With the 2019 Hunter Rivmasta sponsored New South Wales Off Road Championship shortened from previous years due to the unfortunate cancellations of the renowned Warialda 200 and Kempsey 250 last month due to the dry conditions, the Championship will come down to this weekend’s finale at the Nabiac Motorsport Complex.

With a superb field of 56 set to face the start line on Saturday it is undoubtedly the best Nabiac line up in the events history. The race itself is to be vigorously contested for outright honours, headlined by the return of three-time event champion Justin Guy #919, last year’s winner Peter Skaza #83, 2017 Champion Bryce Chapman #58, and last year’s runner up Derek Rose #62.

Promoted by the Central North Coast Sporting Car Club, proudly sponsored by the Nabiac Hotel, the annual Nabiac Airport Challenge, which now presents the winner with the Len Barron Midway Cup, is a tough unique test of man and machine over difficult sand and dirt terrain including the famous airstrip start/finish straight.

The battle for the Hunter Rivmasta sponsored New South Wales Off Road Championship is also one to watch closely with multiple crews poised for success on Sunday, where the state will crown a new champion.

Anthony Abson #1026 leads the way after a consistent 2019 to date, 15 points clear of Thomas Berry #246 in second in his first full assault on the championship, sitting 3 points ahead of Michael Latimore #7 in 3rd in his return season!

Warren Barron #258, Kevin Cant #6611 and Nathan Chivers #676 are all still within striking distance of NSW Championship after a mixed season of results to date.

Amongst the anticipated front runners for the Nabiac title include multiple time champion Justin Guy who is searching for his first outright win for 2019, last year’s hard charging champion Peter Skaza #83 and runner up Derek Rose #62 who will be looking to go one better in 2019. Bryce Chapman #58 has a perfect strike rate at Nabiac after claiming the outright win in 2017, coming off a Goondiwindi 400 victory he is one to keep an eye on over the weekend, so too is the ever entertaining Glen Towers #80 who’s best finish to date this year was a 5th at the St.George 399 in April.

Other pro buggies in the mix include past champion David Spokes #46, who will line up beside fellow Kempsey Macleay members Matt Huxley #16 looking for a strong result to finish 2019, Tim Baker #69 and Benjamin Scott #76. Current NSW Pro buggy Championship leader Mick Latimore #7 will unleash his power on his home track for the first time in a number of years in search of a well deserved state title, Craig Barnett #68 is fresh off the back of a 4th outright at the Don River Dash race in North Queensland and goes into the weekend with form on the board. Scott Davis #77 and Gerard Bawden #78 will also make the trek up the coast for a shot at Nabiac glory.

Prolite campaigner Scott McNeill #122 is who has had plenty of success at Nabiac is back looking to improve on his 4th outright in 2018, Jono Patterson #174 was 6th in 2018 and is once again well placed for an outright. Sam Egan #188 will return to Nabiac for the first time since his 2nd outright in 2016 and will be eager to rip the Jimco into gear once again, likewise will Jeremy Robards #139 who placed 3rd in the corresponding race. Other prolites set to make their mark include Brendan Turner #193, Michael Spokes #116 who will have his second outing in his new car and Johnson Racing who will once again have a two car team at Nabiac with Andrew taking the reins of #199 and young Ryan #176 set to make his mark in off-road racing.

Paul Grant #405 in the teams Oz truck who claimed second outright at the event in 2013, Glen Towers #480 who found some nice form in 2019 campaigning the CAMS AORC in his Brenthel Industries Trophy Truck, current championship leader Luke Kenyon #494 and Kevin Ottey #409 are all certain to entertain the crowds in their respective trucks – definitely a class to watch closely !

SXS Turbo competitors will be once again out to spoil the buggy party including Nathan Chivers #696 who currently holds the championship lead courtesy of an outright win at the Colo Park challenge earlier in the season, whilst local competitor and 2017 runner up Jay Neate #644 will look to go one better in 2019. Peter Carr #698 who finished 5th in the 2019 CAMS AORC was dynamic at Dondingalong earlier in the year claiming the win and will be one to watch this weekend, so too will Phil Lovett #697 who was holding the lead at Nabiac last year before mechanical failure ended his charge. Alex Grady #696, Justin Chisholm #628, Ian Kenah #636 and Darrel Robins #682 will to be out to finish 2019 on a high.

Sportslite competitors include Anthony Abson #1026 who is chasing a maiden NSW Championship, Scott Muma #1020 and Robert McCarthy #1066 are sure to feature, so too is the impressive Hilux of Joshua Nurrish #844 which won the event in 2012. Nurrish holds a slender lead in the Extreme 4WD championship battle over veteran and multiple time state champion Ian Cotton #805 who will be eager for a good run. David O’Grady #888, Ian Edgell #832, Lucky Mattiussi #831 and Chris Phillips #899 round out a terrific line up of 4WD tin tops.

The always entertaining super 1650 class will again be spearheaded by current NSW championship leader Thomas Berry #246, who is closely trailed by Warren Barron #258 who will be looking to defend his NSW Class title. Last year’s NSW outright Championship and class runner up Richard Wilton #206 will return to Nabiac after a strong showing at Milbrodale, whilst Kempsey members Matt Morgan #238, Des Woods #260 and Steve Harris #298 will be sought after class silverware.

Greg Barron #312 has all but secured another NSW Sportsman title though will be keen to finish the season on the right note at Nabiac, Gary Hardie #384 will step into a sportsman after duelling in the pro buggy class over the first few rounds whilst Nathan Edwards #335 will make his Nabiac debut.

Kevin Cant #6611 heads into the weekend with the SXS Sport class well within his grasp though will have Gavin Robinson #6639 chasing hard, another title race that will go to the wire at Nabiac. Last year’s Production 4WD Nabiac champion Bruce Morgan #761 returns in 2019 and is set to face stiff competition from Oliver Coakes #789 and Darren Blackburn #747.

It is set to be another intriguing Nabiac event this weekend, with many outright and championship contenders set to make their mark!
