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 2017. 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

I'm surprised that there isn't more interest in the trip, it was a cracker last year.

I'm not ignoring this.. I'd love to go..
But I have a small matter of Matt being down from Hells Crack over those few days.. (No!. I'm unlikely to get him to join me) and a wedding that I [apparantly] have to attend :(

Ok people I have finally managed to get in contact with the race director, who has in turn put me in touch with his chief organiser minion!
What I need to know is who is more than likely to be coming? I need to give names & vehicles so the chief minion can organise where he needs us! He needs to fill checkpoint marshals , road closure marshals & roaming recovery vehicles! I can suggest what you would want to do but ultimately where you go is up to him! The sooner I get this info the better!
Cheers guys!
