102 SOUTH AUSSIES HEADING TO HATTAH THIS WEEKEND
This weekend will see the annual trek to North West Victoria for the famous Hattah Desert Race, with the 500+ field dotted with 102 South Australians across all classes (with perhaps a few more with those who haven’t listed a club).
48 junior and 54 senior South Aussies will attack the 2019 event, with the largest class being an eye into the future of the sport here in SA, the Under 19’s, which has 13 entries from SA and will be spearheaded by Will Price and Cooper Sheidow.
The next biggest class is the 200-250cc 4 stroke 13 – U16 Years class with 12 entries, led by Mitchell Stanway & Charlie Milton
