Families to unite at Loveday 400

Families will now be further united at the upcoming Loveday 400 with the introduction of the brand-new Off Road Family Cup to feature at the July event.

Serving as the fourth round of the Polaris Motorsport Australia Off-Road Championship (AORC), families who have entered two or more cars will have the opportunity to combine their points and work together in an attempt to win the newly introduced competition.

The points will be divided across the number of cars entered in for one family, while bonus starting points will also be given to even out the competition for those entered with more than two cars.

This will allow for each family member to have something to work towards – with every second counting towards more than just the outright or individual class rankings.

Event organiser, Tony Whateley believed the introduction of the new cup will encourage more families to get involved in the event.

“Off-road racing is a family sport, and what better way is there to promote the family aspect of our sport by encouraging families to work together and battle for a trophy,” Whateley said.

“We have had some incredible families come together to compete here in the past, and I can’t wait to see them all unite again this year, as well as which family will be fastest and stand on top of the podium.

“I think this will only further benefit the sport and all competitors involved.”

Making its second appearance on the AORC calendar after a highly successful debut last year, the event kicks off with Scrutineering on Friday and Prologue on Saturday morning, before the action gets underway on Saturday afternoon.

Five laps await crews on the first day of action with Heat 1 to be made up of two laps and Heat 2 to consist of three laps.

On Sunday, crews will begin with three laps of the course for Heat 3 before finishing up with the final two laps in Heat 4.

The Loveday 400 will be the fourth round of 2023 AORC season and takes place in Loveday 4×4 Adventure Park on 28-30 July.
