Desert Raid - 7 August 2019 - Empress Springs

Postby Digger » Sun Jun 10, 2018 2:02 pm

Here we go again...the last one nearly killed me!

A small group of us are going for a ride... with an open invite for any like-minded adventure riders to meet up there.

As per previous Desert Raid gatherings, you need to be self sufficient as nothing is provided. Do your own research on track conditions and make your own decision if you have the skills/preparation to undertake the ride.

At this stage, we're going to camp at Empress Springs, 60km North of Great Central Road on the Eagle Highway/David Carnegie Road.

The nearest fuel is available at Tjukayirla Roadhouse which is approx 75kms due South of the camp on Great Central Road.

The Border Run (Eucla) is on 3 Aug - off roaders can make it a loop ride if they've got the time.

Hey Digger
Is this really for 2019 or are you just trying to see if we read things on the site.
Could it be 2018 ???

No misprint here...Desert Raid is every second year to offset the Off Centre Rally (OCR) which is also held every second year....they alternate.

7 August 2019!!!!

The 2019 Empress Springs destination is an excellent choice for the ten (10) year anniversary Desert Raid.

The term "RAID" in Desert Raid was “borrowed” after seeing a 2CV RAID underway on the "Tojo" Highway a couple hundred kilometres northeast of Kalgoorlie. I thought I was on my own on a remote track in my Landcruiser when out of no-where came a dozen Citroen 2CV’s on a RAID.

Amazing!
