A number of local motorsport enthusiasts took on the annual Finke Desert Race in Alice Springs over the long weekend in both the motorcycle & car sections.

The event was tragically cut short due to death of a spectator after the man was struck a vehicle on the day two of the event.

Event organisers made the call to award results on day one times in the Motorcycle section. 

Renmark Rider Kyle Pfitzner was the first home for the local riders finishing a solid 8th outright out of 543 riders.  

Fellow Riverland Rider Bode Baylis finished a very respectable 44th outright.

Other local Riders Drew Garterey & Jack Colbert both recorded top 100 finishes.
