Kalgoorlie Desert Race 2019
« on: 07 March, 2019, 11:27:27 AM »

What: Kalgoorlie Desert Race 2019

Where: Kalgoorlie International Speedway and Surrounds

When: 25th - 27th October 2019

Who: Everyone

Trip Leader: Ropes

Terrain:
1 - Relatively Easy (Beginners)
2 - Moderate to Easy
3 - Moderate
4 - Moderate to Serious
5 - Serious and Endurance


Rating out of 5 will be?: 1 on the way there (black track) 2-4 to reach position.

Distance: 1500km approx. round trip

Description:
The Kalgoorlie Desert Race was known as the Kalgoorlie 400 which had been part of the WAORC and a national round. This year's race will be Round 6 of the WAORC. It will be held over 3 days consisting of Bikes, Quads, Buggies, Trophy Trucks and Side by Sides. The race course is over 150km long with at least 13 checkpoints. It was built in 2018. Some of the checkpoints are also controlled passages over main roads. We may also need additional recovery vehicles due to the extended track! This is to be confirmed.

Roles to be filled:

Checkpoint Controllers
Duties of checkpoint controllers (no experience required!):
• Record the vehicles as they come past the checkpoint
• Crowd control to prevent spectators from getting too close or crossing the live race track
• Report to base which vehicles have come through when required
• Control traffic as required
• Inform Race Control if vehicles have not gone through the checkpoints or if there are any other incidents that could affect the safety of drivers, spectators and officials
• May need to provide some assistance to drivers if recovery teams are too far away
• Keep public traffic off the race track

Recovery/Sweep Drivers (to be confirmed!)

Duties of recovery teams (experience in recovery preferred):
• Recover any competitors which may include rolling the vehicle back on its wheels and dragging it back to the Pits
• Coordinate between recovery teams and Race Control
• Escort competitors off the track and back to the Pit area
• Roam between checkpoints when required

About checkpoints:
Some checkpoints are quite isolated where you'll be the only ones there unless the recovery teams come past while others will have spectators and traffic control. Isolated checkpoints will require at least 2 people while the busier checkpoints will require at least 4 people.
Check Point radios will be installed on arrival or the earliest opportunity by Goldfields Off Road

As this is a CAMS event it is advisable to become a CAMS Accredited Official

Ok people, heads up for those who are definitely coming on this trip, if you haven't already, now would be a good time to get onto doing the CAMS courses because it can take a few weeks to receive your card.
For those who are maybe’s or even just thinking about it, I’d recommend doing the course too, it is after all, free.

When you have done the courses and received your license, please PM me your CAMS License details.

Cheers

There seems to be a few online CAMS courses, which one do I need?

Just completed the Bronze - Off Road Official, hoping that's the correct one :)

Let me know if it's not.

Card and passbook comes in the mail.
Card shows expiry but also shows in Member Services from the CAMS Dashboard.

Um, not seen any expiry date on the certificate.
Had a look around the website under my profile, nothing notable.
Can someone point me in the direction where I may find this please.

When you login and are on the Dashboard that shows your courses, look for Member Services (in the header towards the middle), click in there and it shows the expiry in there too.

Interesting...
I downloaded my certificate on completion of the course (Bronze Off Road Official), but nothing appears in my list of licences when I log in.
But.. it does show under My Courses as "In Progress"... maybe it's waiting for them to prepare and send the card... ;)
Are we meant to belong to a club as part of this process?
