion and possitive respones from Rainbow  and the committee at VORRA we decided to go with it. We will put our heart and souls into making this a great race that evryone will want to come back too. 

We hope to see  you all here to run this great event.

Brett Price from The Victorian Off Road Racing Association says the event will be fantastic for the region.
“This event will not only add to Rainbow’s existing sporting and recreational offerings, but also increase awareness of tourism opportunities and features in the region,” Price said.
“We've just had a working bee last weekend with club members and the local community pitching in to help prepare the course.”
Competition vehicles will be located on Federal Street on the Friday for Scrutiny including a public display, as part of an opportunity for the community to get up close and personal with the cars and the crews. The event will then be followed by a prologue on Saturday and racing Sunday.
The track lap length is 80kms and is located in the township of Rainbow and the surrounding areas, some 400kms North-West of Melbourne.
In addition to the event being the 2017 AORC season finale, the Enduro will also be a round of the CAMS Victorian Off Road Championship.

<![CDATA[Sandown Display]]> http://vorra.org.au/news_details.php?blog_id=106 The Silver Fox was asked to be put on display out at Sandown on Friday.
CAMS had an event similar to a Motor Khana aimed at the younger 12 to 18 age group. There were 2 other displays there one being go carts and the other a formula V. They had the kids learning a few things in the cars out on the track and then were doing some tighter work in the car park between all the orange cones. Unfortunately this part was called off by Sandown as there were tyre marks being left on the carpark and this was not acceptable to Sandown so this drew all the people away from the displays. We managed to get to talk to a few people about our wonderful sport and gave them a flyer with VORRA's  Face book and web site addresses on it along with a few others so they could watch some footage.A great idea by CAMS just fell a little short on the execution and communication. Lunch was provided and was very nice.

This weekend Brett, Rob and Matt went up to Mildura and Keera Station to get a look at the NEW track being set up on Ivan's property. The boys spent quite a few hours going around the track and working out what track marking is required, where the pits and timing along with the start finish line etc are going to be. Over all they came home if not a little tired, very happy with what looks like being a track that has it all. You can't ask for anymore then that?
Today I booked Ziggy's Café to supply food from Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast and lunch.

Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to organize an alternative event to the planed ARB Highlands 150 which was to be held on the 4th and 5th of October 2014.

NEW EVENT DETAILS

NAME ARB Keera Station 360
VENUE Keera Station - Approx 50km’s west of Mildura
DATE 1st & 2nd of November 2014
DISTANCE 360km’s

This is the final round of the 2014 Victorian State Championship and will be held on Ivan Robertson’s property west of Mildura.

The Australian Off Road Commission wishes to thank the organisers at Baroota for their quick response and support of the Championship by providing the land, infrastructure and organisation to ensure this event is a great addition to the Australian Off Road Championship.

AORC registered competitors competing in the Tri Series, who had nominated Griffith as one of their rounds in the Tri-Series will have their nomination by default transferred to Baroota but can change this by contacting CAMS.
