Entries are now open for the 2019 Hindmarsh Shire Rainbow Desert Enduro, the third and final round of the 2019 CAMS BFGoodrich Australian Off Road Championship. Now considered one of the more brutal events in the Australian off road racing scene, the little Victorian township of Rainbow will again come alive from August 8 to 10 for the AORC decider!

Spearheading the championship race once again heading into the final round is defending Australian Off Road Champion Shannon Rentsch #1, a flawless performance at St George by the ten time champion followed by a fifth at the Finke Desert Race has him placed on 681 pts.

Hot on his heels is Australian Motorsport Hall of Famer Mark Burrows #21, who trails Rentsch by just 36 points. Amazingly, Burrows a seven time Australian Off Road Champion, claimed his first title in 1988. A controlled third at St George and a fourth at Finke has the veteran campaigner well within striking distance of a eight and most memorable championship victory with his son Mathew by his side.

Currently in third position on 564 pts is Steven Graham #1065, a superhuman fourth outright at St George in his Sportslite Tatum, backed up by a 12th at Finke has the New South Welshman in with a shot of AORC glory. With a strong result at the Rainbow Rises earlier in the season, the confidence will be soaring for 1065 Motorsport.

Young gun Josh Howells #3 is still a huge mathematical chance at AORC silverware and after an outstanding second outright at the recent Finke Desert Race he sits in fourth. The Howells Motorsport campaigner now has the belief to go all the way, and will be out to mount pressure on the front runners at Rainbow!

Broken Hill’s Nick Jackson #655 has had two terrific results to date and sits firmly in fifth outright 100 points adrift of Howells.

Rentsch and Burrows will also be battling for the Pro Buggy Championship, with Howells, Finke Desert Race champion Jack Rhodes #91 and Glen Towers #80 all within grasp of a podium spot.

2017 Australian Champion Mathew Martin #103 has the lead in the Prolite championship with Ally Howells #102 well within striking distance holding second after a superb 14th at Finke.

The Super1650 Championship is all tied at the top between Werner Zettl #232 and Declan Cummins #210, the winner at Rainbow to take season honours. Geoff Pickering #701 has secured yet again another Production 4WD title after two super showings. Steven Graham has a big advantage over Patrick Geraghty #1009 in the Sportslite division. Jamie Knight #439 has a large lead in the Extreme 2WD battle, a strong Finke debut has the Queenslander with a nice lead over Brett Taylor #401 and David Towers #480 heading into the Desert Enduro.

Nick Jackson finds himself in the SXS Turbo category lead, over Allen Henson #684 in second and super realiable Greg Campbell #603. Rodyn Bailey #622, Toby Whately #2 and Jeff McNiven #602 are all in range of a podium position. The SXS Sport class may be the closest fought over the Rainbow weekend, Rick Chambers #6669 holds the advantage after two rounds, though is being chased by John Wise #6656 and Chris Land #6680.

The endurance style event is one not to miss in Rainbow over the second weekend of August where new class and outright CAMS BFGoodrich Australian Champions will be crowned. Can Rentsch make it an unprecedented 11 Australian titles? Will Mark Burrows steal the show and claim his first title in an incredible 16 years, or will it be Steven Graham or Josh Howells weekend to shine, all the unfold at Rainbow!
