This weekend will see the Hattah Desert Race take place, with South Australia sending a huge contingent of riders and support crews heading across the border to ride in Australia’s ‘other’ great desert race! The Hattah Desert Race is held near Hattah Victoria and is located is on Boonoonar Road. The turn off is about 26km south of Red Cliffs.
Motorcycling SA would like to wish all of our riders the best of luck this weekend, ride hard, ride safe and enjoy what is, one of the great events in Australian off road motorcycling!
