Cooking up a big event

As the first round of the BFGoodrich CAMS Australian Off Road Championship draws near, preparations for the St George 399 are almost complete.

Assistant Clerk of Course and St George Bakery owner, Trent Challenger, has been hard at work alongside members of the St George community to get the track ready for the event.

With the final corner recently completed, as well as the redesign of the ‘bakers dozen’ to include a better approach angle, the new track changes should allow fans to experience fantastic viewing.

An excited Clerk of Course Barry Neuendorff recently visited St George to spend time with Challenger to overlook the course, as well as test the country town’s local cuisine.

“Trent was very obliging and took me for a drive around the course for the 2018 St George 399 AORC Round 1 of the National Championship,” Neuendorff stated.

“This was the first time I have viewed the course, purely because I wasn’t available in 2017 to attend the event but came away very impressed with its location and quality.

“It puts everything into perspective and gives me a much greater idea of the venue and its layout.”

And the baking has been given the official tick of approval.

“I can assure competitors that they (the St George Bakery pies) are worth the money and satisfies the inner man.”

Neuendorff has been meeting frequently with the organising committee headed by Anthony Brose, to stay up to date with planning, expectations, compliance and deliverance of required activities.

While entries close on 27 April, the St George 399 has already confirmed 58 competitors to take part in the 2018 BFGoodrich CAMS Australian Off Road Championship first round, which will be held on 4 May.
