Easter is just around the corner and so is the 30th Anniversary Condo 750 navigational rally. Situated just 450km west of Sydney is Condobolin, the heart of NSW and the centre of off road racing. With 34 Auto’s already signed up for this iconic race, why not plan an Easter break in the Australia bush. If two wheels is more your thing, you won’t be disappointed with a great line up of over 60 motorcycles ready to navigate their way around the outback tracks.

Friday morning (30th March) will kick off with scrutineering taking place at the show grounds from 9am till 12pm. This is your opportunity to get a close look at all the machinery and talk to competitors. A 34km prologue will start at 12:30pm with each competitor getting the chance to shake down his vehicle and settle the nerves while sorting out who is quickest for the Saturday race start.

Racing gets underway early Saturday with the first competitor hitting the track at 6:30am. Autos race one course, while bikes/quads race a separate course. These are then reversed for Sunday’s race. Racing will be long and tough, with competitors racking up over 1000km in two days, including 778km of competitive racing! On Sunday evening be sure to make your way back to the showgrounds for the presentation, dinner and the opportunity to wash the dust down with a few beverages.
